The Best Car Wash in town....

Recommended Posts

Goes to ???

I know that I was impressed by Hamline Auto's carwash on Broadway and Hwy 280, but yesterday I got a carwash on 35e and Diffley in eagan, and it was Great....

But where can I get the best ultimate, preferrably touchless, carwash?

IMO touchless sucks unless its a newly painted or barely dirty vehicle. I always go to misters cant beat there wash and hand dry, or the fact that i have coupons for 50% of there $15 best wash.

Touchless is a maintenance wash. It is intended to use in between hand wash/waxes. If your not taking care of your paint than touchless will not work for you.

this is going to sound like a plug for holiday but it is not. The Oakdale Holiday has a pretty good touchless and I usually try to make it to this one. I have heard really good reviews about car wash at the new Holiday on 80th in cottage grove. The Shoreview Exxon has a pretty impressive tunnel wash also.

I am not a big van of velvet grit (brush) washes!

I go out of my way to go to any Holiday that has the soft cloth wash. The difference between that and a touchless is amazing. Plus some of them have an attendant that does a high pressure prewash and provides you with an interior wipe to clean the inside while the outside is getting washed. All for about 8 or 9 dollars.

I like the cheap Fleet Farm touchless carwash, $5 wash including underbody with gas purchase.

During the warmer months I'll run it thru the FF carwash, then head home and hand wash it.

No chance I'm hitting any carwash that isn't a touchless, my black truck shows the slightest of swirl marks, so I'm the only one who touches it.

I go to Bolers in St. Paul. $12 and it's pre-washed, ran through a wash, hand dried, windows cleaned, vacuumed, the works. Can't beat it.

I hit the Oakdale touchless a lot as well in the winter. Does a gppd job but touchles is what it is... will never be as clean as if it were hand mopped but still always looks a lot better coming out than it did going in. The touchless at the top of the hill here in Hooterville (Lonsdale) is a good one as well. Freds has discount tickets for it as well. Take care and N Joy the Hunt././jimbo

    • Used the impulse mayflys today, the fish were not biting well. I ended up catching a few nice gills on the mayflys but more fish with  the demon/ waxie combo. I want to try some lighter line with the horizontal jig /impulse mayfly and see what happens. Maybe 5 years ago I moved away from winter panfish fishing. I am so glad I am back catching panfish, a very enjoyable way to pass a winter morning!
    • 13 years ago I had my heart set on a Lund, I went with an Alumacraft because I could rig it out nicer with the money I was allotted by my better half at the time..........no regrets.
    • Ive owned 7 Lunds and don't see another one in the future.  Also been looking at the A-crafts.  The 205 trophy.  Have a 13' Lund Tyee 1800 now.  Good boat but its too light for big water.  Really like the fit and finish of the Aluma's.  The black windshield trim is sharp and the carpet on the top of the gunwale is also nice.  Really impressed.  Not gonna take out a mortgage to buy a glass boat either.
    • I’ve never done anything with mine. I store it standing up and in the fall change the oil if I remember. Haven’t had any issues yet. 
    • I had problems with my 02. I found that the plug on the truck side going to the plug at the bumper was corroded. I hope that made sense I cleaned it up and put dielectric grease on it.    
    • I would put some Seafoam in the ga.........................  oh never mind. 😁
    • I rode the trails around big lake today, mostly to get used to the new trails. trails were awesome, they must have groomed last night, rode to becker and back and some other playing around. all in all I put on 42 miles today. I will ride into the orrock area tomorrow. don't ride that much around here anymore, mostly aitkin co. now. looks like the trails around the sand dunes look good, I will give it a shot tomorrow.
    • I'm guessing not much. I know the one pounders threads can start to rust in a humid environment, but am not sure if that would be an issue if still attached? I know nothing about propane augers,  is there an oil tank to keep the engine lubed? And if so, does it need to be refreshed or drained every once in a while? It's not like you need to worry about bad gas gumming up the system.   Mostly,  I'm just replying to give you something to read TJ. Hopefully somebody else will chime in with more knowledge.  
    • Possibility of moisture getting into them after washing the stove top and around the burners? My wife is good at that.
    • I get it, like the woman in the commercial. You are clever.
