Auto body repair & detailing/Expert Profile

Ask A Question



I can answer most questions on auto refinishing materials. Especially PPG products. I have knowledge in the latest repair materials and techniques. When it comes to automotive paint I have a solid understanding of how things work.

Experience in the area

I have worked in a PPG paint retail/wholesale business for the last 15 years. I have dealt with many issues regarding paint and repair materials on a daily basis over the years. I don't know that I have all the answers but I would be willing to try.


PPG Trained and Certified. Training with 3M products and Meguair's products.

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

I learn something new about paint almost everyday. I believe no matter how much you know or think you know you can always learn something new.
