  mk 2 172
just had a thought, wot the usual thing to do about getting the car clean for the show,
i have a few hours drive to show so cars going to be covered in flies, just wondering wot the usual thing to do is? are people finding a local car wash or doing it there?

sorry if this sounds dumb, but i am a car show newbie:eek:

take some cleaning stuff with you, and when your parked up, give it a once over :) thats what a few people do in other shows

Yeah i'd give it a quick wipe down to get dust/flies off with a microfibre. Spray the quick detailer (I recomend Meguairs one) and buff it off with a different microfibre cloth.

Then sit back and enjoy the swirl marks PMSL.

I've got mine with two layers of wax on already, hopefully have a third down on Saturday morning. Then I'll roll down there, wash and QD it in the hotel car park whilst getting pissed. There it will stay till the morning when I roll down to the show ground to park it up for the day.
