The first thing is plenty of screwdrivers in various sizes. Nearly every computer and other electronic items have different kinds of screws that you will have to remove. I visited my local Wal-Mart and found an 18 piece screwdriver set on sale for $5.00. It works very well. I should have picked up several of them but I then went to my local Harbor Freight store and found another similar set for $5.00. It is good to have several on hand.
Second, "Time", I try to give myself all the time I need so as not to be rushed. This is extremely important. If you don't have enough time you will surely loose your focus, break a smooth routine and end with a bike half done. No doubt with an attitude that you wasted a great deal of time and you know your right you should have just jumped on that puppy and took off. Give yourself all the time you need and your whole world will turn easier. And when you do clean it your "good attitude" will go the distance. When you're done all that work will leave you with a sense that it wasn't so hard to do and doing it again won't be so bad. And don't forget to take breaks frequently, drink a little work a little, drink a little work a little you'll be amazed how quickly you get finished and how much better you'll feel.
They best part about this next phase is you get to sit down and paint the stones. The cardboard isn't all that uncomfortable, so the whole family can pitch in and help. I use one of those small foam bushes with soft little angled bristles. It is set on a curved handle with comfort in mind because painting this way with a standard brush would require you to post your wrists while painting to stay within the lines. By posting I mean setting your wrist down on a surface much like when you write with a pencil. but this is like moving a matchbox car with a tight turn radius around the rock patterns we scribed earlier. Another plus of this curved handle is it allows you to dip the brush directly into the paint can to wet the foam pad. This eliminates the pouring of paint into other smaller containers which wastes paint.
Now that you have the place and the tools you will need to get some electronics to tear down. There are several different ways to approach this so we will review them below. One of the most powerful tools that I have found is a simple form letter that is sent to various companies in my area. I sat down with my wife and created this letter outlining what our company does and how it would benefit the companies that we were contacting. The response is simply amazing.
Oh it must be more than a couple decades now, but I can remember dealing with an independent contractor in my auto detailing business in Santa Barbara. He told me that he bought a very quiet generator, a Honda model, top of the line. He told me that he wanted one powerful enough to run a 5-hp vacuum, his buffers, lights, and a 1500 psi, 2.5 gallon per minute pressure washer all at the same time. I asked him why.
One piece of advice is to make your service FREE. All you have to do is run down what you do, which is e-cycling and tell them that you will pick up all the items that they have for free. There are some large companies that provide this kind of service but they are charging for the service and making it free is far more attractive.
