With a long history of providing only the finest products to professionals and bodyshops, Slim's Detailing is about to explode onto the UK consumer detailing scene, expanding out to supply to the public. We have been very lucky to be working alongside them, imparting our knowledge, assistance and specific brand of crazy. With their consumer website and online store due to go live, the team secured a stand at Waxstock to meet the public and ensure their place in the detailing pantheon.
This year's show was bigger and better than ever before, with approximately 500 million people* attending to ogle the beautiful cars, pick up tips and tricks from professionals, ogle the Swirl Police (admit it, fellas) , and snaffle some sweet bargains at the same time. More cars than ever took part in the two show competitions, the rigorously-judged SHOWDOWN and the less ferocious Arrive and Shine, and there were some real beauties on show.
At the Slim's stand we were busy busy all day long, meeting lots of old friends, making new ones, filling people's brains with professional advice and their grabby hands with wonderful products. It was also the first time that the KochChemie range of products were directly available - around since the late 1960's, KochChemie have never been distributed in the UK before and are exclusive to Slim's Detailing.
A great (and exhausting) day was had by all, and we'd like to thank Matt, Rachael (who is now officially known by general consensus as "Racquel"), Andrew and Stuart at Slim's for asking us to be involved, and of course Dom, John, the indefatigable and legendary PJ and all the other folks who created and organized this year's event into the epic shinefest that it was.
Here's ALL THE PICTURES. All of them. Go fill your eyeholes! As always, click on any picture to embiggen it.
*actual number may not be 500 million.
