I'll have a crack too..

Power rinsed, snow foamed, wheels cleaned, 2BM wash, power rinsed in between each process, dried with filtered water 0ppm via watering can.

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx237/aaronhtid/af8438a0.jpg

The whole interior was hoovered before being fully steam cleaned. The mats were all wet-vac'd.

That is one mega super clean Lupo GTI, best I have seen in the VW line, looks better than brand new, so much vibrancy and Gloss from the paint and the interior is super clean as well.

This is one car that gets me tinkling with sensation and pride, place this car for the show and shine event in Waxstock Aaron, honestly I have never seen a better looking Lupo GTI as Aarons in my life :), they are getting rarer as the year go's ahead :thumb:

Hi, I have not been detailing (or trying to!) for very long so don't know if my car would be good enough for this. The car is a 1990 205 CTI with original paint except the floor and wheel arches which I have redone to brighten them up a little. I have not been able to take outside pics due to having a 205 with its gearbox stripped out blocking the CTI in the garage so I have included some pics when it was used by a Peugeot dealer to launch the new Peugeot 208.

Photos allways make them look better than they are
I think i will be well out of my depth in this comp
Just hope all entries have to drive to the show as i will be ,never been on a trailer ,it has now done 157,000 miles and counting

Tank

Same mate never trailered the sierra has 98,700miles on it now few little defects but cant grumble as its been in the family since 1992 and 90% of the work was done by the family in the garage couple of sleepless nights haha. You going ford fair this year? Im trying my luck at the concourse :s

Tank

Nick thats thats to be expected tbh. I may brave a little machine polish but old paint and a buffer = may regret it, so elbow grease maybe the road for me as its always been that way someone keyed it at a show and luckly it came out with some compound on a cloth phew.
