So you want to win the car show?
Simply- It's all about cleanliness
Judges will be wearing a speciality tool shirt, can you guess what it’s used for?
Judging begins at 11:00 am, please have everything open, if you are not by your car we will not return to re judge it.
IF WE CAN’T SEE INSIDE YOUR ENGINE BAY/ TRUNK/ INTERIOR IT’S A ZERO
( As we don’t have anything to judge)
This is the judging card, every vehicle starts with 20 per category and points are taken away for defects
Is you car clean, like really clean.. We will check the fender wells type of clean
How well was the car polished, scratches, dents. The newer the car the harder we Judge
Is it wrapped, how are the edges, glue lines, bubbles?
We check body panel gaps and fitment of aftermarket parts
Are all your hose clamps orientated the same way? Hoses and cables secured?
We check the cleanliness of everything. It doesn’t matte how expensive the part is, it’s the quality of the install
Are all of the items in your car related to your theme? Did you clean under your seats, even your door jambs? We don’t move anything but look at everything
Fit and Finish
This is a big one and missed a lot of the time, it doesn’t matter how much money or how little you spent on your car. We judge how well it was installed. We judge the car as a whole for this one.
Something as simple as body gaps, bumper fitments, installation of aftermarket parts. Are all your hose clamps lined up, same style? It comes down to the small picky stuff that will set you apart from the rest.
Take your time to get everything clocked and sitting perfectly, go full OCD for this one
This again is judging your car as a whole, what accessories or extra items did you bring?
It can also be based off of what inspired you to build your car
Is it clean OEM? Well, let’s see dealer specific things. Stuff related to your car or that was only available when your car was made.
Is it a race car? If so Let’s see some spare parts, safety stuff. Anything you would bring with you for a track day.
Off-road? Have some dirt on it! Let’s have it look like you just came from a weekend of roughing it.
These are just examples as this is your car, so do something that inspires you.
Write-ups and displays
Have a way for the judges and spectators to know what you’ve done to your car. We provide a small section to write highlights, but for some that’s not enough.
Cleanliness is key. The term “would you eat off it” should be insulting as it would make it dirty
**This is not all of the car show judging criteria, but are some of the final touches that are often missed which can push you ahead of the pack**
Trophy classes will be based off of pre-registered cars
