I need tips relating to car shows
I have a car show coming up on saturday. I would appreciate ANY input on things I should make sure I have done, or what judges look at, or ways I can make things appear better...any help is appreciated. Thanks.

CLEANLINESS!!! ask any judge, clean your tires use a toothpick to pick out rocks, take care of scratched make sure everything is clean enough to eat off of chrome is polished etc. also they look for quality of parts and installation. theres lots more i could say but im too lazy

Never leave your vehicle until the judge finished judging your car..., if a judge goes and judges your car and you car not there...that is points off.. thumbsdown

- it's got to shine (as stated many times already)
- it's got to be original
- it has to consist of quality, name-brand components

If you use this car as an everyday driver forget it. Youll be cleaning for a week straight! no shit! Make it a point to have the Hood, trunk and doors open, even theres nothin done to 1 or more of the 3. A judge will mark points off if they are unable to see.
