Helping Your Car Stand Out at the Next Show

 If you are interested in really helping your car stand out well at the next car show that you enter, there are some things that you can do to help really ensure that your car is presenting the best image possible. There will probably be dozens or maybe hundreds of other automobiles there, so you need to make sure that your vehicle presents the best wheel it can.  to really make a good impression on the judges.  Taking a car that is not properly prepared will usually leave you walking away empty handed, no matter how good your car normally looks or how unique it is.

Your first step should always be cleaning the outside of the car.  This includes all crevices on all places around the car.  Do not forget about cleaning the wheel wells, tires, door handles, window seals, license plate and all other places that can get dirty.  Even if it looks clean, clean it again just to ensure that it looks good.  

Once you have finished the exterior of the car you can start moving inside.  It is a good idea to do a good detail cleaning on the car before you go to the show.  This include thoroughly cleaning all of the air vents, seat belts, inside window seals, dash gauges, switches, and anything else that can be seen. You should also pay extra close attention to the pedals, door handles, window handles, and upholstery.  If the upholstery can be cleaned sufficiently using a vacuum cleaner then it is a faster process but also be sure to shampoo any stubborn stains. Additionally, spend some time using protectant wipes on all the vinyl or leather inside the car to keep it bright and protected so it looks beautiful..  If you have any wooden accents, ensure that they are also protected and shiny as well.

Inside and outside windows should be carefully cleaned multiple times. Make sure there are no blotches, stains, or smudges. Anything that looks dirty should be cleaned again, and even after the first time you clean them it is wise to clean it again just to ensure that there is no dirt or debris left on the windshield.   You should also carefully pay attention to all mirrors and any chrome that is on the vehicle and ensure that everything is shiny and looks like new.

The tired should also be cleaned as well, but you may need do to a brief touchup on the tires once you arrive at the car show.  You should always ensure you bring the supplies to clean the tires while you are there, rather than just cleaning the tires before the show.  If the tires are clean on the way, you may choose to skip washing them at the event, but you should always make sure that at least the sides are clean. are perfectly clean and there is no dirt or debris.

Your final steps should be ensuring that the car is waxed and polished before the show.  This makes the paint job on the car really pop and appear fairly good, and it can then be touched up if necessary at the event itself.  Having a clean car that is not waxed can be a bit of a disappointment for the judges so taking the extra time to wax the car is a excellent additional effort that can impress the judges during the rounds

Overall, your car should always give off a car powerful, clean and stately impression at the car shows.  You should never take an automobile that is unclean or broken, unless you are taking it as a work in progress for display purposes.  One of the easiest methods to make sure the judges notice all of your hard work rather than the dirt on your automobile is to only enter gorgeous, clean, glossy, and finished autos.
