I would think a hand job in Frisco is the way to go.

I do it by hand. I'd be okay with going to one of the car wash stalls and washing it myself with their equipment, but I've got the time and supplies here at home, so why not?

Definitely hand job...er I mean wash. You never know what people scrub with those foaming brushes (tires, wheels, under carriages, etc) so they are like using sand paper on your paint . Nope, it's quality time in the garage for me and my car

I have a system that feeds the whole place. Filters and softens. He might be talking about mr. clean. I know they make one for the end of the hose.
