Only handwash cars wih stripes?

How do stripes hold up using car washes? ions Any Suggest


The Silent Majority always get slaughtered! It's always the small minority radicals that impose their will on the majority who don't speak up!
Americans have nothing to apologize for except for letting progressives force their will on the majority. :run_over:

I recommend hand wash only - It's the best way to stay intimate with your baby.

I've only handwashed my car, with or without stripes. It saves a couple bucks, and i feel like i do a better and more gentle job anyway.

If your nervous of taking it through a carwash, don't do it then. Ill hand wash her over an auto carwash any day.

Really got to say that I would never put my mustang through an automatic car wash. I enjoy cleaning her by hand too much.

What about the long wet cold winters here in the great NW? It's often too darn cold to wash your own car.
