    This must have a story behind it?

    There is an Octopus car wash on Colfax in Lakewood. I think they do full service washes if that is what you need.

    But we want photos. If it's worth posting, it's worth photographing.

    Go to one of those self-service car wash places. The water pressure is pretty good to get the gunk off the bottom. I do it all the time with my Jeep.

    I don't even know what a full service car wash is, but my goal is to have the underside of my car scoured. Laying under my car with a garden hose isn't an option.

    I need this situation rectified before I go get my oil changed.

    This might be a job for the mob.

    If you have a hunters license, you can legally claim the carcass.

    Funny story, my uncle actually claims deer and moose carcasses (he's some deal with the highway patrol) and uses the remnants to make recurve archery accouterments. After he's processed the non-bruised meat.

    So yes, I've had venison roadkill jerky.

    Mmm... road kill (I think). If not (and it's human), you better use bleach so they can't trace it.

    Seriously though, A full-service car wash is one where you actually get out of your car and they take it through. Not all of them have undercarriage washers though. Even if they do, it's usually a side spray anyway. I use Golden Truck and RV wash on 93 (self served - by the self-storage place). Their sprayers are very high pressure It cleans pretty good without having to crawl under.

    Is the blood only on the back of the car? If so I don't see why the grease monkeys would mind. They don't need to get under your trunk to strip the threads on your oil pan and put transmission fluid in your engine.

    I use these guys on 6th and Heritage near the Taj.

    They're close to my work and the drive thru system works pretty well with undercarriage.
    The owner is also a total Saab nut and likely to hand out goodies if you show up with one.

    Ok, now I'm curious....

    How did you even discover the need to scour the undercarriage of your car? I mean, I've had my truck for 5 years and I don't think I have ever LOOKED at the undercarriage to see what was there. Actually, looking at yours, I'm thinking I don't ever WANT to look under mine.....could be REALLY sketchy!

    Judging by the photo there must have been a significant thump involved!

    Your children will be safer with one less pesky chupacabra cluttering up the Front Range.

    Oh, Silverstreak wins for suggesting a place that won't require bike rack removal. Thanks to all the participating contestants.

    Heh, I've used the laser guided 'Best' wash with mixed results vs. the bike rack. Two times it recognized it, two times it didn't. It bumps the rack (without damage), then automatically goes into the far setting. It is good that you have the option though.

    Get some wheel ramps at the auto parts store and take them with you to a self-service place.

    You could also use cinderblocks, large rocks, abandoned children from Nebraska, or your spare tire.

    That too. Blood is actually much more pleasant than the other types of fluids you mights find under a car.

    After ten minutes of driving my car smells like a slaughterhouse floor in August. I'd like for the chupacaba jerky plastered under my car to go the eff away.
