Cleveland, Ohio -- August 29, 2017 -- Sherwin-Williams has announced that Matrix Automotive Finishes and U.S. Chemicals & Plastics (USC) are now included in Discovery’s new series, Carspotting. A statement from the company says this will give viewers the chance to see how Matrix and USC repair and refinish products perform in some of the toughest tests yet.
The series, which currently airs Thursdays on Discovery at 9 p.m. EST, features entrepreneurial brothers Carlos and Pedro, who, with their best friend Niko, seek out the most broken-down and forgotten vehicles they can find and restore them to their former glory. The trio searches forests, farmland and foothills for abandoned classics. When they find one, they bring it to their shop to begin the transformation.
“When a car reaches the final stages of repair, Matrix and USC are go-to brands,” said Rob Mowson, Vice President of Marketing for Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes. Sherwin-Williams completed its acquisition of The Valspar Corporation on June 1, which included Valspar’s portfolio of automotive refinish products including both Matrix and USC brands.
“Viewers will enjoy seeing Carlos and Pedro pull a junker from a swamp or off a side of a mountain and turn it into a showpiece,” said Mowson. “That’s a strong testament to the exceptional capabilities and performance of both product lines in this setting. Viewers don’t have to take my word for it, they can tune in to Carspotting to see what the product lines can do. It’s going to be a fun season.”
Matrix and USC products are used in some of the restored vehicles that are transformed in the team’s refinish shop.
