PPG Releases 2013 Show Truck Appearance Schedule

January 29, 2013

PPG Industries'  automotive refinish business has announced the 2013 tour schedule of its eye-catching show truck. The custom-painted, 75-foot-long 2007 Coronado Freightliner tractor-trailer rig – sporting flames, colorful graphics, dazzling effects and paint schemes achieved with PPG products – will make 20 appearances in 18 states from March through October. Stops include major car, truck and hot rod shows sponsored by the Goodguys Rod & Custom Association, the National Street Rod Association and other car and truck enthusiast groups.

The truck is a self-contained display of exhibits featuring PPG paint products, with the truck as the star attraction. Show attendees of all ages are invited to check out the truck’s impressive exterior custom color and design work created by PPG master painter Paul Stoll and a team of custom painters from California-based Kelly & Son the Crazy Painters. This show-stopping truck wears PPG products including DELFLEET(R) Evolution F3995 Epoxy Primer, FBC Basecoat, FBC500 Blending Clear and F3921 Clearcoat. Its flashy finish serves not only as a striking testament to the capabilities of PPG paints, it serves as a vivid inspiration for those creating their own artistic custom designs and finishes.
