I found that when i worked in the light, i can see the swirl marks. in the shade they are hidden and most products u cannot use in the sun. I hear from scottwax though, some can be used in the sun. Soon i will have to purhase the equipment to get the business off and running. I figure a water tank, a small generator, a small pressure washer, already have a rotary and pc, extractor, vacuuum, and maybe a great service a ozone generator. Now lighting! anyone use a canopy to shade from the sun, but at the same time use those big ligths that are on like a tripod to see what you are doing? I think this method would be great, but alot of stuff to hall around. when i detailed in the sun, i got tired really quickly and didnt have energy. that is how come i perfer a canopy. Also apperance how professional are you. I wouldnt mind paying a small amount of money to have a couple uniforms made, some dickies work pants and a shirt with the name of the company etc on it. i think this will show the customer how much you are a professional and take u more seriously as well as letting friends know how you work and look. I mean yeah the work is good that is what there going to remember, but if u act professinal, look professional and do professional work i believe that equals a sucessful business. What you guys think about all these ideas above?
