BASF Automotive Refinish Coatings
A brand of BASF - We create chemistry

BASF customer Straight Line Customs was awarded the Street Rod of the Year  by the Minnesota Street Rod Association (MSRA). The 1948 Austin A40 Dorset Radical Custom Rod Coupe, owned by Steve and Paula Jenkins, was nominated for the award at the Southern Cruzers Summer Spectacular and awarded earlier this year.

The winning hot rod, painted with Glasurit 55 Line “Deep Black” and finished with Glasurit 923-255 clearcoat, was built by Straight Line Customs in Burnsville, Minn., and Greg Fleury, owner of Fleury Hot Rods. Fleury, a well-known builder also based in Minnesota, led the engineering and fabrication of the build and brought to life what the car owners have dreamt of achieving for over twenty years.

“This past year was a very rewarding time for the 1948 Austin,” said Steve Jenkins. “I am thankful for everyone who has worked to make this 18-year project a success. A special thank-you goes to Straight Line Customs for the final bodywork and spraying the beautiful BASF Deep Black paint.”

“BASF is proud of everyone who worked tirelessly to restore the Austin,” said Tina Nelles, Marketing Services Manager for BASF Refinish. “We appreciate their partnership with us and dedication as a Glasurit customer.”
