    Carshow necessities

    When you go to a carshow, what things do you take with you? What are things that you take to prep the car and what are some things you take for added "effects"?

    I have my birth certificate, a 2000 Camaro brochure from the dealership and a 1:18 scale model of my car I sometimes take. I always have my Zaino necessities(Z6, Z8, Z9, Z10, Z16), a few other detailing items and a chair.

    I have never been able to bring myself to take any of my trophies out to a carshow, although lots of people do it. I really don't know if it helps or not at times.

    Bring some mags. A camera. Something to clean your hands after detailing when you get there. Sunglasses.

    I do bring my trophys to the show i go to and all the judges ask me about the past shows i have been to. It may be tackey to some but i dont think it will deter the judges from fairly judging your car. From also being a judge myself.

    Don't forget the sticky lint roller, to pick up the small crap that gets in the carpet and floormats. Works good when a shop vac is not available.

    First off, "my" necessites, chair, cooler, and snack food. my camera and tripod and Dell pocket PC to review pics. Then the xyz's of car detail (its best to have too much, then not enough) as far as display goes, i have a nice board with my up-to-date info on it, my GM owners manual and brochure, my slp manual, and a small die cast. i dont bring trophies i think they send a bad vibe about a car.

    I used to carry around a mirror to slide underneath the car while at shows! you can also buy plexi mirrors for fairly cheap online if you decide a glass one is not for you... if you attend more parking lot shows where you are parking on a concrete/paved surface, the plexi is definitely recommended over glass! if using glass, frames are a MUST!
