PPG To Offer Expert Paint Advice At Summernats

PPG will celebrate the return of the Street Machine Summernats at Canberra in January 2022, with the company set to re-establish its presence at the traditional on-site location of ‘PPG Corner’.

PPG NSW CT Manager Sam Minter said the PPG stand will feature vehicle displays and “fascinating” exhibits.

“We are offering plenty of reasons to drop into the PPG marquee, but perhaps the most important is the opportunity to chat one-on-one with one of our expert PPG team [members]. Not only can you get the benefit of their knowledge and advice to help tackle your latest build or dream project – they can also guide you through the colour selection process to get the exact finish you are after.”

Minter said the Retro Colour Wall, which brings to life some of the iconic muscle car colours from brands such as Chrysler, Ford and Holden, is one of the fan-favourite PPG displays.

“This includes Silver Mink, as seen on the Holden HK [Monaro] GTS and Yellow Glow – complete with GT stripes – from the 1971 Falcon,” he added.

To give visitors a better insight into the step-by-step processes used in creating custom paint work, PPG will display a series of panels showing the preparation of a bare metal surface through priming, colour application, and clearcoat.

Summernats co-owner Andy Lopez said the return of the event will reunite the custom car industry and fans.

“Summernats is as much about seeing friends in the scene as it is about the cars, and many people are really looking forward to this annual opportunity to catch up with mates in what has been a strange and difficult time,” said Lopez.
