Larry Wood to present PAINT YOUR RIDE Contest winner award at booth


STRONGSVILLE, Ohio, Oct. 24, 2008 – Some of the most accomplished custom automotive and motorcycle artists in the nation will appear in the PPG Industries (NYSE:PPG) booth #23093 at the annual SEMA show Nov. 4-7 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. They’ll be displaying their latest work: a series of custom-painted surfboards, each reflecting the artist’s interpretation of the booth’s colorful theme.

PPG’s SEMA booth celebrates the introduction of new waterborne-compliant Vibrance Collection coatings and demonstrates there’s no need to compromise creativity when working with the line’s colors and special-effect finishes.
