Tires off and clean the inside of the rims type of clean. Spotless!!! Can't state this enough.



If any of you have ever competed at a big car show level based on points, you know what I am talking about .e.g.World of wheels/Autorama, Chevey Vettefest. Not just enter the show, but win at top show level. Detailing for a show is very hard work.



Who ever is picking, pick the best of the best and make TCG proud to say they are part of The Chicago Garage.



Easy, right?

I have never competed in shows, but I could only imagine the effort that goes into getting a car ready/keeping it ready for a show. I am pretty anal when it comes to keeping my car clean and the slightest layer of dust on the car drives me nuts at times.

But you still want cars that will show well. Those lights are very unforgiving. You can take a car that looks good from 5 feet away and it will look like shit under those lights. If you want the site to look good, and have people come to it the cars that are picked need to have as few imperfections as possible. I'm all for unique, but they need to be quality as well.

id punch my insurance company in the taint if they charged me a month of coverage for when i needed a few days...
