CARSTAR, North America’s largest premier network of independently owned collision repair facilities, is proud to celebrate CARSTAR Miller Auto Body’s award winning work highlighted at the annual Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show in Las Vegas this November.

Approached by his friend Chris Hill, who was submitting his 2019 Toyota Supra, CARSTAR Miller Auto Body technician Joel Zabel was excited to support.

“The Supra was kind of the hot car this year for SEMA and we knew a lot of the other submissions would have the same body kit on it that we had,” says Joel Zabel, technician, CARSTAR Miller Auto Body. “This is why I spent every evening for about two weeks working on getting the gaps as close to perfect as possible and even had my friends helping when they could.”

Hard work payed off for Joel, as Chris Hill was able to bring home third place against some large organizations who had heavily invested into their submission.

“For our small facility in the Midwest to be a part of such a huge win just feels incredibly rewarding,” continues Joel. “These car shows mean a lot to me and we were up against some heavy hitters and I am just glad our work did the Supra justice.”
