Troop 14 Boy Scout Project
Boy Scout Troop 14 learns about the Auto Refinish Business from the Lonnie Bridges and the guys at Sinister Kustoms in Plant City. The project is their Troop Trailer that was in need of minor body work and a fresh paint job. They also get a visit from Jake of Tail Fins and Chrome Fame and appeared on his TV Show!
The guys were shown the finer Points of surface preparation under the watchful eyes of the Sinister Crew. The actual color application was handled by ABE’s very own Ron Drake, our Commercial Sales rep.
Products used were 3M refinishing products and PPG’s Delfleet Essential Single Stage with ESX530 Very Slow Activator and ESH200 Single Stage Hardener.
ABE and PPG supplied all the paint and 3M kicked in the sundries. All in all it was a good day and a great project that exposed several young men to an industry that they might not otherwise have been able to see. Special Thanks to Lonnie Bridges at Sinister Kustoms in plant city where the attitude is free and so was the use of their shop, time and expertise!
