    Professional detailers are my heroes

    I must take my hat off to the professional detailers that detail and correct paint all day. In the past two days, I've been able to get the car washed and 2 panels corrected with the DA MF compound (covered it with Aqua wax until I get everything done).

    My arms are hurting from holding the PC along the side panels and I've sweated so much I probably lost 5 pounds. I can't imagine doing this all day every day.

    Like I said....you have my ultimate admiration.

    Jenn

    The passion for perfection will keep you going. That and Gatorade.

    Which reminds me. Going to get some Gatorade @10 for $10.

    Mine too. My hat is off to those guys.

    It's really tough climbing into the back seat of a really dirty one on a 100+ day.

    Still after 38 years and going to work at 5 am I still love it. Time flies and the challanges are enormous but the satisfaction out weighs everything else. The average person hasen't a clue on how hard the work is or how hard it is to make it right.

    You gotta build up your polisher muscles, haha.

    It's like anything else. The first few times you do it...you end up being sore, tired, etc. After a while, it just becomes routine.

    I think I speak for probably everyone when I say it's always fun when you get someone who claims what we do is sooooo easy. The best part, is when you put a polisher in their hands and say "yeah, go ahead then". Then you watch the buffer take them for a walk, haha.

    Truth is...we make it look easy. But, it's absolutely not. Thanks Jenn!

    haha, I seek that deal out ALL the time. There's a CVS across the street from my shop...they always have 5-$5 deals on Gatorade and Vitamin Water. When me or one of my guys spots the deal...we pretty much clean them out, lol.
