Spies Hecker Paint Used For SPEED Channel Shows

Spies Hecker and Will Castro, the Long Island car customizer, and his crew from Unique Autosports will be featured in three fall specials airing on the SPEED Channel.

The first special, scheduled to premiere Nov. 4 at 10 p.m. EST, will feature LeBron James and his Ferrari F430, along with a Toyota Sequoia Platinum NBA All-Star Game project with Miami Heat center Alonzo Mourning.

For the second special, Nov. 11 at 10 p.m. EST, Castro joins rapper 50 Cent inside his Connecticut mansion, as the pair work on a project with Pontiac. Powered by a 500-horsepower LSX 427 engine, 50 Cent’s one-of-a-kind Pontiac G8 performance sedan gets some “unique” treatment at Castro’s New York headquarters.

“With these specials, we’re getting out of the shop and spending more time with our clients,” Castro, who has done projects for everyone from R&B legend Patti LaBelle to fashion designer Marc Ecko to boxing champ Bernard Hopkins, said.

For the third special, Nov. 18 at 10 p.m. EST, Castro and his team got to do a little retro work on a pair of “fraternal twin” Jeep Wranglers for Sean “Diddy” Combs.

“Diddy wanted us to make Wranglers like the ones Wesley Snipes drove in the movie ‘New Jack City,’” Castro said. “Since Diddy has twins of his own, he wanted the Jeeps to be the same, but each with its own look and personality, each one unique. We delivered one with a merlot theme and the other was platinum.”

Castro also is opening Unique Autosports Miami, where he will be installing Spies Hecker Permahyd, a waterborne technology automotive paint that reduces solvent emissions up to 90 percent.
