Default How many detail other peoples vehicles for them?

I know we all take very good car for the most part of our Montes. I was wondering how many of you detail other vehicles for people. I have owned my own business in custom full on detailing since I was 12 with my brother until he graduated and I took over. Unfortunately I had to shut down my business due to college and needing a steady income. Now, If asked, I detail peoples vehicles on the side of my job I have during the summer and on breaks when I come home.

How many of you detail peoples vehicles for them or run your own detailing business or run it on the side of the other job you have? I thought this would be cool to share to know how many of you took your talent and helped others with it!!

I'm currently in the process of starting up my own business. I've been working on a good fanbase first before I make it official.

I have been starting to. Since I get my Monte it is never dirty and a lot of people have asked me where I have it washed and detailed and when I told them I do it all myself they started asking if I wanted to do it. So do a couple car's for the people I work with and then where I live it's like a little circle so I have like 5 houses right next to me and I do pretty much all of there car's for some extra cash. Mainly I just like making cars look good lol. I may keep it going and start posting up stuff on craigslist and what not and try to get a little business going.

I help my brother-in-law, sister, and parents with car cleaning.

when I visit the poconos I always bring my bucket of cleaning supplies and if it is nice out and everyone is over we wash cars and listen to music haha
