Custom Painter and TV Star Rich Evans to Join SCRS at 2011 SEMA Show

The Society of Collision Repair Specialists (SCRS) has added award-winning painter, fabricator and television personality Rich Evans to the lineup of activities taking place this year in the North Hall of the SEMA Show.

Evans, owner of Huntington Beach Bodyworks and Rich Evans Designs, is known nationally for his work on television shows such as TLC’s Junkyard Wars, Chop Cut Rebuild and Car Warriors on the SPEED Channel; and for his distinctive custom painting techniques that allow him to create some of the most striking heavy vehicle graphics in the world, including his much heralded "Tattoos for Cars" series.

While Evans has built his name on custom work and fabrication, he built his career on collision repair, and he will join SCRS at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 2, to speak about his career in the collision repair industry, the ever-changing landscape of the business and its technical side.

SEMA attendees are invited to stop by the SCRS booth (North Hall # 10727) to take part in this live interview.

"Our goal this year has really been a strong combination of developing the best, most relevant educational topics we could put together for the industry through our RDE program, while also embracing the best elements and opportunities the SEMA Show has to offer and highlighting them in ways that are focused and distinct to the collision repair community," said SCRS Executive Director Aaron Schulenburg. "Adding dynamic and well-known personalities like Rich Evans, who can provide exposure and insight into collision repair expertise that is as uncommon as it is fascinating, is one way to do this. We’re excited to have Rich join us in the booth for what is sure to be an interesting discussion, and a great tie-in to many of the topics that will be discussed in depth during the 2011 RDE program."
