    Re: making real money polishing?

    you fellas as in us english? pmsl

    bobs your uncle lol lol

    yeah thats the one, just wondered if a wooden cabinet is gonna be good enough. Dont you have to have a extractor and light inside etc. SO you can see inside while your working.

    Just wondered if someone out there sells plans and a list of what you will need. I need to set up fairly quickly oncie i get this loan for the compressor etc so i wana start getting on with it all now

    or stripped parts alone.
    and what would you call making money ? this could be different for different people , if you are working your day job at 35 $ an hour weould be different
    than for someone working at 12 $ an hour

    Heya all

    Im from Sydney, Australia and i automotive metal polish full time.
    Show cars, hot rods, bikes, concourse cars etc etc
    Its do-able!!
    Most polishers in Australia are industrial polishers, some do a fair bit of automotive work, but i think i would be the only fulltime automotive dedicated polisher in Australia!!

    Mark!!
    PS: For the longer members of this forum, is it a good idea if i throw up some pics of my work under my own thread, or is that not a good idea?!?! Im a newbie on this forum as you can see

    Re: making real money polishing?

    do you polish wheels that are already polished, giving them a mirror-like finish?

    I guess I am just good at it, LOL I have been polishing for about 10 years so...

    I am based in Minnesota, I will do all your work if you can get it here...

    About the wheels, I would at least need a picure or something first cause I can't give an estimate without knowing what I need to do to it first! In other words, I need to see it before I can tell how much work it involves...
