Do you also detail the engine compartment? and if so what kind of a solution do you use so the plastic and rubber pieces are not harmed?

we use 3M all perpous cleaner mixed 3 parts water 1 part 3m. just spray it on, let it sit and scrub were needed.after that we just rinse it all off. then we use this stuff called REFLECT made by Autoglym to dress the engine compartment. we just spray it on everywhere, let it soak into the plastic an rubber and wipe of the excess to give it a nice satin finish.

sorry zeb. the reflect isn't made by autglym but rather carbrite. autoglym makes awesome leather conditioner which makes the seats supper supple. autoglym is a company out of the UK(they are the only products used on the queens vehicles) but you can probably order the stuff off the internet. carbrite also makes awesome car washing liquid called cherry bomb. it's smells ohh so good and it's ultra slick.

That's a great way to earn some extra money. I've been detailing as a side job for 10 years now. I mostly do mobile detailing as I have my own trailer set up. Pretty soon you'll be knowing all the tricks of the trade.

We had a mobile detailer who used to drive to our parking lot at work with his van and trailer. He drove cars on the trailer to wash. The trailer had foldable steps on the sides to stand on and a huge pan that collected the water that ran off the washed cars. In his van, he had air, water tank, soap tank, water recycling equipment to recycle the spent water right back in, you name it. It was a complet carwash on wheels and after they were done, there was no trace of anything spilled! They would come once a week and usually had 20 cars to wash. Of course the owner just leaned back, smoked his cigaretts, and chanaged CD's in his CD player while his workers did all the work! Now that is a goooooooooooooood business!
