    Hello David,

    Advice about starting up, well, you say you've owned your own business before, you'll know it takes hard work, both to gain the customers and then to maintain a level of quality in your work to keep them, so be specific about how we can help and I along with everyone else here will help if we can.

    Welcome to the forum pal :)

    Don't try to be fast, maximum attention to detail and check your work from different angles. You will get quicker naturally and people watching you will be impressed and want your services.
    Just my thoughts for what its with. Best if luck.
    Oh yeah, and stay off my patch ;-)
