Laid off in MI

Let me start this by saying bernie or any other mods, I am sorry for this is if goes against rules but since I am not an LLC I wanted to see I could go through with this, or maybe have it up for only a day. As everyone knows its tough everywhere, back in December I got laid off at my job doing detailing for the Ferrari dealership here in Michigan as they closed their doors. Giving one days notice to many people who had been there for over 20 years. Since then I have bounced to a few jobs but they have either lied to me about literally every aspect of the job or offered me less money than we agreed to after starting. The current job offered me 45 hours for sure, and the last two days they told me they didn't have enough cars for me to come in, literally had 15 hours of work this week.. Knowing very well I cannot survive off of that and not wanting to rely on others for the rest of my life I have decided to go back to school and finish my degree up that I started at Michigan State. I need to first give a semester at a GRCC to get accepted back so for now I need to find a supplemental income (my mother has agreed to help me in school ways a little). As I loved every interaction with everyone on our cherokeesrt8 community I know there may be a few people that may be able to help me while I can offer them a quality service. And with that is brings me to the point of me starting this thread:

I have experience doing paint corrections on high end vehicles and am very skilled in that aspect, also with wet-sanding scratches and such. I put alot of my own money into my product while I worked on the Ferrari's never thinking I'd be let go so abruptly (1,000's), so I know what I am doing as the learning curve on a car panel that costs over $15k makes you get very good at what you do. I don't meant to boast but I wouldn't offer this if I didn't think it was worth someone elses' hard earned money. I know I cannot live on this money forever but I was hoping a few guys may need work done on their jeeps, and winter is a great time too because alot of guys let them sit over winter and aren't driving the beast anyways. Even if you don't need my service it would be greatly appreciated if you could pass my information on to them as any work would be better than my current job income..

I can come to your house so you don't need to do anything but let me and and let me go to work. This will allow you to do what you need to do while not worrying where or who is driving your car or messing around with it.

All I need to do my work is:
-A garage (heat not necessary, I have lots of lights I will be bringing, produce good heat)
-Multiple electrical outlets
-Water connection (not necessary)

I am not asking nearly what other detailers charge for this quality of work for obvious reasons, most detailers charge near starting at $700 for this work. For a single stage I would start at a mere $250, and a multi-stage starting at $350. I also can do semi-permanent coatings which can last for up to 24 months, great for wheels and preventing excessive brake dust. Most people will find a multi-stage is where the will want to go, and at least permanent coat their wheels.

This is a website I made for family as I did work for them back a while, **I am not an LLC, this is not an advertisement**.

http://wyliemobileautodetail.weebly.com/

It will let you know what I am all about and give you background and pictures of what I am capable of doing. I know very well this thread may be deleted but I hope at least a few people can see it and pass my name out or need my service. Again I'm sorry bernie but I know all the great things our community does for people and that I have seen on here with my own eyes, even if you leave it up for a few days before deleting it that would be a great help. Thank you everyone and hope you all have a great weekend!

Damn man that sucks. Hopefully everything works out for you

I plan on going to visit a buddy of mine in Milford in the next few weeks. I want my front bumper looked at so maybe we can work something out. Where in Michigan are you?

Thanks guys, Im really trying to see the positive side in this and with a community like we have it makes it much easier. Id totally do it if I somehow came by VA man no doubt, and if I somehow end up there I will for sure contact you Semper. And Dan I can come in most any areas of Michigan if someone needs work done. I am currently in Grand Rapids but come home to Brighton near Ann Arbor every other weekend, and again if someone needs service I am not going to deny work.

Laid off in MI

How long would you need to get this done? If this is something you can do over the weekend, I might be interested. PM your number. I'm in Chicago but my sis live in MI. Maybe we can set something up. I'm always game to help out a State Fan.

Good decision to go back to school. That is an investment that will pay off literally for the rest of your life. Wish you were local to me (I'm in NJ) I would have you do my 3 cars this weekend! Best of luck.

Hey, well matter what you want done, if you'd like a multistage, which I would recommend it would take me day and half really cause I'd wanna do it correctly. But single stage I'd be good with a day 8-6 or so and should have it tip top. Thanks alot man, MSU support is always good in my book, even though dont tell anyone I went to UofM games since I was about 5, 50 yrd line seats and got to slap hands with players since I was little. House divided when I'm home haha. Thanks again!

Thanks alot, it's not gunna be easy but with 2 doctors in my family, and a few masters I realize the road isnt easy but in the end I will regret it if I dont finish what I set out to do in the first place. Since I have this skill I am going to do anything I can to get back through school and get to where I want to be. Wish I was closer too man, I'd be down right away. Thanks for the encouragement, means alot from the family here on our community! have a great weekend man!

Anybody else in Michigan need some work done? I know we got a few guys here.. Im barely gunna get 15 hours a week for like 3 months here so any detail work anyone needs would be better than being here. This is really a prime time for a garage queen to get cleaned up as well as the DD, the queen will be prime and ready come spring when its time to unwrap it. I know alot of guys have doubts too cause in the "old days" burning paint was almost inevitable and today that is true too, but only with it in the hand of a inexperienced person. As I have spend every day on high end vehicles I am very much not a "noob" anymore, and appreciate each vehicle as what it is for its owner. I have experience with single stage paint too if anyone has wondered about that, multiple Testarossas came in during my time with Ferrari and all with single stage.

Also I thought maybe if there is a group of guys that need something done, like the chicago guys maybe I can get a group of maybe 4-5 guys who can be down for sure and I can find a week I can stay with a friend of something in Chicago and get each one done for a week, that would be amazing and help me more than anyone could think at this point.

PM me if anyone has been thinking it over but has any serious questions about jumping in on it, I know its a seemingly expensive service but really in the life of your vehicle what I am charging is not a lot if spread out over your whole ownership. Anyone thats had their car done can be witness to this on here and you are welcome to chime in.

Thank you again to everyone on this community, glad I have had an opportunity to meet genuinely nice people on here, and hope to keep meeting more. Have a great weekend everyone!
