Went through a touchless wash today.

Couple thoughts:

1. The hard water pressure around the windows sprung a leak. Didn't notice it until I felt my sleeve soaking. Nothing terrible and I doubt it would've happened in a normal rain.
2. Underbody wash seemed to work well if you drive in slowly.
3. Overall, very clean car now.

One question for all you carwash experts: the air dry blowers felt like they were going to RIP OFF the canvas top. Does this need to be a concern or do those pressure blowers not hurt the top at all?

It felt like I was driving through the reincarnation of Katrina.

Here's a tip for those owners who are fortunate enough to be able to wash inside their own garage. I was concerned after I bought the F150 stable mate last fall. How was I going to wash it and keep it clean without splashing the Solstice?

Picked up a "fan" spray head. Lets you flood the vehicle being washed without splattering all over the other car (or cabinets, or walls, etc.)



I actually use this now for even washing outside. I prefer it's ability to flood the section to be rinsed. Still use the "jet" type nozzle for wheel wells, etc.

2007 2.4L N/A. Stock + some pretty crap.
