BASF Paint Used by RMD Garage to Restore Tristan Eaton’s Lincoln Continental

Written by Bill Pierce

As one of the most prominent street artists working today, Tristan Eaton’s spray paint mural work is a visual collage of pop imagery, made unique by his personal style.

Eaton works on his fine art and mural work full-time, which is shown in dozens of cities across the globe---from Paris to Shanghai.


Eaton’s artwork is also in the Museum of Modern Art's (MoMA) permanent collection in New York City.


Recently, he brought his 1967 Lincoln Continental into the RMD Garage in Long Beach, CA, for restoration. In the promotional video about the restoration, Eaton gives a "shout-out" to BASF, the paint company that supplied the paint for the restoration, and Kicker Audio, the company that provided the new stereo system. RMD Garage released posts about the restoration via social media on Sept. 9.


The owner of RMD Garage is Ralph Holguin. He is also the star of the show “RMD Garage,” currently airing on the Velocity Network on Wednesday nights.  


Holguin, a Mexican immigrant and high school dropout, is an American success story. When he was 19, he founded a car detailing business that he transformed into a multimillion-dollar design and car-building studio for celebrities and VIP clients.
