Automatic Carwash!

I gots a strange one for y'all: Do you all think the high rise wing on the SS will be fine going through the auto wash? The ones without the brushes, that is.

Sweeeet! It's getting to be too cold to do it myself. I can also get a good underbody spray with the auto.

I DEFINITELY won't use the one with brushes. It's a safe bet I'll come out of that wingless lol

I would rather take steel wool to my car than drive through a car wash that uses brushes lol.

but yeah the touchless car wash will be fine with the wing. I go through the touchless in the winter when I can't wash my car by hand.

I feel like the auto with brushes are fine. Constant water on them, they never touch the ground so no little rocks or anything get into them. And the mikes car wash ones make my car cleaner looking and any other car wash

The brushes at do it yourself is a different story

It's not just pouring soap ad water on haha. That's why the brushes are for.

Just saying. Mikes car wash makes my car look brand new. Only problem is its a pull through with a wheel track. Have to be extremely careful getting into the track if you have nice wheels
