UNDER THE HOOD

3M TRIP TO BRAZIL AND PUERTO RICO
September 17, 2012

I am so excited to be going to Brazil and Puerto Rico on behalf of 3M again. I look forward to return to see my passionate fans there! I arrived early this morning in Rio De Janeiro. After enjoying a great lunch at the Porcao Restaurant, I took a tour of the city. I met with the Dirija Body Shop Group, drew a couple renderings as gifts and then headed out to a nice dinner to celebrate the first night in Brazil. This should be a great week!

 
The agenda for tomorrow is similar starting off with a tour, a meeting with the Honda Body Shop Group, rendering drawings and then lunch. It should be a fun afternoon with photos, autograph signings, a demonstration, and cocktails with the Colorimetria Distributor. That evening I depart for Sao Paolo. I have a press conference the next morning and then I'm off to the Feitintas Trade Show at the Convention Center. I'll be at the Trade Show in the 3M stand on Wednesday, September 19th and Thursday, September 20th doing drawings, raffles and demonstrations throughout the afternoon. There will be time slots open to the public where I can meet the fantastic fans and the other times will be spent with some VIP customers. On Thursday I will head back to the Trade Show and do more demonstrations and meetings. If you would like to come by, *see below for the days and times it will be open to the public.
 
I depart much later that night but not to California quite yet. My next stop is Puerto Rico! I arrive on the 21st and attend a press conference, do a demonstration, sign autographs during a meet and greet and do drawings at the Technical College. After breakfast the following day, I will start with a demonstration - Bodyshop in Stand - talking about some of 3M's new products like Trizact 5000, the Accuspray Gun and 233+ tape. There will be an autograph and photo session, then more demonstrations and drawings at The X Shop. Finally, I have an interview session with TIVA TV at the Kat Kare Body Shop. A special dinner is planned that night with distribution partners and some body shops. I get to finish the last day with the 3M local team during breakfast and lunch. There will be a couple interviews and then I leave to go back to California.
 
I have a packed schedule but I look forward to a good time! Check for updated pictures of the trip on The Official Chip Foose facebook page https://www.facebook.com/chipfoose?ref=hl
