    Judges look for cleanliness. Clean everywhere and then do it again. Be sure to clean the fenderwells real good and under the hood. Also, don't have any cleaner residue lingering around, like too much tire shine etc.

    Ya, I started at the end of last year, and got 4. I don't get to do a lot of them though.

    Heck yes, there are a lot of shows where the judges prefer the stock over the modified cars. Car shows are not science. I have been beaten by cars that were no where near as modded as mine, but they were well maintained stockish cars but that was what the particular judges on that particular day liked. Car shows are a dice roll and there are lots of classes. Its not unusual that you will enter a small show and only have 2-3 cars in your class and all 3 of you trophy. Most definately give it a try and don't get discouraged if you don't win the first time or two around. You will most likely meet a lot of cool car people, see some nice cars, get some ideas and have fun.

    Yes, those always help a lot. It shows more pride in your car and for the judges that don't know a carb from FI (and there are car show judges like that) it helps a lot.

    I have been wanting to get one myself and have tried online but didn't find anything I liked. This will sound dumb probably, but I would try your local yellow pages and look under signs or something along those lines. I think you will have better luck at getting it customized your way if its done locally. Thats what I have found out so far anyways.

    Thanks for the compliment as well

    I have considered that one real hard and haven't ruled it out, but its not at the top of my list. I love Afterthoughts, they know me so well, they usually do discount me since I have bought so much over the years from them.
