Discovery Channel Show ‘Fast ‘N Loud’ to Feature Valspar Paint Products

Valspar's De Beer Refinish line will help Richard Rawlings and KC Mathieu transform old hot rods into unique show pieces.

KC Mathieu and Richard Rawlings of Gas Monkey Garage.Valspar Automotive has announced the Discovery Channel series “Fast ‘N Loud” will feature its De Beer Refinish line of paint and refinishing products. “Fast ‘N Loud” star Richard Rawlings and show painter KC Mathieu are using Valspar Automotive’s De Beer Refinish products to transform neglected cars to unique automotive restoration show pieces. “Fast ‘N Loud” currently airs Monday evenings at 9 p.m. EDT on the Discovery Channel.

“Valspar Automotive’s De Beer Refinish products help bring our creative visions to life – no matter how crazy or wild those visions might be,” said Rawlings, owner of Gas Monkey Garage. “I’d personally pick these products to restore a car of my own, so I’m really excited to incorporate De Beer into Gas Monkey Garage and ‘Fast ‘N Loud.’”  

Rawlings, Mathieu and the crew at Gas Monkey Garage are using the De Beer BeroBase 500 basecoat system. The complete system allows all solid, metallic and pearl/mica car color formulations, and it can be applied with both conventional and high efficiency techniques.

“There’s no better way to show off the high-impact quality of the De Beer 500 Series than by using this product to refinish unique hot rods,” said Peter Willman, general manager of Valspar Automotive. “If anyone can show the versatility and uniqueness of this product, it’s Richard Rawlings, KC Mathieu and the crew in Dallas.”
