    [TD="class: alt1, bgcolor: #FFFFFF"]So my neighbor gave my business card to a friend of hers and the husband owns a company that details private Jets. He contacted me about detailing the owners of the jets cars when they park them in their private hangers. We also talked about me helping detailing the jets part time and maybe if things work out Might even merge together. We meet Tuesday to talk more about the arrangement and I will be helping them on my first plane.

    Awesome! That's why you give your cards to everyone. You don't know who they know.

    Planes are a blast to detail! Just be careful of the small openings on the fuselage and the boots or TKS on the leading edge of the wings. Have fun!

    Congrats on the new work opportunity !

    Done many, always come out really tired, and the airplane is stunning ! :)

    Poster above referenced Pitot tubes, and yes, they are very delicate, as is the boots on the wings, and any electronic device antenna/s... etc...

    Also, be mindful of the Plexiglass, very fragile, some Owners don't even want you to touch it.. Having to look through fine scratches in your cockpit in the sun at altitude is very bad...

    You need tall ladders or scaffolding to get up to the top the tail section of must normal sized single/double engined airplanes and to get to the top center of the cockpit/fuselage areas of the same aircraft..

    You have to double the wingspan of the aircraft to calculate how much time you are going to be correcting as airplanes have a top side of the wing and a bottom side of the same wing... Your triceps are going to either be very happy or very unhappy when you are done polishing the bottom side of airplane wings.. :)

    The boots are treated with other chemicals usually, the Owners should know but if they dont, ask any of the Plane detailers out there what is "approved" chemicals to be used on these boots...

    Some aircraft leak oil that runs a trail down the bottom center or around there of the fuselage on the back side of the engine compartment... You have to be able to clean this up and polish it if requested...

    I have had great success with Lake Country Purple Foam pads in all sizes with meguiars 105/205...

    As you have probably already found out, or will find out, Airplane paint is hard as rock, and doesnt necessarily correct as nicely as any motor vehicle, especially the tops of the wings and fuselage behind the cockpit glass...

    Aircraft rivets will tear up pads pretty easily so watch them and be gentle..

    Absolutely do not hit the pitot tubes or any electronic devices with a buffer and if you do be sure to tell the Pilot/Owner, so he can test and be sure his instruments are ok..

    Prepare to buy pads by the caseload ! :)

    Good luck !

    Thanks Dan the company I'm help has been doing planes for about 5 years and they only do planes they are all certified so they are teaching me everything. Its a whole different world the last plane we did Thursday took us 17 hours straight to get done. The products they use are total different they have to be anti static.
