    So I went ahead and had some vinyl yard sings made and put one in my parents front yard. My lazy ass should have done it in May when I first got them but I didn't have the time and I wasn't living in OH. Basically it's been in my parents front yard for the last 3 weeks and I've had 8 calls on it and 8 people that want their cars detailed before the cooler weather comes through. Today is an 08 Cadillac DTS and the next is a 50th anniversary vette z06. Pics will be forthcoming...I hope I remember what I'm doing :sadwavey:

    Thanks and yep, it was like riding a bike, I was just a bit slower than I used to be when I was doing it a few times a week. No worries though and the customer was thrilled. He gave me an FOP card and asked for my business cards to give out to people he knows and wants me to detail his car and 2 motorcycles in the spring when the weather breaks.
