    Lump. I hope things work out ok. With your knowlege of detailing. I think you would be a good mobile detailer as Rushy has mentioned. Maybe car dealerships could find you work, if you were freelance mobile detailing.

    Thanks for all the comment Guys, and sorry to say Ed no one is interested in quality. all dealership are using cheap labour, there are a few good guys who are there to put things right if it goes wrong. But there is NO money in valeting, Detailing unless your already a very experienced and up and running company. I have done a far bit of home work about it. Asked the right questions. I will just stick to doing it for ****s an giggles
    Sad day mate, BUT i have a very good feeling, and i think the silver lined cloud is heading my way. this may just be the kick up the ass i have needed. Time will tell.
