    This one took about 17 hours @ $60/hr. (what a paint correction detail costs)

    First time forum details always gets a discount. Also discounts for what you want, vehicle, location etc.!

    I'm always down to travel. I have done a weekend trip up north and detailed all weekend. I love what I do so i'm willing to travel far and get paid less. :D
