The second-annual Charleston Auto Expo takes place on Sunday, September 23, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Blackbaud Stadium. Onsite experts will demonstrate products including Meguiar’s waxes, 3M Clear Bra, and LLumar window film, and lead workshops on services such as paintless dent repair, car-audio installation, and detailing. There will also be a car show, a meet-and-greet with sports-car racer Leh Keen, live music, and bounce houses for youngsters. Each option includes a goody bag and entry into a prize drawing.
Charleston Auto Expo
Each year, the Charleston Auto Expo rounds up the area’s automotive specialists to harness their collective know-how for a series of demos and workshops. From one booth to the next, crowds gather to learn about the latest auto products and the niftiest auto-repair services, such as how to repair dents without scratching the paint, and how to make a car look brand new without locking it in a car-wash tunnel for three weeks. In addition to the workshops and demos, the expo also feeds appetites for vintage wheels with a car show, keeps youngsters entertained with a kid-centric playarea, and rewards attendance with giveaways. Proceeds from the event benefit the Dillon Frisbie Foundation.
Inside Pleasant Details’ 12,000 ft. service center, technicians set to work wrapping automotive parts in protective films and detailing rides big and small—from airplanes to motorcycles—with Meguiar’s products. The shop’s specialties include installing computer-cut window tints to ward off heat, safeguarding paint with 3M films, and fitting auto bodies with vinyl racing stripes and banners so drivers can advertise a local business or creatively ask that crossing guard on a date. Throughout each service, the detailing crew pulls from high quality product lines including LLumar, 3M, and XPel.
