When it's too cold I will do all steps in the garage and then squeegee the water out. Not my 1st choice but recently it's been too darned cold to use my standard procedure.
If you are going to make a regular habit of it, I can suggest getting some plastic sheeting from HomeDepot and tacking that up on the walls so they don't get trashed from the water.:mad:

The rinsing can be done with a little smaller water pressure, that way it wont splash everywhere.
It takes a little more time but the result is as good as done outdoors in the summer.

I also have the floor painted with Ucoat-it to so that clean up and squeege the water to the floor drain. The next garage will have at least a floor drain in each bay instead of sharing one (really like to have channel system drain).

Ranney, how about I give you my garage and you give me your beach?
C-MDX, I think RedCarGuy also has a garage equipped to handle washes. You might want to check out some of his garage pictures.
I wash & dry outside...in fact, I also do a lot of detailing outside, but that's only because I have a nice, shaded driveway and it never gets cold here.

Like others have said use low water pressure. Its a little easier for me since my water faucet is in the garage and it won't freeze. I plugged my heater in and it kept the garage at 60 degrees or so and I washed away, truck looks great. Yes more time consuming but its worth it, then when you are all done slip on a pair of ice skates and head for the driveway!
I will defiantly do it again!
