The Ford Bronco for the 2022 SEMA Businesswomen's Network (SBN) All-Female Vehicle Build recently arrived at the SEMA Garage in Diamond Bar, California – marking the beginning of an exciting new project that will shine the light on women in the aftermarket industry. The build began earlier this month and will be completed in late October just before the SEMA Show.
"We are proud to showcase the careers, talents, and skills of women in the automotive aftermarket through this one-of-a-kind build," said SEMA SBN Director Nicole Bradle. "In doing so, the SBN paves an exciting pathway for women builders and industry professionals to come together and showcase their contributions to this industry."
SBN volunteers have begun disassembling the vehicle and working on modified suspension, wheels and tires. The vehicle will depart to the SEMA Garage in Detroit on August 8, where final accessories will be installed, including enhanced electrical, lighting, exhaust, intake and wrap. The final build will replicate a rendering created by Monika Kalenski, founder of MEK Magnet. (Kalenski, who's rendering was selected by popular vote on social media to be used as inspiration for the SBN Build, was a Top 10 competitor in the 2021 SEMA Launch Pad competition.)
The completed vehicle build will be displayed at the 2022 SEMA Show in Las Vegas. Follow SBN on Instagram (sbn_sema) and Facebook for updates on the build's progress.
