Sept. 25, 2018—BASF Refinish Automotive Coatings will conduct two educational sessions at the 2018 SEMA Show.

Each of the following seminars are offered through the Society of Collision Repair Specialists (SCRS) Repairer Driven Education series, sponsored by BASF:

Leading the OEM Transition (Session RD15) – Wednesday, Oct. 31, 9:30–11:30 a.m. – BASF’s Jeff Wildman and industry expert Steve Feltovich explore new vehicle technology and the impact on collision repair.
