Our first day at SEMA and we thought it would only be fitting if we started off with a few of the lowriders that are out here representing.
The first is a 2009 Harley Davidson Road King we found at the MTX booth. John Shope built the Road King from Dirty Bird Concepts in Phoenix, AZ looked a various issues of Lowrider Magazine to get ideas for the build. He began by bagging it and laying frame on a 30inch front wheel. For the paint he decided to go with a 70’s style patterns and prison style pencil drawing throughout. “I saw how lowriders always incorporate rosaries to their rides so I decided to build a custom rosary on the gas tank,” explained John Shope.
The rest of the lowriders we are highlighting are all representing in the Axalta booth.
We start off with Luis Lemus of House of Pain Customs in SoCal and his 1964 Chevrolet Impala convertible. Built by Luis himself and painted by Phillip Rincon of Phillips Finelines. Phillip used Axalta Hot Hues blue moon CFX basecoat and hot candy concentrates with a cromax premier LE8700S clear coat.
The black 1961 Impala convertible belongs to Lorenzo Rodriguez. The ’61 was also built by Luis Lemus who used Cromax Super Jet Black basecoat and a Cromax clear coat.
Rudy Sandoval of Groupe CC brought out his Lowrider Magazine cover, a 1973 Ford LTD. Danny D painted the LTD and he used hot hues basecoat, hot candy concentrates with a Cromax clear coat.
The final car that we are showcasing is a 1936 Ford Pickup belonging to Sal Sierra. This 1936 Ford has been representing in the lowrider scene for decades and came out to SEMA with an updated look by Adam Stone of Stone Cold Kustoms who used Axalta Hot Candy Concentrates to update the trucks looks.
