Okay guys, espcially Scottwax and whomever else runs their own detailing business. I have some questions. First off, let me explain the situation a little bit. I've always been into detailing my own car and I've often thought about starting up my own business. Ideally the way I would have liked to do it was to start off part time and do it in my garage. Im not a homeowner, but that would be the way I would want to start, if I had a home/garage. Anyways... I have a really good friend, a fellow Marine that I've went on two deployments with who has his own business. He stopped by my work yesterday and presented me with an oppurtunity. He basically said he knows how much I hate my job(he used to work there) and said he has been wishing there was a way he could include me in his business somehow. (He is in business with a friend of his, who I also consider a friend myself.) He told me if I wanted to start something up I could use their workplace. They have a large, heated vehicle bay along with extra office space. Said they would charge me 20 bucks a car or 40 a day, whichever is less to use the space. So, basically I really trust both of these guys. Mark is a really close friend of mine whos offering me(without me even asking) a great oppurtunity. I told him I really appreciate it and I will definately start making some assesments and thinking things out. Im very detail oriented, and believe I have the work ethic to be successful. I've never used a rotary or PC. I planned on picking one up this spring and practing on my dads car before all of this. Mark told me I could practice on his car and the other two guys' cars that work there also if I wanted. They run a sign business and said they could make me up some nice business cards and help market. Now, Im not looking to quit my job and just dive into this. I am going to start slow. First thing I need to do is buy a PC/rotary(whats the diff?) and learn how to use that as Ive learned it is a much faster way to do things as opposed to doing things by hand, and also produce a better result. Any ideas on what I should pick up and what products I should start practicing with? I've used ONR and Ive clayed my car a few times and Ive waxed it with several different types of waxes. Im thinking I need to pick up a couple varying "degrees" of compunds and polishes and learn how to apply them with a PC. Well I know I need to do this..lol...what products should I start with? I plan on at first learning this trade until I feel confident enough to serve customers. Like I said, I may not have the skills yet, but I have a little bit of knowledge from reading on here and experimenting/experience with my own cars and I believe I have the work ethic, maturity, and outstanding friends to hopefully turn this into something I can do for a living EVENTUALLY. Any pointers to well, get me pointed in the right direction at this point would be awesome. Please feel free to give me any input whatsoever. Thanks.
