PPG Automotive Refinish will be showcasing its latest refinish products at Booth 578 at the 14th Annual V-Twin Expo, Feb. 8-9 at the Duke Energy Convention Center in Cincinnati, Ohio. The exhibit will feature motorcycle celebrities, custom bikes and new advanced refinish products that can help amateur and professional painters and builders turn imaginative paint schemes into reality.
Two of the custom motorcycle world’s stars, Dave and Jody Perewitz, will greet show visitors at the PPG booth. The father-daughter duo will appear Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to noon to sign autographs and talk about the Vibrance Collection custom finishes and Deltron product.
PPG will also feature its complete line of refinish products with a special emphasis on Ditzler Hot Rod Black topcoat and the Crystallance glass flake collection. Ditzler Hot Rod Black topcoat, which is part of the Vibrance Collection product line, provides a uniform, low gloss and deep-looking black finish designed to replicate the glory days of street rods and muscle cars. The Crystallance line offers six pigments silver, sapphire, jade, garnet, topaz and opal that create bright finishes with intense sparkle and flair.
In addition, two motorcycles painted with PPG products will be displayed. From Bill Steele’s Kustoms in Oakdale, Pa., comes the “Honey Bagger” with its gleaming gold finish. Steele created the Bagger’s look with Envirobase High Performance waterborne basecoat, Onechoice SX-1071 Etch Prime, ECP15 A-Chromatic Surfacer, ECS25 Sealer and VC5200 Custom Clear from the PPG Vibrance Collection.
Also on display will be a custom blue, white and silver Harley-Davidson Road King from Steve’s Restorations & Hot Rods in Frankfort, N.Y. Steve Hale’s bike showcases many PPG products including Crystallance, Ditzler Big Flake, Prizmatique pearl and Concept 2002 clearcoat.
The V-Twin Expo is exclusively open to motorcycle retailers and manufacturers.
