Good luck bro! But with some of these questions I have concerns. What DA or rotary are you using? You should really look into the Flex or Griot's Garage! The old PC's aren't powerful enough for most beginners and novice especially w/o proper tech. You can slow the pad down and your correction could take longer, which = less money. What types of polishes, clay, waxes, sealants, etc are you using? And where are the before and after 50/50 shots? You need pics to show people what you can do. The reason I say that is "Hack Job Hector" is charging the same amount and does NOT do quality work. You need a midrange (single stage paint correction) mixed in their. Most people will go for that. I have detailed many of cars before and only use boutique products from Autogeek.net or over the counter stuff like Stoner's or Meg's that can be found @ Wally's World for the cheapest around. Keep us post!

I actually bought mine at Lowes about 6 years ago. I don't think they sell it there anymore. I bought a 3m flexible backing plate with hook & loop. I actually also use it as a sander for woodworking projects I do so it gets dual use.

This thing is actually quite powerful. I generally use speed #6 most of the time. The difference between 5 and 6 is pretty drastic.

Well worth the investment along with a good set of assorted cutting, polishing, and waxing pads.

I have PC too and can vouch for it. I took out a lot of pinstriping I got from an offroading mishap...lol...lifesaver.

I'd say work on your presentation more for the bus and you'll see a lot more customers and can probably charge more. First impressions are EVERYTHING.
