Key Scratches on Chevy Tahoe

Almost Everything's Car of the Day is a 2001 Chevrolet Tahoe that had been vandalized. Every panel except the roof had deep key scratches. Otherwise the vehicle was in great shape. Unfortunately, the customer did not have insurance coverage for this type of damage. He chose our Major Chip & Scratch Repair, a new coat of primer sealer to cover the bare metal from the scratches, and painted the whole vehicle with a budget-friendly single-stage paint.

Almost Everything's Painter Saves Priest

Almost Everything's Painter, Jose de la Torre
Almost Everything Auto Body's painter, Jose de la Torre

Today's article has nothing to do with cars and everything to do with the quality of our people. Jose de la Torre has worked at Almost Everything for years as a painter and body technician. He moonlights as a superhero.

Last week de la Torre saw a man, Juan Perez, knock 89-year-old priest John Coleman to the ground. Perez is suspected of being high on methamphetamine. Perez beat the priest with the priest's own cane until the cane broke. Our painter, de la Torre, ran from his car to help. As reported in the July 17, 2015 San Jose Mercury News, the priest said de la Torre, "tackled the guy so quickly. . . like a football player. He was really outstandingly selfless." Two other men pinned Perez until police arrived. Coleman, de la Torre and the 2 other rescuers sustained cuts and bruises and were treated by paramedics. Perez is charged with four felony counts of assault with a deadly weapon and one count of elder abuse.

De la Torre never mentioned any of this to us. We learned of it by reading the newspaper. That's pretty typical of de la Torre. He is as honest, hard working and humble a man as you could know and we are proud and honored to work with him.

We made de la Torre show us his injuries from his fight with the murderous meth fiend

Fender & Bumper Repair on 2008 Honda Civic

Collision repair at Almost Everything Auto Body on 2008 Honda Civic

Almost Everything's Car of the Day is a 2008 Honda Civic involved in an accident. The fender, bumper and headlight were damaged along with some interior components. The customer's insurance company paid for the repairs. We replaced all of the damaged parts with new, aftermarket (reproduction) parts and painted the car with our Factory Match paint.

Before: The fender was pushed into the edge of the front door. Every time the door was opened, the owner heard a noise. The door was catching the edge of the fender and scraping both parts. Over time this would result in rust on the fender and the door.

Creased Quarter Panel on Mustang

Collision repairs & complete paint job on 1995 Ford Mustang by Almost Everything Auto Body

Almost Everything's Car of the Day is a 1995 Ford Mustang that had a big crease on its side. The damage was not covered by insurance so the customer took a budget-minded approach. Instead of removing the trim in the damaged area (tail light, black mouldings, bumper cover, vent) the customer had us mask these parts to keep labor costs to a minimum. And because the car was faded, he also took the opportunity to paint the entire car, not just the damaged area. For those with good eyes who spot something a little odd, he's going to replace the passenger side mirror himself.
