In need of a good hand wash in NJ

i've tried two different hand car washes near me, but they both let me down. They always miss drying the running boards or just do a mediocre job. Do you know of any good hand wash places in NJ?

Don't be so lazy... go to the store, invest in some high end automotive soap, a bucket, a sponge, tire/rim cleaner and a chamois. Then go at it!, its part of the fun of owning a automobile like this, it may suck doing it but when you stand back and look at it after its well worth it ! Then you can't complain about anyone doing a crap job.

well here in NJ, it's about 36 degrees F and i don't know about you, but i'm not up to washing my car in the cold. I've washed my car myself back in the fall but with temperatures like they are, i won't be washing it in this weather.

Don't know where in NJ you are but if you don't mind coming to NYC, there's a hand car washing place call "Beverly Hills Hand Car Wash" in Astoria, Queens. Its on the corner of 71 st. and Astoria Blvd. They do a great job.

Youll STILL enjoy it! Seriously! I wash my car every Saturday and it is in the high 20's here. No problem..And in the states, you guys can invest in nice water heaters from what I hear...We havent caught up with with that technology yet ....But honestly, NO "business" will ever treat your car like you will when it comes to detailing....

How about "In Need of a Good Hand Job in NJ"? I bet this post would have 20+ responses!

My solution for washing the X in 20 degree weather was having hot and cold water "spicket" as they call them down here in the south, installed.
