I made the mistake of going thru a car-wash facility lately. I'm ok with the occasional brushless wash when the temps warm up here in WI above freezing because it's the easiest way to get the salt off your car, especially if one takes advantage of the undercarriage blaster. The wash part was fine, but the doggone plutonium-powered hairdryer almost ripped the plastic hood protector right off the car!
User beware! :8:
Now I have to figure out how I'm going to re-adhere the driver's side.
