It getting towards that time of year again. Let me first say that I have no connection to the organisers or any advertiser.

There's always lots of simple questions on here about, what wax, what polish or glaze etc etc.
Why not visit Waxstock 2016 this year, its at the Ricoh Stadium in Coventry, it's inside so even if there's a summer shower you wont get wet.

It's an opportunity to see, try and buy (often at significant discounts) car cleaning and detailing consumables and polishers etc.

You can talk with manufacturers and retailers about their products and see some amazing detailing work.
Its well worth a visit, you don't have to buy, but its awfully difficult to keep your wallet in your pocket.

Just out of interest, why does your fuel light need to be on to display your car?

Apparently it's the insurers. Some of the guys say it is quite normal and the regulars show goers are used to it. Some shows don't expect it as they reckon the fumes are more dangerous than the fuel. Suppose it is up to the insurance assessor to decide.
The security on the door won't let you in unless the light is showing but someone did mention that some guys have got a light which is on permanently!

If you go to Detailing World and look at the threads from previous years, you can see some of the entries. They are spectacular. The attention to detail is incredible and even if you don't particularly care for a certain car, they are still good. Well worth a look if you have a spare minute or two.

Yes, very expensive!! Next thing, you'll be on DW looking for the latest quick detailer, sealant, wax, shampoo etc. hard to resist.

Lucky sod, I got all shy and scampered off.
They should count themselves lucky I didn't revert to primary school pulling tactics: run up to them, kick them in the shin, smile sweetly and mumble "I fink I love you"

Lucky boy :D

Headed down yesterday for my first Waxstock and thought it was excellent.

After a 6 hour drive and lots of flies though I stayed in the main car park rather the arrive and shine. Although I was parked fairly close to it.

Lots of goodies and advice also. Mike Phillips was excellent and the top 3 were worthy winners, excuse the photography skills but below in the order of 3 2 1

I'm not long back from this years Waxstock, brilliant show and so good to see legends like Kelly KDS, Gave KG and especially Mike Phillips, who I had a good chat to, lovely guy and very very knowledgeable.

I was in my Sepang S3 and I also notices quite a few others on the car park. Some lovely cars there and some absolute bargains to be had. My wallet took a pounding, but Im good for products for at least a few months!!

Oh yeh, the swirl Police also took my mind off the pain in my wallet :yes:
