    For most of my cars I just stand on the floor. To polish the roof of the truck I stand on a folding bench (much easier than standing on the tires like I used to).

    For the most part, I used to detail my own vehicles. However, I also do weekend jobs for relatives and friends and referrals.
    I wash and wash my car until the whole thing disappeared!

    I only detail my truck. The wifes car / the family beater/my car for commuting has holes so large I can put my head through it. If I wash the car, i'll be left with a pile of rust and a frame.

    I operate a mobile detailing business here in Southern New Jersey. Although auto and boat detailing does take up a majority of my time, I also offer a variety of instructional information about detailing, such as Start Your Own Detailing Business Study Guides, Automobile & Boat Detailing Guides and Online Detailing Courses.

    In order to fill the need that people have to learn more about how they can safely clean, polish and wax their own car, I am currently planning to begin teaching onsite detailing tutorials this spring. Basically, my clients would be shown just about everything they need to know in order to detail their own car just like a professional.

    Too bad they will not learn the safe and efficient use of detailing clay.

    Otherwise, good luck with your training classes. I know of a detailer, Gary - Chicago I think, that has become very useful at training.
