28 Tuesday July 25 2017 Latest Christchurch news at MOTORCARE PROFESSIONALS SELWYN TIMES Hollands have gone water Superior technology is now a fixture at Holland Collision Centre in Rolleston with waterborne paints rather than toxic chemically based alternatives being used. This superior method of painting motor vehicles is possible due to a state of the art painting booth and other technologically advanced equipment imported from Italy. “A really good booth is needed when working with water borne paint so the moisture is extracted out of the paint,” explains Cameron, owner of Holland Collision Centre. Rather than drying the paint with a heater, the paint is blow dried in the booth. This results in the paint drying more quickly with great results. Waterborne paints are more sophisticated, enabling a more accurate colour match. This is especially the case with late model vehicles that have waterborne products that were applied in special factory conditions. With waterborne paints the result is enhanced paintwork that looks sharper so Holland’s waterborne paint spray booth. when you pick up your car from Hollands, it is like driving a new car out of the yard. An added advantage of working with waterborne paints is they are safer for the environment with less potential health risks for those working with them. Spraying with water makes clean-up of the equipment used, an easier task. It is simply Holland’s new tint room.

Therefore, solvents are not wasted or sent for recycling and purifying which is better for the environment.

SELWYN TIMES Latest Christchurch news at Tuesday July 25 2017 29 MY PRIDE AND JOY Motor Fest coming to Selwyn Motor enthusiast, John Winchester wanted to do something to support the Selwyn community. After getting together with other local motoring stalwarts his initial ideas were soon shaped into what may become one of Canterbury’s largest motor festivals. With motors the common theme for those involved, Selwyn Motor Fest will provide something of interest for everyone. “Whether it’s an enthusiast’s car or motorbike, truck, tractor, steam engine, stock car, hot rod, muscle car, classic or vintage vehicle, if it has a motor we want it at the show,” says Selwyn District Councillor, Craig Watson who enthusiastically joined the organising team. Craig says they are calling it a motor fest as the plan is to have a diverse display of motor related exhibits including army memorabilia, motor racing, hot rodding, the fire service, army and police. The group want this to be a really cool motor festival that embraces motoring and motors over the years and they plan to run it annually so people can show off their big toys and families can have a really fun day out. It is hoped to have over 1,000 show exhibits and three to four times that in people attending the day. The motor fest will also provide an opportunity for fundraising. This year, money raised will go to St John to assist funding of the new station and ambulances based in Rolleston as well as the other services they provide.
