5 tips to get your ride car-show ready

What are three things you can count on seeing at a car show? Passion, comradery, and eye-catching rides.

Car folks put a lot of time and effort into their vehicles, especially when they’re getting ready for a car show. Whether you’re caring for a vintage beauty, a lifted truck or a finely tuned sports car, you want your vehicle to stay in top form.

Here’s what you can do to get your car “show perfect”:

  • A clear spray bottle of Meguiar's® Multi-Purpose Cleaner.

    Clean grime

    The first and most important step in car care is getting your vehicle clean. But water and soap sometimes aren’t enough to remove bugs, grease and tar. Try Meguiar’s® Multi-Purpose Cleaner to do the trick.

  • A cannister of Meguiar's® Hot Shine™ Reflexion.

    Make your wheels sparkle

    Meguiar’s® Hot Shine™ Reflexion delivers that deep, black, wet look you love – but when the light hits your tires you get that sparkling shine.

  • A black spray bottle of Meguiar's® Natural Shine Protectant.

    Restore your interior

    Make your vinyl, rubber and plastic look like new. Meguiar’s® Natural Shine Protectant provides UV blocking for durable protection.

  • A box of Meguiar's® Ultimate™ Liquid Wax.

    Shield your finish

    You have to protect your paint. Meguiar’s® Ultimate™ Liquid Wax gives your custom beauty extended protection with improved reflectivity that doesn’t leave a white residue on the trim and plastic of your vehicle.

  • A box of Meguiar's® Whole Car Air Refresher.

    Get fresh

    Hanging an air freshener from your mirror just masks smells – it doesn’t get rid of them. Use Meguiar’s® Whole Car Air Refresher to help you permanently eliminate tough odours, and create a fresh, clean smell.
