PPG will tailor its stand at the 2023 Sydney Hot Rod & Custom Auto Expo to tie in with one of the show’s key aims of inspiring people to embrace custom car building by guiding attendees through the automotive paint process.
“For this year’s PPG stand we have designed a programme that revolves around fan interaction, including a star attraction,” said Sam Minter, CT Manager NSW at PPG. “As well as the ability to chat one-on-one with an experienced and knowledgeable PPG expert, we have secured a huge drawcard for visitors with custom car building legend Howard Astill, from Astill Design, appearing for meet-and-greet sessions throughout the two days. More than ever, the PPG stand is the perfect place to ask questions and get the lowdown on achieving a dream finish on your next project.”
Minter said visitors will be able to see examples of the colour palette available from PPG’s Vibrance Collection range of custom paint finishes and attend regular demonstrations of the latest Mirka abrasive and polishing technologies.
More than 300 vehicles are expected to be on display at the event, to be held at the Rosehill Gardens racecourse on 27 and 28 May.
“Around two months out from the event we already had a full house of entrants,” said show organiser Andy Minas. “There are a lot of new cars and the overall standard of entrants is incredible, so I think we are going to blow fans out of the water this year. It’s so big we had to secure another show hall to fit the HSV Super Show, which involves around 60 cars from the HSV Owners Club of NSW.”
