It's on St Nicholas going towards the Harlem River Drive Northbound. Intersection St Nicholas and W155th street. But you have to drive towards the Harlem River Drive. Is a white van.

Re: Washing Your Jeep

Optimum No Rinse is great. I first used to use it when I lived in an apartment. I still use it at my house because I can wash the car in the garage, it's quicker than the hose/bucket method and safer.

ONR is a great product and is a far better alternative to "touchless wash". Touchless washes use harsch chemicals that will remove most waxes. They also don't remove most of the dirt. They remove larger pieces, but always leave a film and a trace of dirt behind. Take any white car through a touchless and you'll see the film that isn't removed from the paint. Then you're going to dry it with a mf towel and rub that dirt all over your paint? Not good.

The easiest way to keep the car in great shape is use the ONR and then spray it down with optimum's spray wax or their opti-seal. I don't work for optimum, but the way I push their products, I should. It is by far the best car care stuff I've used and the easiest to apply.

Re: Washing Your Jeep

I agree the touchless carwash does not get your vehicle clean. I would never take my nice vehicles through the carwashes that do not have someone working at them monitoring the cars that go through the wash. Those are the places I always took my vehicles after going off road and getting really muddy to get the big mud off that way the other carwash would let me go through. I take mine through a local car wash place called Mike's carwash at least once a week and sometimes even twice a week. My jeep is black and I have never noticed any scratches in the paint. I have done some research on them and they do not use any brushes in the wash. They actually use all cloth. They will not let really muddy vehicles go through nor will they let people have stuff in truck beds so that mud and rocks will not get in there cloth and scratch other vehicles. From what I have seen they have locations in Indiana and Ohio I believe. I do not travel out of state much but I would assume there are other places like this in other states.

Re: Washing Your Jeep

Bump. Thanks for the info on the ONR - I think I'm gonna pick some of that up. Looks like it is online only (not at Autozone, etc)? Is there a kit online to buy the 2 bucket + chamois + ONR etc ?

Next question - what do you guys use for your interiors? I want something to just wipe everything down and won't leave a sticky residue or anything. Whatever they "detailed" my Jeep with at the dealership when I bought it... I could feel it for at least a few days afterwards - did not like that.

Re: Washing Your Jeep

for the interior I use 303 Aerospace protectant. It cleans and protects the surface and doesnt leave that greasy feel to me. I also use it on all the black plastic trim around the car to give it a nice black look.

Re: Washing Your Jeep

I just recently tried ecotouch dashboard protectent and their leather conditioner.

It seemed to work pretty well on the dash and I noticed the leather seats definitely got softer. Plus no bad environment chems.

Re: Washing Your Jeep

I have used automated car washes quite a few times since picking up my Overland. I also live in a condo with no access to a hose and water. Only issue with scratches so far is from the guy who uses that brush to scrub the back of your car before going through. I will be sure to tell the guy not to in the future.

If i have the time I will go to my parents house about 10 minutes away and wash/clay/seal there every few months. The benefit of Stone White is that it hides scratches extremely well and I just touch up with spray sealant as needed.
