Mercedes Benz Gullwing Flies into Lake!

Almost Everything's Wreck of the Day happened in Liupanshui, China. The car is (was) a Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Gullwing. The owner lost control and flipped the car into a pond. Amazingly, he survived without any significant injuries. The megabucks car was not so lucky.

Gold Plated Audi R8 Crash

Almost Everything's Wreck of the Day is a "gold plated" Audi R8 in Hamburg, Germany. We're not sure there is any actual gold involved. . . other than the money that went down the drain when this happened. As is most often the case, the driver was at fault. He ran after a police chase ended when he hit parked cars. It isn't clear if it was the owner who was driving or a thief who the owner claims took the car.

1991 Nissan Silvia Refinished

Almost Everything's Car of the Day is a 1991 Nissan Silvia, this car started out as an American market Nissan 240SX Coupe. The car's front end underwent a radical conversion to look like its Japanese market counterpart. Most aftermarket and replacement parts do not come painted to match the car that they are going on. This particular car had not been refinished since its new front end panels were installed and the whole car had been sprayed with a flat black primer making it look terrible! We made this Silvia look much better by first applying our own primer sealer to ensure that the new paint would adhere to the vehicle's surface and to provide a uniform base layer for the drastic color change that was coming. The car was originally black. Opting for a very glossy and clean look, the owner chose to refinish the car with "Championship White" in our Enamel + UV protectant paint!

Wreck of the day!

Honda Civic Si Color Change

Almost Everything's Car of the Day is a 1999 Honda Civic SI. This car came to us with lots of peeling, delaminating and chipping paint making the whole car look pretty bad. This is a very common problem found on cars of this era! To fix this problem we started out by removing all of the delaminating paint with our dual action sanders, which "feather" all of the peeling hard edges so they will lay smooth and not cause a problem beneath the new paint. Once the sanding had been completed the car moved into the paint booth where we applied a primer sealer so that the new paint has a solid surface to stick to. We refinished the car with one of our Base Coat - Clear Coat paints! The car was originally grey when we began our work. Instead of repainting the car with the non-factory grey color again the owner decided to have us apply a Honda original color called "Electron Blue Pearl".
