Yeah, I do a thorough detail before this show every year. Everything gets touched. I even took off the wheels to clean all around those and also clean up the wheel wells.

I spent about 6 hours on the engine, 5 hours on the interior, and 7 hours on the exterior.

It would have been more if I needed to clay bar the car, but it was still smooth from the last time I clayed it.

Well, technically I couldn't have lost. The win would have meant something if I had some competition. I lost last year with just one other competitor so who knows what would have happened this year if other people entered my class.
