That is a good one, wish I had a vacuum truck, it would make it a lot easier for all the dirt and sludge.

There is a bid request for the maintenance of the car washes also but I do not know how to work on them or have a truck with lift gate for supplying the locations with the soaps on a bi-weekly basis. I have cleaned them though until I got lowballed buy a guy that charges 1/2 of what I was doing them for and does a crappy job and leaves a mess when he leaves. O Well.

Thanks Ron.
