Absolutely, I entered the show and shine late on (about 10:30 Sunday) and the only space left was next to Paul!

Please tell me Paul placed in the S&S?! Having seen his car in the metal it's practically new. As Tom says shiny paint is one thing but the level of detail throughout is damned near perfect.

 

What does one have to do to get a trophy?????

I came third in Concours standard, with which I am delighted. The main problem was not the restoration but my presentation and some real basic school boy errors. It was my first time and the judges were helpful in pointing me in the right direction.

 

I really enjoyed the whole experience and can't wait until next year. I'm not telling tales out of school but I wasn't the only winner was I Tom........ :o

Yes apparently I heard that some obnoxious nobhead called Fenton from Yorkshire with a ropey looking laser green 205 GTI managed to bag Show and Shine standard class 3rd place....somehow??
