loved this limited edition VW Beetle in Bottle Green Metallic at Slim’s last Saturday

Chemical Guys and Auto Finesse are just two of the brands stocked by Slim’s Detailing

A bit of machine polishing instruction

I popped over to sunny Enfield last Saturday morning to Slim Detailing store, not only to pick up a few essential supplies of a car detailing nature but also to take in their open day, which was quite an important one for the company’s bosses, Andrew and Stuart Moring, as it would have marked the 101stbirthday of their grandad, Slim Moring.

He was quite a character, old Slim and was a real pioneer of the automotive paint market in the UK, as he ran his own car body repair shop before becoming the importer of the French Valentines brand, while also setting up his automotive paint supply operation, Morelli’s.

The company is now one of the ‘big three’ of the automotive paint and re-finishing game, with fourteen branches and over 200 employees and the Morings set up Slim’s Detailing as a tribute to their grandfather.

There was a nice turnout of cars and customers last Saturday and it was a genuinely enjoyable day out. Also, with 48 car care brands represented, one couldn’t help but find a few tempting elixirs and potions to tempt you. For example, where else are you going to find the products of US brands, Insta-Finish and Malco, while Slim’s are also the main UK distributor for the Chemical Guys brand.
