Grooming for a western show... tips?

My gelding and I will be showing in our first show in just a week and a half and while I'm sure we won't be bringing home any blue ribbons, I still want him to look his best.

My intentions are to groom him the day before REALLY thoroughly and leave him in a stall the night before. But I'm at a loss as to what exactly to do to get him shiny and sparkly and just more flashy.

He pretty much looks like this now, but has shedded out a couple times:

So any tips would be appreciated.

Do you have a local Tractor supply by you?
If so then I suggest buying a coat finish spray to make him shine.
