soft top car wash

Has anybody ever tried to go through the car wash with their soft top? Haha seems like a bad idea.

I did it yesterday for the first time, and didn't have any problems other than it being loud. No big deal though.

it'll ruin the top eventually. It'll leak more too. The manual even says not to do it, lol can't believe I read it. Anywhoo our car wash here won't even let me in with the soft top on.
