ColorBond Paint has announced Carlos Medrano as the winner of the 2018 ColorBond CLeo Award. The award recognizes individuals who have shown excellence using ColorBond car interior paint to restore or restyle the interior of an automobile.
The CLeo was established in 2014 to honor Leo Kagan who was responsible for moving the SEMA Show in 1977 from Anaheim, California to its current location in Las Vegas. Leo is 102 years old and continues to work for ColorBond Automotive Paint.
In announcing Medrano as the winner, the company said, “The results Carlos achieved using ColorBond LVP Refinisher are beautiful and we are truly honored Carlos chose ColorBond to help convey his artistic expression. As you can see, Carlos’ 2013 Honda Civic Si turned out incredibly well and the colors go together beautifully. The interior that was originally teal and black has been transformed to a stunning white.”
In 2016 Carlos won the CLeo Award with this same car. Of note, he was able to paint the ColorBond LVP Refinisher on top of that previously existing without any build-up or loss of surface detail.
“Thank you for the opportunity that ColorBond gave me. It was a pleasure and honor to represent the company once again. And the icing on the cake is being the proud recipient of the CLeo award for a second time. It’s priceless,” said Medrano.
