Agreed. To me going through a car wash is akin to using sandpaper on your paint.

Any more pics of the yellow one?


Sure, just some minor repairs happening on it - it’s been my ‘work from home project’ for the week.
There are 6 more Gs at my shop getting major items tackled.

I made my own frame tube repair pieces, I have more of these available for the G community if anybody needs them.

This reminds me of another current G project, built by Luke @Dpuk he decided to save $40 and not buy the MBZ frame bracket(Where did the original one go?).
