Hi Andy

I'm 44. Most of the time feel around 84 lol. Wrecked knees, wrecked back etc from playing sport, but I still love keeping our cars clean. Hopefully that continues for many years to come.

I’m 36 and pretty much as cooks with the knees, although currently don’t have any back issues thankfully.

46, cleans the chauffeur e-class nearly everyday. Fed up with mucky clients treating the car like a dustbin, hence everyday cleaning! Honestly makes you wonder what their homes are like!

Dodgy knees due to cleaning the alloys everyday, short, so find it difficult to reach the roof, half the time need a stool.

And yes, you did read that right, it gets cleaned practically every day!

Although, near constant 15-17hr day, and constant hospital appointments due to other issues are starting to take it’s toll on the poor e-class.

Doesn’t stop my buying more detailing products thou!

40 here, kinda new to detailing but I've always looked after everything I've owned, detailing and my OCD seem to go together very well! I'm sitting in front of the PC enjoying DW on a Friday night rather than down the pub. It's so noisy down there....

My hair is 72 but I am a young 52.....starting to get aches and pains in the joints, and have back issues with lifting people all the time but it doesn't put me off keeping the cars clean, great stress relief.
