2. Slim’s Detailing Stool
Detailing is demanding work! If your loved one is always complaining about aches and pains after doing a job, this Slim's mechanical stool will help to take a load off. If you're unable to think of what products your detailer has or hasn't got, or what they like or don't like, want or don't want etc. etc. then this is a sure-fire way to guarantee that they'll be getting something they need. Featuring a swivel action seat with lever operated gas sprung height adjustment between 380mm and 500mm and a Slim's branded padded cushion for added comfort. The stool glides across workshop floor on five 60mm ball bearing castors and, last but not least, the base doubles as a temporary tool, product, and component storage tray. The perfect gift that says you care!
3. Carpro Drying towels
These drying towels from Carpro are luxuriously perfect for absorbing and removing water from paintwork. The Carpro Fat Boa Microfibre towel features a circular knitted raised cloth which creates the appearance, feel, and functionality of a 1200gsm cloth without the lint issues they can suffer from. The 800gsm, double layered towel amazingly gulps down water with ease. The edging is silk sown, so any risk of light scratches or marring is greatly reduced when running the towel over your paintwork. The Carpro Dhydrate towel is a brand new double-sided microfibre towel designed with cutting edge technology to absorb huge amounts of water while gently sliding over the wet surface without leaving streaks. With a special blend of polyester fibres, the Dhydrate Towel absorbs water without creating swirls or scratches. The double-sided design features a plush drying towel microfibre one side and a woven flat microfibre on the other to leave glass streak free. These towels are the ideal addition to any detailer’s collection.
4. Slim’s Z Shaped Creeper
The Slim's branded car creeper is ideal for detailers, mechanics, fitters, and smart repairers. Made with a comfortable black padded cushion on metal framework, the 3-way tool is perfect for all sorts of jobs around cars and workspaces.
- Lays flat on sturdy castor wheels.
- Transforms into an L-shaped seat with a backrest.
- Final transformation into a Z-shaped stool for comfortable working height.
Like the stool, the creeper will help to take the weight off your loved one’s feet, so they can keep doing what they love for longer!

There’s also 10 exterior pockets of varying sizes, plus a detachable shoulder strap, and hook and eye straps to keep your polisher in place. Sounds good, right?
