Cleaning your car at FCS



What are people planning to do/take to FCS?

After 60-70 miles down the M1, think mine will have quite a few flies and crap on the car and want to make sure its clean at the event.

Will Meguiars Quick Detailer do? Give it a quick once over?

I'll clean it the day before the show, then I'm going to enjoy the show. No-one cares if its clean or not unless it's in the top 25 etc IMO.

Edit - After seeing Christophers post, Tyre shine definitely improves it, but other than that, nothing! lol

bucketto, wee tub o shamppo, some qd, and mf's, drying towel and tyre shine, mind you i'll be doing about 350 miles so qd'll no cut it completely.

Ill be taking some QD and some tyre shine and some clothes

Like Claire says it was so dusty last year it was pointless, not sure if they have done something to remedy this though this year

Yes there isnt a rally thing, that was what kicked up all the dust last year!
It'll stil be slightly dusty if there is a breeze, as the main carparks are gravel/stones.

mine will be cleaned on sat evening then just taking my box of tricks, if the weather is ok it will just get a rinse and dry, if its raining then prob wont bother tbh

People are seriously cleaning their cars again once they get there? I'm sure no one will care, in amongst the other 180+ clios

Cleaned mine today, but going out on Thursday and Friday, and the England game is on Saturday, so i won't be cleaning it again between now and then.

Got to drive to Nottingham and back Wednesday, then back on Sat mid day.

I was going to wash it, think ill find muddy puddles or do a little green roading and get that ralle look going on.
