Waxstock wouldn’t be possible without the generous support of our show sponsors. An indoor show of this size costs a considerable amount of time, money and effort to put. Our sponsors help keep entry prices low and the car parking free, as well as ensuring that features are well run and that prizes are plentiful and generous.
This year, our main sponsors are:
From the kitchen stove to influential car care manufacturer in just a few years, Dodo Juice is now less of a spring chicken and more of a wise old bird - having celebrated its 10 year anniversary in 2017. Famous for hand made, high quality specialist detailing products, Dodo Juice went on to create Waxstock with Detailing World to ensure that the industry had its own event in the face of hundreds of non-specialist classic and general motor shows. One of the few companies to make its own products to its own recipes, Dodo Juice prides itself on an impartial and informal approach, supplying everything from the most natural waxes to high tech nano-ceramic sealants. There are no black and white answers to detailing questions, but thanks to Dodo Juice there is always a lime green one... and it's probably whispered into your ear by a small blue mascot called Mr Skittles the Third.
Clean and Shiny was one of the earliest specialist online car care retailers, growing alongside a fledgling Detailing World about a decade ago. Some of the earliest detailing meets were held at the old C&S headquarters, but due to other projects, there was a hiatus in trading for a number of years until 2015 when Clean and Shiny was resurrected by the founding director. Reborn, reinvigorated and now firmly re-established, Clean and Shiny is one of the UK's foremost car care retailers, stocking a wide range of quality produce and equipment. Visit its Hampshire base and you are likely to be met by two out of the three Detailing World 'fathers' and the almost equally legendary 'Hello' Dave, who delights customers by creating artwork to order on their invoices.

Slim's Detailing is one of the most dynamic car care retailers of recent years, but their history stretches back to the 1950s. Slim himself founded a bodyshop (crash repair) business many decades ago, and created the Morelli bodyshop supplies group, which has 14 branches around the UK. With the smell of compound tickling their collective nostrils, it was only a matter of time for the current Morelli management to move fully into the detailing retailing arena. Their advanced online shop features a multitude of leading brands, price matching and some legendary customer care... and there's even a walk-in store in Enfield, London.
Our Project W sponsor is:
Our Wash Bay sponsor is:
Finesse Detailing from Hampshire have been helping Waxstock for years, so it is a privilege to offer them official sponsorship of the Detailing World SHOWDOWN wash bay on the Saturday before Waxstock. Note that this is only a service for cars booked indoors that have travelled down to the show, and Ben will only be able to provide the wash bay facilities rather than a full wetsand and machine polish! Ben will be showing off his considerable expertise alongside Andy 'Sir Shine Alot' on our Project W feature this year, and you can also book him yourself here.
