A 1966 Ford Bronco owned by Richard Gochanour and painted by Adam Krause at The Refinery by Adam Krause Inc. with Glasurit 90 Line Refinery Green and Refinery Brown was crowned the winner of the BASF Glasurit Best Paint Award at the 2015 SEMA Show. It was the first year the award was given out.
Out of a field of 19 entries, the Bronco stood out for its highly precise paint job, according to award judge and presenter Chip Foose.
“Broncos are notorious for door panels and fenders that don’t line up. This one had panels that were laser straight and the body prep was amazing,” Foose said. “The color was subtle and classy and the finish was glossy, consistent and beyond compare.”
Other notable finalists for the award included the 1971 Plymouth Cuda owned by Roger Byrd and painted in Glasurit Smoke Silver by Troy Trepanier at Rad Rides by Troy, and the 1969 Ford Mustang owned by Tim Spencer and painted by Jonathan Goolsby at Goolsby Customs in Glasurit 55 Line.
The Glasurit Best Paint Award was created to honor outstanding excellence in vehicle painting using Glasurit 22, 55 or 90 Line products, including primer, color and clear. Judging was based on fit and finish, quality of preparation and final presentation.
