Machel’s bus gets makeover
Machel Montano’s HD bus is being outfitted with a brand new look for Carnival 2009.
The “makeover” is being done by representatives from Arlon Inc. of California, USA, currently in Trinidad to supervise and apply a special new material to the popular soca star’s touring and promotional vehicle.
The bus is being decorated with larger than life images of members of the HD Family, along with colourful and exciting images from Montano’s upcoming children’s book, Boy Boy and The Magic Drum.Work on the outer appearance of the HD bus is expected to be completed by this weekend and will be unveiled to the public soon after.
The bus was first prepared for the special application by recently-opened vehicular paint and customising company, The Auto Guru Limited, of Lady Young Road, Morvant. The application being done on the HD bus will be used as a showcase of the new material “DPF 6000X”.
Michelle Cornilliac, Managing Director of Sign Stop Limited, which is supplying equipment and raw materials for the painting process, gave an insight into the makeover.
Sign Stop Limited and its US counterpart, Arlon Inc, will host a special “Wrap Session” for local sign companies to showcase the new technology all day today and Friday, at The Auto Guru.
