    How would you like to polish this BEAST?!

    For those who may not know, my side job aside from detailing is a Monorail Pilot at the Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, FL!

    Here is Monorail Blue receiving some routine maintenance. I was talking to one of my coworkers and I found out that one of the local detailing shops actually comes in and buffs one of our trains (we have 12), once a month (a different one each month). They bring about 6 guys and they work on the train overnight!

    The monorails are 203.5 feet long, so at somewhere around $20/foot for a wash and wax, man somebody's making some big $$$!!

    Joe, definitely hit up Disneyland!! They only have 3 monorails and I believe they are shorter than the ones at Walt Disney World.

    Pretty cool and thanks for sharing...

    Projects like the Monorail are good candidates for one-step cleaner/waxes and DA Polishers. Clean, polish and protect in one step without leaving any swirls or burn-throughs.
