SOUTHFIELD, MI, September 16, 2019 – Collision shop owners and car builders choose Glasurit paint for its world-class quality and shine.

In order to qualify, painters must use Glasurit 22, 55, or 90 Line products on their custom builds.  The winning car will get an award presented at SEMA by renowned builder and artist Chip Foose.


“Each year we look forward to this contest,” said Tina Nelles, Marketing Services Manager for BASF Automotive Refinish. “This is a great way to honor builders who recognize Glasurit as the best paint brand on the market, guaranteeing them that world-class look and feel that they are looking for.”
