About this event

2022 Hood Master Challenge image

FinishMaster, the leading distributor of automotive refinish and industrial coatings and supplies, is the host of the annual industry challenge, Hood Master, and it is back for the third year in a row! Mini car hoods are designed and painted by industry professionals from around the nation, giving them a platform to showcase their incredible talent, and giving them a chance to compete among the best and win some spectacular prizes.

In partnership with the Collision Repair Education Foundation (CREF), FinishMaster is also hosting the second annual PiN Master student competition where collision tech students, in high school and college, have the chance to compete and win prizes & equipment.

In addition to these two spectacular events, FinishMaster is hosting the second annual fundraiser at Hood Master to support CREF’s mission to give back to the collision repair industry and to the future of this industry. All proceeds raised from the fundraiser will go directly to a FinishMaster sponsored grant for CREF.

Donate any time to the FinishMaster Grant by following this link: Be sure to select "FinishMaster - PiN Master 2022" under "I want to support." We appreciate you helping us invest in the future of this industry!
