Plastic repair GURUS since 1981

The 2018 SkillsUSA National Leadership and Skills Conference was held at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville, Kentucky. This year, nitrogen plastic welding became a scored part of the Collision Repair Technology segment. Kurt took some of our nitrogen plastic welders and nitrogen generators for the competitors to use. Here are some photos of Kurt's trip to SkillsUSA.
