DuPont Hot Hues Featured on Two New Custom Vehicles at SEMA

Two never-before-seen custom vehicles will debut Nov. 4 at the DuPont Hot Hues booth at the SEMA show in Las Vegas. The vehicles – a 1956 Chevrolet Nomad and a 1951 Henry J – are finished in DuPont Hot Hues, a line of custom finishing products that includes special two- and three-stage basecoat colors, concentrated candy dyes and other special effect finishes such as Hot Efx Brilliantz and Hot PinStripe Efx.

The Nomad was built by Dominator Street Rods in Brentwood, Calif., and painted by Creative Images in Lodi, Calif.  The owner is John Wulff of Stockton, Calif. The stock color scheme features Hot Hues Blackened and Boyd Red, said Leonard Lopez, owner of Dominator Street Rods. The engine is a Chevy LS2 with Magnuson Supercharger. The wagon has a Newman chassis, a Corvette suspension and an all-leather Sid Chavers interior.

The builder and painter of the ’51 Henry J is Lakeside Rods in Rockwell City, Iowa. The owner, Joe Faso, of Stockton, Iowa, will see the car for the first time at SEMA. The sedan was converted into a “tin woody wagon,” according to Roger Burman, owner of Lakeside. Burman used Hot Hues Blackened and custom-mixed colors to create a wood grain effect for the body. The frame is powder coated with two coats of DuPont Zinc Gray Primer. Topcoat is high gloss Cat Black Tgic Polyester. Suspension parts are Black Magic Urethane. Lakeside stretched the Henry J four inches, added a nine-inch Ford rear end, power steering and brakes, tilt wheel, custom tail lights, custom deck lid and hand-built dash. The engine is a carbureted, 440-h.p. Chevy LS 364 engine.  On display, the station wagon is 46 inches high.

Both vehicles will be unveiled at 3:05 p.m. on Nov. 4 at Booth 22593 in Hot Rod Alley at the SEMA show. For more information about Hot Hues products or programs, visit www.hothues.dupont.com or call (800) 438-3876.
