I did it only one time and never went back but I take my Bronco to the car wash with the wands, spray it down really good then use the microfiber towels to clean and dry it off. It works for me.Okay I am new to the soft top world. My truck is full of rock salt and disgustingly dirty (I am in NJ). What’s the protocol for car washes? I’d love to baby it with a gentle hand washing but not in the middle of winter with temps below 20 degrees outside. TIA!
