The weekend after next im entering a corvette show(trying to at least) having never entered a car show before, what should i do to the 'vette to get it ready??

I plan on only leaving the hood open, and i do plan on cleaning up the engine bay(have been slowly) but what else?



Thanks,Jeff.

I think all you can do is clean and shine everything you can. If the upholstery has serious problem areas, some people put objects or covers over them to keep them from standing out. Good luck! That Granbury show is a nice one. I would be there, but will be driving back from vacation.:thumbsup:

Yea, my interior isnt that nice, the drivers seat needs to be recovered, so im probably going to just leave the windows up and the doors closed.

:agree: with Tex! Shine, shine, shine and above all just have fun at the show.:thumbsup:

I never enter these car shows expecting to win anything, it's just fun to hang with other car guys (or uh car people.);)

:cheers:

Im not planning on winning anything either, just going because there arent that many c4's around here. I know of 2, and i know one of the guys. You definatley wont see another 84' around here.

The C4's are one of my favorite styles of Vette's, if not the #1 favorite. Just have fun cleaning her up and enjoy the show.:D:thumbsup:

Take some pictures for us too.;)

Your paint needs to be Gleeming * * * *

If you have any tears in that seat, cut some thin strips of electrical tape and conceal them alittle bit

Till you can buy a seat cover

Or you could just have a seat cover overnighted to your address

I won 1st place at a local car with my last car

I built the motor and then had the car painted

A trippy Colbalt blue, people used to ask me about the color alot

The car got alot of attention

But it was time to move on :nuts:

Just go there and have fun

I walk around talking to people and asking them about their cars

I would bet that if you entered your Vette
you would do well. People just love to look, and
that draws the judges.:thumbsup:

Clean it up real good and when you get there, wipe it
down with some liquid clean and shine to get the road dust off. The fans love every car.:thumbsup:

Don't forget to take a folding chair, box of clean up stuff (towels, rags, wax, glass cleaner etc.) small ice chest w/ bottled water and sunscreen. Have fun! :thumbsup:
