July Cover for Automotive Report


Allen and I puzzled out an angle to represent paint manufacturer's ongoing concern with misuse of their products in repair shops. This is why I like trade papers; it constantly challenges my desire for striking, "fun to look at" solutions to what might be considered wonky material.

Be interesting to see what you'd have done with the Army's PS Magazine (Preventative Maintenance).



John Cox:

Hey Mauser
Manufacturers directions ignored or misunderstood.

Dr. Bob:

Part of it is that car paints and body panel materials have changed a lot and the whole business of automotive painting seems to have gotten more complicated and more technical, requiring smarter, better trained and expensive people.

I used to be able to fix rust spots and paint them myself, but it's gotten so complicated, I can't do it myself.
