PPG devotees Jerry Covington and Dermie Close were recently honored for their respective outstanding achievements in the world of custom motorcycles and cars.


According to PPG, Covington is a longtime fixture in the world of motorcycles with a career spanning 40 years and is widely recognized as one of the most talented and innovative custom bike builders in the industry. On August 10, he was inducted into the Motorcycle Hall of Fame in Sturgis, South Dakota, in appreciation of his dedication to promoting and advancing the sport and culture of motorcycling.


Covington's shop, Covington’s Customs, is located in Woodward, Oklahoma, where he and painter Bruce Mullins use PPG’s DELTRON®, GLOBAL REFINISH SYSTEM™ and VIBRANCE COLLECTION® products to turn out motorcycles and cars.


During the recent Hall of Fame induction weekend, one of Covington’s bikes won seven major awards in several prestigious competitions, including Best Use of Paint (Perewitz Custom Show) and Best in Show (Baddest Bagger Show).
