#aftermarket – From collision repair shops in Miami to hot rodders in Vancouver and everywhere in between, the custom calendar produced annually by Axalta Coating Systems since 1993 is rich in tradition. Many custom car enthusiasts throughout Canada and the United States endeavor to have their vehicles featured in the calendar. If your car is painted with one of Axalta’s brilliant paint systems it might just make the cover.
Axalta is pleased to announce the launch of its 2016 Custom Finishes Calendar Competition. Axalta is looking for motorized passenger vehicles including automobiles (imports or domestic), motorcycles, aircraft or watercraft, provided they are finished with Axalta custom finishes: Cromax brand, Spies Hecker brand or Standox brand products.
