NORCROSS, Ga. – AkzoNobel Sikkens was selected as the sole paint supplier for the VSR Cadillac V-series Powered Sport Rod, a custom-designed car unveiled in the Helios Coatings booth at the 2008 Specialty Market Equipment Association (SEMA) show in Las Vegas.
Designed by WK Cherry LLC and constructed by Race Car Replicas, the car’s engine is a V-eight cylinder, 400 HP model from Cadillac. The color that was chosen was Platinum Shadow, a custom blend from AkzoNobel Sikkens. Both Sikkens powder and liquid products were used on the car.“AkzoNobel exceeded our expectations,” says Wayne Cherry. “This car is an original. It was meticulously designed and constructed. Therefore, we wanted a coating, a color and a company that was equal to the vision and craftsmanship of the vehicle. As the world’s largest coatings supplier, AkzoNobel was up to the challenge. The Car Refinishes and Powder groups of AkzoNobel ensured that quality was delivered throughout the project.”
