    The wiseguy in me says take it to a car wash and make someone else clean it. uber-profit. :rofl: I'm just kidding, of course.

    Seriously -- Be thankful you have the business. A buddy of mine is really struggling because a majority of his clients are losing their jobs and homes, etc, i.e. no money for detailing.

    I got a jet black 335 to do sometime in the next few weeks that is covered in holograms, so be thankful you have a Tundra. Jet black 3 series paint is a fucking nightmare.

    $400 on a job that should have been about $275 or so. Dont get me wrong its good money, pays my puppahs vet bills and my speeding / seat belt ticket but not how I envisioned my labor day weekend. Julia is not please....

    The paint is butter soft, just applying and removing wax can mar the paint.
