car show yesterday

Well I was at my first MCA sanctioned car show yesterday and scored 88 out of 100. I'm happy with the score but I missed 3rd place and my first trophy by 1 measly point! Arrrgh!!!! Got a 23 for body (exterior) 23 for engine bay 25 (perfect score!!!!) For interior. And a 17 for wheels and tires... my wheels are factory cobra R's and are starting to show their age... does anyone know how much rechromeing will cost?

So does anyone know about refurbishing these wheels? Or even how I could pull a couple more points out of each category?

Re: car show yesterday

congrats, you can get a judge to show you where you went wrong if its not specified so you can improve that area or those items. Just be nice about it so they dont assume you are telling them they were wrong, but more of a "what are my issues so I can make them better"

as far as re-chrome you probably will come out cheaper to sell those and buy a new set~

Re: car show yesterday

instead of rechrome you could strip them or scuff them (depending on if they are pealing) and just coat them with something like plastidip etc to buy you some time~

Yeah I went to a powder coating place here in town... a LOT cheaper than chrome! I think I'm going to powder my stock wheels and save my money until I can rechrome the cobras
