Arrow Should i go into detailing?

Well as you all my know my names Jordan and i love cleaning and detailing cars in my spare time, also i have made a thread called What car care products do you use? It has come to a point where i don't know if i could make it a job or not. Nothing else really interest's me and i want to get some feed back from you guy's and gal's here.

So my dad's thinking i should go the route to detailing car's. If i think about it, its something that i have always liked doing and made me feel really good about. My family recently purchased a storage building that we have used to store other people's boats, and my dad said that all i would really need are the materials and customers. As of right now im reading up on some material about detailing. Since i already have a heated area with drains and a water hose. What would you guy's think about this? Options?

I came up with some numbers i need to compete with other place so the prices are ball parked. Input is welcome.
I changed the pricing.

HAND WASH AND DRY
CLEAN WHEEL WELLS
CLEAN WHEELS AND TIRES

i would do it. i used to work at a detail shop before i moved and i loved it! detailers make good money. full details at the shop were about 200-300 bucks. it brings great satisfaction when you look at a car filthy as can be and you go in detail it and it looks like new. and you can go beyond just detailing cars. i recently took a job detailing a PLANE.and i made 300 bucks in 3 days.. thats 100 bucks a day. if you really enjoy it like i do, i would get into it. many car washes do detailing as well. you can check them out. i know theres all kinds of detail shops here in florida. so i would say go for it!

90% is the best bud discount. You can have 89% off.

Come to think of it, Jordan, I'll manage your business. I need 80% of your profits for... business stuff...
