The long winter wait is finally over! We’re just a few days away from Ultimate Dubs 2017 – the unofficial ‘start’ of the UK show season – and Meguiar’s couldn’t be more excited!
Taking over the Telford International Centre, Ultimate Dubs is a welcome change to the typical show format for the simple fact it’s held indoors. Not only does this mean a great turn out irrespective of the weather, but it also means that paintwork is properly showcased courtesy of several hundred bright lights flooding the halls! Got swirls or cobwebs after a winter of washing? Unleash the Ultimate Compound…
With this in mind, it’s no surprise to learn that the Meguiar’s Detailing Bay has been a hive of activity during the run up to Ultimate Dubs. From daily drivers needing a complete correction through to freshly-painted show cars wanting that Meguiar’s touch, the Detailing Bay is the best way to fully inspect your paintwork ahead of an event properly protecting it in the process.
We’ll be bringing you a series of spotlights and galleries in the coming week, but until then let’s take a look at a couple of the cars you can expect to see on the Meguiar’s stand at this year’s event – kicking off with Nicholas Pritchard’s incredible RS500 Cosworth.
The RS500 is pretty special even in standard trim, but Nick’s fast Ford was treated to a full nut-and-bolt restoration before being equipped with upgraded brakes, suspension and of course the engine. Pushing out upwards of 450bhp Nick isn’t afraid to use the RS500 exactly as it was intended, despite its exterior (and interior) being immaculate! That’s exactly the sort of attitude we like to see at Meguiar’s – properly used without the abused part!
Next up is Kaggy’s Audi Q3 – a car you’d usually see doing the school run and not slammed on Rotiforms! That being said, you can’t deny how cool this Q3 looks sitting millimeter perfect off the ground courtesy of its Air Lift Performance suspension. It just goes to show that – with the right combination of mods – thinking outside of the box is no bad thing!
Heading to Ultimate Dubs this weekend? Make sure you visit the Meguiar’s stand in the main hall alongside the Players Show & Car Audio Security stands.
