    Ordered a cyclo from wcdetail.com.

    Here's the story on why I ordered a cyclo:

    Lent former boss my PC
    Boss allows new hires to use my PC
    PC is treated less than favorably
    Boss says he has ordered a new PC for me
    Attempts to pick up new PC fail
    Attempts to get back pay fail
    Corey posts on local forum to get boss's attention
    Boss replies nastily, expected
    Father calls boss regarding some legalities
    Boss changes attitude, replies to post kindly
    Corey recieves money for PC, 4 pads, and 5 hours work
    Corey decides since he is $80 away from pure detailing pleasure that he will grasp the opportunity
    Corey makes a choppy post

    We shall see.

    lol scott you have no idea what a liar the guy is, and how happy I am to not be working under him. I didn't expose him as a liar, but right down to the brass tacks--saying he ordered it and had it in (from pakshak, i don't think pakshak sells PC's even) it was a fishy situation. I'm just happy it's done with. I recieved support from more people than I expected, and honestly I don't want to detail to make money, I just like it as a hobby for now (meaning the next few years).

    I deleted the post since I didn't want to cause any more drama on autopa. It seems like pooyboys=chemical guy is the new horse. :run:

    Anyway I may do a friends car that is in fairly bad shape, and enter it in the detailing contest. And write a review, of course.

    That's good news.
    I look forward to the review.
    I use a random orbital myself and I know the difference between it and a rotary but I'm not sure how a cyclo works.

    Sorry to hear about the boss Corey...I honestly would've never known from his posts on Autopia...He seems pretty generous but money can fuck anyone up.


    Good Luck with the Cyclo.

    it shipped out today! Took awhile but from my understanding he was waiting on some shipments, and I told him there was no rush. :)

    You will really like the Cyclo. I was going to order one early this summer but my a/c compressor seized, I had an O2 sensor go bad, replaced an axle and the coolant resevoir in the last few months. In addition, in drive at idle, it feels like my car is randomly dropping a cylinder and since the plugs are new, I am suspecting the plug wires, which run about $100 or so for NGKs. :sad2:

    If my car would stop costing me money, I'd get the Cyclo and a buttload of Optimum Polish. :x:

    Dual head random orbital buffer. The heads rotate and oscillate in opposite directions. Just google it.
