View Full Version : No DRY-LABBING here!

Thanks Don, for the new term.

I had to do a cross country trip to visit family, and decided to see what could happen with my headlight cleaning bizop in a new location.

Small town in Alabama, 8,397 population according to the last census.

I walked in the permit office at 10am, and by 10:30 and $40 lighter, I had a free spot to park and hang out my banners. Thanks Brother Mimms, for your kindness and generosity.

Ten minutes after getting set up, I had my permit paid off. I was able to use the spot for a few hours a day over the course of six days. Made $640 total, so that paid for my permit and the gas for my trip.

Also during that time I worked out a new way of cleaning headlights. I now offer the quicky clean for $10, and it takes me less than two minutes to clear up a pair of headlights. I will describe the new method in the updated manual, which all my customers will get as an update. Coming soon, from the WET-LAB.
