Default Any Hand Wash 24/7 Spots In Queens/LI?

Hey guys im looking for a place to detail wash my car myself.

Anyone know of a spot where you can drive your car in and wash and wax it yourself?
Best would be a 247 spot so I can do this when Im wide awake at 3AM and cant sleep

Thanks

You mean I pull in and it pulls my car on rails and people are standing to hand wash it?

Not a fan of that.

Well, I guess they can be called Manual Car Wash. You insert like $3.00 or so and use Soap, Brush and Hose. Its a machine you park your car next to.

You do it yourself.

So technically we can sit there all day to wash our cars/detail or is that frowned upon?

I wanted to wash dry wax :X

You might notice someone else coming to wash theirs also. I would just wash, dry, and move to a better location where you won't feel pressured to finish.

I guess it depends on how busy it is, there a large area in the rear where you enter the wash bays, there was more cars there than in the wash bays
