I can’t find a self serve car wash for miles near me, it’s all the wow car washes around here.
Not sure where in Vegas you live but I go to Oasis Auto Spa off Serene and Eastern, kinda hidden in the back lot but it's a nice place and a bunch of bays always open. Those WOW's are convenient but once I learned how horrible auto-touch washes are I stopped going. More satisfying to wash it myself too

Yeah, far southwest part of the valley.

I’ve taken to rinse less washes myself, with the occasional full mobile detail service.

Looks great! I might have missed it but what did you do for suspension?

VIOFO A229+ going in tonight or tomorrow, hardwire kit comes in tomorrow via Amazon but if I don't have plans tonight might just get most of the work done so I only have to do the hardwiring tomorrow.

Itching to get BadgeSkins back on the car. Think I want Matte Black and Red Emblem to match the red stripe in the grille. Wish they had a GFG color match but I think the red will look nice. Might Plastidip the rear emblem black and get the Red Inlays to match the front. Will post pics of the install process of the camera and if I have balls enough to do the plastidip I'll post those up too.

Ok. Wiper took an hour and a half to get off. The little bit or whatever was rusted to the motors bolt. Took a lot of hammering, WD-40, and crying. Wiper deleted. Camera will have to wait, can only sweat and scream in 110 degree weather for so long 😂
