Famous Street Rod Painter Charley Hutton to Join SCRS at SEMA Show

The Society of Collision Repair Specialists (SCRS) has added a live discussion with famous street rod painter Charley Hutton to its list of events it will be hosting at the SEMA Show Nov. 1-4 in Las Vegas. The interview and public Q & A will take place on Wednesday, Nov. 2, from 2-3 p.m. at the Collision Repair & Refinish Section Stage (North Hall #10873).

Working out of Charley Hutton’s Color Studio in Nampa, Idaho, Hutton has produced an impressive number of award-winning automotive refinishing projects over his career, most recently using PPG Automotive Refinish.The honors he has received include two Ridler Awards from Autorama, several Street Rod of the Year and Custom Rod of the Year awards, and America’s Most Beautiful Roadster award.
Hutton is also an established media personality, having first attained television fame through the Discovery Channel’s "American Hot Rod" show and then through appearances on Hot Rod TV and the Learning Channel’s "Overhaulin’."
"We have to thank our friends and supporters from PPG, who were instrumental in helping SCRS add such a high profile personality like Charley Hutton to the great lineup we’re assembling for the SEMA Show," says SCRS Chairman Aaron Clark. "Charley is of great interest and relevance to the collision repair audience, as someone who started off in this business like so many of the custom painters and fabricators did."
Added Domenic Brusco, senior manager of industry relations for PPG Automotive Refinish, "It has already been a great experience for PPG to be part of the Repairer Driven Education (RDE) program, and the SEMA Show has really given a great canvas for SCRS to use as they put together the educational agenda for the industry. Our partnership with Charley has shown us how his craftsmanship and point-of-view really complements much of the material that SCRS is offering in their RDE program, and we’re glad we can play a role in SCRS’s activities which are clearly providing the widest possible variety of useful content to the repair industry."Charley Hutton.
