Absolutely gorgeous work, Phil. Tell me you remembered to take your towel off the plate before the owner drove off!

Not only am I amazed at the incredible work you guys do, I'm amazed that you guys can do this day in and day out. When I detail my own car for a day and a half (usually takes me 12 to 16 hours total and it comes out about 40% as good as your details) I need 3 days rest for my body to recover and I always tell myself that I'm giving it to a professional next time when I'm having trouble walking because of the pain. You guys must have Hercules muscles! Is it because you guys are young athletes and I'm an old man (48)? What's the secret to keep yourselves from being physically spent all the time? Is it technique? Really just being in shape? The right tools? You're just used to it? And even though real detail jobs (like you guys do) are hundreds of dollars (and worth every penny) I don't understand how you guys make enough money at this - especially given that you have more than one person on a car at a time. My hat's off to you guys...

BTW - that Turbo looks TWICE as good as showroom new. Awesome job, men!

^^^^ i think the secret is to have a team of detailers, not just one person doing everything.
