What i do prior to the show at home...is vacuum the car thoroughly!! Nothing NO WHERE on the carpet!! I also,insure the interior is well prepped,along with the dashboard...windows inside are cleaned. With my Corvettes,and I am not proud to state here,they are used to exploit them at shows..local and otherwise. Thus,with my case,when I arrive at the show...the Corvette is mainly detailed already....But,I always insure I have packed a very damp cloth,to run over the treads of the tires....right after I use my small hand brush,to brush off any debris that may have collected on the tires driving thru the grass? getting to where ever you park it at...And,plus,I always rotate the tires OUTWARD...this shows the tires are clean and free of any road debris..and they are glistening..after the tire foaming cleansers have had time to work....If being in a judged event,and your car is in a virtual tie with another entrant,it may mean the difference!! Hell,I even waxed the weep hole in my gas lid compartment once in a Concourse event!! Yes!! They checked it too!!!

Run your California duster over the car....armor all the sidewalls.....And while doing that,insure the fender wells are dirt free...I also do the hoses under the hood....And when I know the judges are coming close...I have the doors ajar a tad,for them to look and confirm the interiors clean!! And oh yes...I always flip the hidden toggle switch beneath the drivers side steering column,and light the "strobes"....[img]/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif[/img]
All this sounds like a bunch of crazies...but i enjoy showing off the Corvette...both on and off the "field" of play..[img]/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif[/img]
Good luck with your show!!! Go for the GOLD!!
