Automatic Car Washes

Postby Lanky » Sun Jul 15, 2018 4:22 pm

Strange topic but I was hoping to hear if anyone has experience going through an automatic car wash with their rigs. Recently moved deep into the city and common access to a hose bib has become impossible. Even a self-service is far enough away to be difficult.
I was planning on removing the rack and window visors before attempting it.

Automatic Car Washes

My only advice here is to avoid the kind with the rollers that go up and over the windscreen and roof- they don't see the passenger side mirror on JDM 4WDs, and attempt to scrape it off the A-pillar. It's not fun to watch.
Nothing says "poor workmanship" more than wrinkles in the duct tape.

Automatic Car Washes

I found the automatic car washes don't do a good job on vans; They're designed for sedans. I feel like I spent eight bucks and still need to wash my van.

I bought a truck brush and a bucket, for when I can't find a truck wash.
