Shine Time Auto Detail Will Be Set Up Washing Cars For The Show!!

Hello, my name is Tom Risk and I'm the owner of Shine Time Auto Detail www.shinetimedetail.com I will be set up at Wyndham Indianapolis West. The hotel has agreed to let me use their water and electricity.

I am charging $45 per vehicle. Here's what I am including for the $45--

1- All bugs are removed from the front bumper, hood, windshield, wiper arms and mirrors.

2- The wheels and tires are cleaned.

3- The vehicle will receive a foam bath(If my new gun arrives in time)- This helps in aiding the removal of dirt. The vehicle is washed with micro fiber mitts. We also use the 2 bucket wash method with grit guards. The 2 bucket method is 2- 5 gallon buckets, 1 is a rinse bucket and one is a soap bucket. Each bucket has grit guards in them to get the dirt off the mitts to reduce any swirls.

4- The vehicle will get a spray wax to enhance the wax that is on it or give the 'Just Waxed Look'.

5- The vehicle is towel dried with quality micro fiber drying towels.

6- Once the vehicle is dried the exterior windows are cleaned again to guarantee streak free windows.

7- The wheels are dried and the tires are dressed with tire dressing.

If you need to vacuum your interior you can use my vacuum for free.

I will be selling a solvent to remove road tar also- This will be $7 and it comes with a new micro fiber and one nitrile glove

If you want dressing I will have a water-based dressing that you can dilute in half to get a nice finish on your dash and panels or any trim on the exterior. This will also include one micro fiber towel and enough product to do 1-4 cars depending how much you use and if you dilute it. $6

We will be giving each person a ticket so if you want your car washed again it will only be $25.
Forum sign ups only
I am ONLY accepting cash as there will be too any people that we don't personally know.

If you want to pay with a credit card there is a $10 Credit card fee.

We will be set up around 4pm Thursday and will work till between mid night and 2am.
Friday we will be set up between 10am and noon and will work till between 8pm-midnight.
Saturday we will be setup till???

If you have any questions feel free to post them here or PM me. We will have our entire mobile set up so if you get in a bind we may be able to help you out.

Thanks and looking forward to meeting everyone!!

(Fully insured and trained)

EDITED!!

-I will be arriving Wed around 6pm and set up by 7pm I will work till when ever I need to. I will be set back up around 10am on Thursday and will work till midnight or later.

-Since I originally was going down on Thursday then switched I have had lots of people switching and I've lost track.

-I will be doing 5 cars per hour. This will leave me with 10-15 per hour to sell other products, to talk or possibly do another car. When we get a schedule I am asking that everyone show up 15-20 minutes early. If you do not show up at your scheduled time I will take a random person to take your place. So even if your not on the schedule show up 10 till and see if I have any openings. I will only sell extra products the last 5-15 minutes of every hour. I will post each day from now till wed morning of what availability I still have.

-AGAIN I need people to tell me what days and around what time you are aiming for. starting today 7-27 10:30 pm EST

-Also for guys that are interested I am going to have a product that fills/ hides swirl marks. This is a wipe on wipe off product. I'm not sure of what the price will be yet.

-I wanted to let you guys know I'll be putting together wash kits for people wanting to do their own cars. Things that will be included--

1- 5 gallon bucket
2-8oz of wash soap- Enough to do 2 5 gallon buckets if you want
3-8oz spray bottle of bug cleaner and a micro fiber to wipe the bugs off.
4-one micro fiber wash mitt
5-8oz of spray wax(spray this before you do your final rinse then rinse the vehicle) will do 2-4 small cars- about 1-2 squirts per panel
6-4oz of tire shine
7- 8oz of interior dressing.- Will do 2-4 cars
8- 5 micro fibers total
9- 8oz Wheel and tire cleaner- I will not be including a brush with this. I may have a brush that people can use if they'd like.

Price for the kit will be $40 Please let me know if you want one. I'll have some regardless.

EDITED AGAIN! 7-28
Clay bar treatment- $25 Not for 'heavily' contaminated cars.
Trucks are $15 Extra
Glaze to fill in/hide swirl marks, gives a show car finish- 8oz bottle with applicator and micro fiber.(Works better when vehicle has been clay bared) $20

I'm pretty sure Shine Time will be fine as "manual commercial car wash".

I'm bringing 2 guys right now and possibly a 3rd depending how many people want there cars done in this thread. My company has done 3 different employee appreciation days this year.(i offered. This same package) With only one other helper we were doing cars between 10-15 per car. Sounds quick and it is but with the right system it can be done. If I bring 2 other guys I'm hoping to get 6 per hour. With one other were getting around 25 done in 6 hours.

I will be checking in on this thread and if we start getting tons of people wanting there cars ill set up a schedule.

Sounds like the Junkman/Adams method. What if we have our own wash mitts? Very nice, I will likely take advantage too............
