STRONGSVILLE, Ohio -- Dave Perewitz, Charley Hutton and Paul Stoll - all talented painters in the world of custom cars and motorcycles - will demonstrate custom painting techniques using PPG Industries finishes at the upcoming SEMA Show in Las Vegas. They will join PPG in the West Coast Customs exhibit.

Perewitz and Hutton are renowned for their custom painting. Stoll is well-known to industry insiders as a PPG master instructor and a highly-respected painter. The three will appear in the West Coast Customs exhibit at a full-size paint booth featuring Vibrance Collection custom finishes and Envirobase High Performance waterborne coatings by PPG. They will conduct one-hour custom painting classes demonstrating the creative possibilities of the PPG paint lines. Perewitz and Hutton also will be available for autograph signings.

The paint booth is part of the West Coast Customs "Experience," a series of live, master-level classes on welding, fabrication, interior, mobile electronics, car wrapping and other customizing-related topics exclusively for SEMA Show attendees.

Dave Perewitz is considered a living legend by hot rod, street rod and motorcycle enthusiasts. He is known for his one-of-a-kind, hand-built creations and stunning flame designs. He is a devotee of PPG paint and the force behind Perewitz Cycle Fabrication in Bridgewater, Mass. Perewitz gained national exposure when he competed on the Discovery Channel's popular Biker Build-Off series. He recently applied his talent to street rod design, teaming with Factory Five Racing and Street Rodder magazine to build an orange FFR '33 Hot Rod.

Charley Hutton is celebrated in the custom car world for his work on high-end street rods that has brought him two prestigious Ridler Awards, several Street Rod of the Year and Custom Rod of the Year awards and an America's Most Beautiful Roadster award. Hutton also has attained television fame through the Discovery Channel's American Hot Rod show, working with the late, legendary custom car builder Boyd Coddington, and on SPEED's Hot Rod TV and The Learning Channel's Overhaulin'. He recently opened Charley Hutton's Color Studio in Nampa, Idaho, where he exclusively uses PPG Automotive Refinish products.
