My son who works there didn't see one, my daughter camped all weekend and didn't see one. Hubby and me were there just for the show and shine today and we didn't see one either. So unless there was one hiding somewhere, I don't think so. I was surprised I must say. I know from the members map there are not too many locally, but people drive for miles for Bug Jam

That's funny Scoop77.

We are complete novices when it comes to detailing lol. It was sooooo dusty there too, it was really hard to keep fhe car anywhere near clean.. So if it looks good, I thank you, but it really did have a layer of dust on which you could write in

Prior to getting to the track (where a stupid road sweeper insisted on going past again and again and kicking up dust over and over again) we had washed it with Muc Off shampoo and then polished it with Auto Glym Super resin Polish. The alloys had some multi purpose Auto Glym detailing spray on and the tyres had Auto Glym tyre dressing applied.

Hope that helps xEdited by: bugbabe34

The beauty of black ;) I thought as you were in the show and shine it was your thing.
You can't beat autoglym srp. I have tried the muc off shampoo. It's quite good. Hope you're not using sponge and chammie? Get a wax or sealant over the top of everything else for best protection.

Hmmm yes exactly that. What should I be using?

Well it's not a traditional sponge, but a blue thingy with bobbly bits on one side and a mesh on the other. But it's definitely a traditional chamois

I did ask the Auto Glym salesman at the show and he said a new car didn't need waxing. Just use the polish

Sounds like a microfiber mitt. Nothing wrong with that but lambs wool mitt is better. Use a heavy microfiber drying towel. Autoglym and Meguires from Halfords do it all. Have a look at detailingworld.co.uk. I don't agree with the salesman though. It's all about not rubbing dirt into the paint and scratching it and then protecting it. The srp won't last long but the wax over the top does.

Thanks Abs. I've just ordered some new detailing stuff, so hopefully it will look even better soon.

I was a bit hesitant too, but it was that or park outside the venue altogether
I just had to bite the bullet and walk away from the car

I went for the Auto Glym tar remover, Supagard sponge and Auto Glym HD wax. I will get a new wash mit (as advised
). And I got some insect remover

I already have quite a bit of stuff here (not that I know what to do with it all)
