I知 back... and trying my hardest to stay!

Afternoon all,

A long time member, returning...

I lost a lot of enthusiasm for detailing a few years back and completely stopped.
I put all detailing gear in boxes and took my taxi to the dreaded hand car wash for 3 years!
Those of you on here that know me via the forum, will know that I had probably hit the lowest I could ever go!

It’s funny now, but over the last 12 months, I’ve been buying detailing stuff as a way of convincing myself that I’d get back into it... little did I realise, I was buying loads of the same stuff and I was still buying bulk items like I was still cleaning my own car like I used to.

That’ll be why I’ve got the For Sale thread on the go.


Anyway, I’ve come back to the Newbie section as there are so many new names on the forum and there will be plenty that have never seen a post I’ve written or been a part of.

When I had my wife helping me with the Zafira..

Tapatalk will show the photos on these threads

All the way to getting married
https://www.detailingworld.co.uk/for...=364089&page=4

Funnily enough, it was shortly after getting married that I disappeared from the forum
I started a new job straight after getting married and although it was very well paid and allowed us as a family to do a lot more, it was ultra stressful and eventually took its toll.

So, Hello to all of those that have arrived since 2016 and I’ll be on the forum again from now on

All the best

Karlos

Welcome back mate. Just started revisiting myself after a 3 year absence due to a house move and 2+ years of DIY most weekends

A new car brought me back
