Re: Car Show Prep

what car show, I am near that area and might be interested in going as well?

also for car prep I would start with the interior, use interior detailer on the dash etc then the seats (leather what ever after doing the shift knob and steering wheel), then vacuum the carpet and trunk carpet

after that I hand clean the engine (detailer on metal areas and trim protectant on rubber/plastic.

I use nothing greasy as it runs and look crappy (I like it to look new and clean). Meguiars has a non greasy interior detailer I love.

For exterior what ever you normally do, if you wash it with water I would do it later in the day when the sun wont dry it so fast, but you still have time to detail it and see it in enough light to get all the spots. Make sure to clean the rims and inside the rims as well as the brakes/rotors. If the rotors are rusty consider sanding the rusty areas and painting them with some high temp sliver paint when you have time, looks great. Just tape up the areas you dont want to paint and do light coats on a prepped surface.

Clean the wheel wells really good, at the very end so the rag wont touch the paint again clean them very good and scrub the actual rubber on the tires (side walls) really good.

After you washed it good fully dry it as best you can, even consider driving it down the road to blow off some of the water etc.

Go over it with quick detailer to remove water spots AFTER you clean the black trim and how ever you normally do.

Now the paint is clean and ready for wax if you need to do that.

Re: Car Show Prep

some "shows" dont do point style juding, they get some sponsors to walk around and pick their favorite, generally those are the ones with the most items from their shop installed on it. Just FYI dont be let down if thats how it goes~ find out first if it is so you dont waste your money if you dont want to
