Valspar Automotive, a provider of auto refinishing products, has announced the popular cable show featuring Gas Monkey Garage has been renewed for its eighth season. Star Richard Rawlings and his crew are using Valspar Automotive’s DeBeer Refinish and U.S. Chemical & Plastics products to help them turn run-down hot rods to fully restored, unique show pieces.
Rawlings, owner of Gas Monkey Garage and the visionary behind its creations, said he is thrilled to continue using DeBeer Refinish and incorporating U.S. Chemical & Plastics products into the show’s work.
“Valspar has always taken care of my shop and our paint needs, and they continue to do so as we roll into our eighth season,” said Rawlings. “It’s critical that any paint we choose is easy to use, particularly in the fast-paced environment of our show. That’s what we get from DeBeer.”
Rawlings and the crew of Gas Monkey Garage are using De Beer BeroBase 500, a high-quality basecoat system. They also are incorporating U.S. Chemicals & Plastics body filler, putty and masking paper into the shop.
“I’ve been using USC products for years. Their products are top-quality,” said Rawlings. “They provide us with the tools we need to make the shop run more efficiently on a daily basis.”
“From Ferraris to Trans Ams, the team at Gas Monkey Garage uses Valspar’s DeBeer 500 System and coatings to bring these beauties to life,” said Gina Mahan, brand manager for House of Kolor, Valspar’s custom refinish brand. “Although DeBeer is an OEM-approved refinish brand, Gas Monkey Garage showcases its versatility with the incredible builds they produce. We are proud to continue to support such talent and look forward to seeing where season eight takes Richard Rawlings and Gas Monkey.”
