    just picked up my 2nd customer today and another recently . The had a windie that did a sloppy work with the wfp. Of course they had been sceptic now , but i told Them that its a matter of practice and good frame cleaning that makes the difference .
    Do you guys picks up from sloppy wfp,ers?

    I've picked up a few as they had tried WFP and weren't sold on it , they prefer the traditional method.( they are older customers).

    I started traditional and have only had a backpack and pole for a couple of weeks, but they are still reluctant after previous experiences.
    Over time I will try and convert them!

    Seem to be getting more and more people approaching and asking 'oh is that the method that does the frames as well?' Then asking for a quotation, which is a pain as I don't want any more

    No need to convert them over time
    I just started cleaning them wfp when i made the switch
    If anyone was in i would say "i know it seems weird leaving the glass wet but it's pure water..blah blah..if you get any marks on the glass from where i have washed all the dirt out from above and round your frames give me a shout and I'll go over it when I'm passing"
    As i do all first cleans with virosol which strips all the muck and soap out of the rubbers etc i get no spotting and no phone calls
    They are so happy with the results no need to say anything else
    The ones who aren't in if they happen to be home 1 day and say anything i just say I've been doing it like this for ages
    I have 1 old lady who won't have it but i knew that when i took her on but everyone else is wfp with no problems
