In the post, Coan details his experiences working with Radiant Red. Coan discusses how he painted the No. 24 Axalta Chevrolet SS racecar driven by four-time NASCAR® Cup Series champion, Jeff Gordon in Axalta’s Automotive Color of the Year 2015.

“Nothing is more satisfying then laying down good paint with good texture, and good color,” said Coan. “I’ve seen a lot of changes during my 30 years in the business, but some things are timeless. Red has been around for a long time and I have a feeling it isn’t going anywhere thanks to all of the new toys a painter has to keep things fresh. Radiant Red has cutting edge color technology, and I can’t wait to get back to spraying it some more.”

“We are excited to have Ron Coan as a guest blogger. Many in the industry consider Ron to be one of the best custom painters working today,” said Lisa Miree-Luke, Axalta’s Head of Corporate Affairs for North America. “Ron really has some great insight on how Radiant Red can really make a car stand out.”
