No sure how they get to Colorado but from pictures I’ve seen looks like on back of wagon train. Conversely, deliveries here on east coast appear somewhat “cleaner”.
I enjoy the cleaning process so hope for a day with temps above 60. Thanks to guidance from others on this site decided to have dealer remove protective film so paint can be examined but not wash or do any exterior work. Will keep in garage until I can work on it.
How do you like speedster mitt?
Thanks for your your feedback.
