Winter car wash

Since it was a horrid -45 with the wind chill here I decided to wash my car in an underground parking lot lol. Took almost an hour just to dry the car off (frozen shut doors are pretty much the worst thing ever if you've never experienced it) Not the best pictures so I apologize but all I've got is my phone

how do you wash a car in underground parking ???

BTW
I know a guy that would go pay for underground parking in a public lot in winter so he would have a warmer than outdoor place to wrench on his car

i still would not be washing my car in under 0* weather lol... Might do it this weekend if there is a break in the weather. In the 40s today, which is insane to think the windchill on monday/tuesday was around -30

I washed my car today despite the call for rain. I had to get some of the gunk off my car.

That is a clean SVT. I don't think I would have washed my car with it being that cold unless it was going to parked in the warm for several days.

Nice car! I live in Michigan with tough winters but I'd rather wait a week for the temp change and hand wash or power spay. NEVER take an SVT through a drive through car wash!! Thats just wrong!
