Title: 2019 Show and Shine!!!!! 6/1
Post by: Gr8Dain on May 29, 2019, 06:03:57 AM
So who is excited for the Show and Shine this weekend?  I canít wait for it. Who is spending time cleaning their Jeeps?  I might clean mine this year. At least one of them. 😳

Not registered?  You should!  Weather should be good.

I scheduled a work from home day so that I can do some clean up at lunch. And get to the fairgrounds in the evening to help set up. It will be a busy day.

The YJ thankfully passed its inspection so I got it signed up.

Note to everyone - Register to be in the show! Our show is about the Jeep lifestyle. We want to see every kind of Jeep out there from old to new, from stock to buggy. Don't think you need to have the biggest lift or the most mods or the shiniest Jeep to be in the show, or even to win a category. The more Jeeps on the show field the better.

Mine is still really dirty from this past weekend's trip to Flag Pole, even after 20 minutes of pressure washing.  We'll see how clean I can get it for Saturday.   :?

Also, while our show is called a Show & Shine, this isn't like your typical car show where every thing is freshly washed and waxed. my YJ shows up as is and hasn't been washed in probably a decade.

Excellent, because I REFUSE to put tire shine on my tires.  I prefer the mud stained look.  Haha.

Stephen I have seen some of the dirtiest category rigs...........some have been really dirty!   :mrgreen

It's a gravel parking lot...no matter how clean your jeep is when you enter you will still leave dust covered (unless you plan on wiping it down with a rag every 15min).

I have a history of doing repairs in the lot once I get there. Fingers are crossed for this weekend. But I noticed last night that one of my cooling fans was not working. Grrrrr

Oh and 67 was pretty good. Not far from the top scores.
