Car Dealers and Auto Auctions helped FenderSplendor, Inc shatter every known Paint Meter sales record in the last 18 months. FenderSplendor President Allen Willey said "missing paintwork on an appraisal or a trade in can easily result in a $1,000 loss and car dealers now have an affordable way to avoid this catastrophe."

Up until FenderSplendor got in the business manufacturers and their distributors sold a few gauges which were very expensive.

Just 18 months after the introduction of the FS 488 Paint Meter, FenderSplendor President Allen Willey announced that the FS 488 had hit a milestone of more than 3,300 sales. When asked about this amazing success, Allen said it all started 4 years ago when he decided to start discounting quality paint meters so that more car dealers could afford one. "Up until FenderSplendor got in the business manufacturers and their distributors sold a few gauges which were very expensive."

Being a former New Car Dealer, Willey recognized the need for an affordable paint meter and began looking for a way to sell to all the new and used car dealers, not just the 'high-line' dealers. After 2 years in the business, Willey released the FS 488 Paint Meter in March of 2006. Sold on eBay and on the website the FS 488 became the fastest selling Paint Gauge in history.

Willey said, "We spent over a year and close to $100,000 developing a Paint Meter just for new car and used car dealers." Sales of the FS 488 have proven that it is the meter of choice for informed car dealers and auto auctions. Willey added that the FS 488 Paint Thickness Gauge is smaller, lighter and easier to use than any of the previous gauges car dealers were using. "By offering the FS 488 on the Internet at we are able to hold our sales cost down and provide a great value for our dealers."

"The most exciting thing about our business is that we have not even scratched the surface." Willey added that FenderSplendor has added the all new FS 502 for Powder Coating and Metal Fabricators. Available at the FS 502 is quickly becoming the Mil Gauge of choice for industrial use. Willey concluded by saying, "our recently expanded offices and warehouse in Gulf Shores, AL have given us the capacity to sell over 3,000 gauges in 2008. This is our third expansion in 4 years and I hope we out grow this one too."
