3M Automotive Aftermarket Division welcomed us to a very special event alongside the Woodward Dream Cruise of 2017. Chip Foose was the featured guest, along with 10 other of the top automotive painters from around the world who competed in the 3M PPS World Cup in Detroit.
Over the weekend of events, 3M demonstrated and showcased their latest 3M products for automotive body work. These new and innovative lines offer solutions for body repair, paint prep, painting, finishing, and appearance projects.
