We tried PDR and went to Ding King training for it last year, around this time. We were able to practice a lot from November to January. Unfortunately and fortunately it got so busy at the shop that we didnt have time to do any PDR, afterwards. We have to go back to training for it. This year has been crazy for us. Just like you, it is now slowing down a bit. I am now training 3 interns for next year. We turned down so many customers. Our PPF and Vinyl are now getting very busy as well. I turned down every single Vinyl Wrap with a full color change because we were understaffed. Its about 2 cars per week for 6 months. We also just landed a gigantic job with our electronics department that will require 2 personnel 24/7/365. Basically its our 3rd year in business and It has been nuts compared to last year.
The Tesla giga factory is bringing in many people who are from out of town and people are now making more money per hour because of Tesla. It's hard to find a job that pays less than $14/hr. Even McDonalds pays $12 now.
