Detailing Industry News!
This past month Dodo Juice created the extremely limited edition (20 containers) of their Supernatural Hybrid Wax Creation Engine Edition. This wax was created to celebrate the two awards that the regular Supernatural Hybrid won at the Detailing World 2012 awards and all 20 containers sold out extremely fast. Supernatural Hybrid Wax has been created in conjunction with Austrian cyber-craftsman Thomas the ‘Creation Engine’ and iClean.at, Dodo Juice’s Austrian reseller.
The Supernatural Hybrid Creation Engine Edition is a unique aluminum and perspex LED-illuminated airtight wax container, housing approx. 110ml of Supernatural Hybrid wax. Access to the wax is via three hex bolts opened via a special Supernatural hex tool. There will be a refill facility (at additional cost) so that the container does not become redundant once the wax has been used. 10 containers were sold for $459.60 each, with a total of $1527.60 being donated by Dodo Juice Ltd to Sebastian’s Action Trust. The other 10 containers were also sold for $459.60 by iClean.at, with $158.03 donated to Stiftung Kindertraum. Take a look at the amazing pictures of this special wax below!
