I do too...
especially when we get a nice thunder storm and I run out and start washing vehicles in the rain.
It's a spot free rinse, then I don't have to dry them

Especially since you can never seem to decide what seat covers to have in your Jeep, always taking them off and putting different ones on, then mailing them out...how odd.

Hmm washing it with the top down would sure save a lot of work of having to put the top UP just to wash it, why didn't I think of this!?

Yes, I'm sure they wonder what I'm doing most of the time.... Good to keep them guessing tho'

Well, don't be too hard on yourself firehawk, obviously this is your first convertible.... I learned a long time ago how to keep from spraying the insides of less water friendly vehicles when washing them with the top down.... But then too, not too hard to just mash a button to get the top up for a quick bath either.... Kinda wish Jeeps were like that, it would be much more convenient... I know, it's not supposed to be convenient, but I don't mind the zipper windows or the lack of other niceties in my Wrangler, but a push button top would be perfect

I love it, I just keep most of the spray away from the dash and seats. Gotta rinse the floorboards once in a while.

Funny you should say this. Took it wheelin' for the first time today, and ended
up rinsing off most the mud at the car wash. Haha, al l done topless of course! Had her burried up to the tops of the tires and still came out without any mud on the interior. I'll have the pics to prove it in a diff thread. :P

I get weird looks from my neighbors just for having a Jeep here in Taiwan.
They wonder why would I get my car so dirty Ha ha ha

We are a dying bread here.

The good thing though is that they charge me 6$us to wash the entire Jeep after I went off road. They give me a discount because the top is off and they don't have to wash it.
