The Let'Er Buck Car Wash at 624 E. Brundage Lane in Sheridan opened its doors to the public on Saturday - and from 7:30 am to 6:30 pm it was free $12 washes at the clip of 105 per hour - to all. After turning south off Brundage Lane you make a long sweeping U-turn up to one of two dropped cross arms. Here on a normal day you would select one of the three Lustra Washes - the Cloud Peak Extreme, the Black Tooth Deluxe or The Powder River Basic - pay and then proceed when the cross arm raises. From here you enter the wash building from the south where you put your vehicle in neutral, take your feet off the pedals, hands off the steering wheel and with your antenna lowered and your wipers off the conveyor takes over and moves your vehicle from dirty to clean in a matter of a minute or so. As you approach the north end a yellow light will have you WAIT until a green light says GO. From there you drive off in a clean vehicle. Soon the always free vacuum system by Sheridan's very own Vacutech manufacturing plant will be fully installed and operational for a before or after wash interior cleanup.

The entry point to the car wash is between the Let'Er Buckl sign and the clean pickup just pulling out
On opening day all vehicles were treated to the top menu board selection - A Cloud Peak Extreme, except the free "Vacs" were not yet in service.
If you're this happy going in you'll be even happier when you exit in a clean vehicle
Co-owner Mark Law on the left overseas what would normally be the payment collection area
Cody was on hand today to help familiarize folks with the proceedure
Once you are in position all you have to do is listed on the sign to the left
Then once the green light pops on you are on your way pulled by the conveyor
Inside the whirling brushes and sprays do their thing
Next up the moving "hanging scrubbers" do their part
Check out how the wheel cleaner sprays and follows the moving tires
Now that is a lot of spray
You can also wash pickups, including extended cab models - sorry no dually trucks
So much spray you can't see the next vehicle
Another clean truck appears - Note: if you have an extended hitch it helps to remove it - the rotary brushes can get closer to the tailgate with the hitch removed
Another happy customer is about to emerge as he is pulled below the large drying units located overhead
That is what a Lustra Washed vehicle looks like and today music for the occasion was provided by Sheridan Media from the van on the right
Another happy customer in a clean vehicle visits with Teresa Law who is helping direct traffic on opening day - normally she manages the books
Two more happy customers exit the wash
Behind the scenes co-owner Dave Will checks out the 50-horsepower turbine that Vacutech is installing to run the multi-inlet vacuum system that is still in the installation process
It takes several hydralic pumps to move all the liquid around in washing your vehicle
Check out this behind the scenes "soap" dispensing area
Part of the control system that recovers almost 80% of the water used in the cleaning process. Can you say that about your hand washing of your car at home when it sits on the driveway and excess water runs down the street?
