Notes
*Price subject to change, as this is an initial feeling-out price. Note: price will NOT alter after making an appointment with aforementioned prices. Prices in parenthesis are a good estimate of what the new prices will be, after the feel-out period.

**Choice of Z2 or Z5 layering, maximum amount of coats is nine over three days (Fri, Sat, Sun); both Z2 and Z5 are ZFX-infused sealants, which cuts down hazing time, but limits application of three coats within a 24 hour period.

Disclaimer
-This Is NOT a Permanent Treatment. Although Protection/Condition Will Last About 4-6 Months, The Vehicle Will Still Require a Periodical Wash to Keep Clean.
-I Am NOT a Professional, I Am a College Student Who Enjoys Detailing
-Travelling Surcharge May Be Added for On-Site Service.
-Only Available For Vehicles Smaller Than a Compact-SUV.
-Tipping is Optional but Always Appreciated.
-Limited Availability for Initial Pricing.
-By Appointment Only/Reservations Strictly Required.
-Not Responsible for Weather Cancellations/Disruptions.
-If I end up getting a gazebo or something, above note is moot...unless it's raining like hell with lightning. And thanks Donny for this template.

Well, those are the first six slots (or nine, if you count those Sundays). I need recovery/study time, since I still go to school on Monday, hence no extra regular slots on Sunday. If Sunday's the only day you can make an appointment, I'll see what I can do, but school's still my priority.

If I missed anything, or you guys have any suggestions, please feel free to tune in. Thanks.
