1993 Mercury Tracer Revival!

Almost Everything's Car of the Day is a 1993 Mercury Tracer.  This particular car has extremely low mileage for its age, unfortunately its paint job looked like a different story.  Over the years the sun and elements had destroyed this cars factory paint job, leaving the surface "peeling" faded and cracked.  We know just how to fix this problem and do so every day on lots of cars! We began by removing all of the peeling or 'delaminating" clear coat, so that the old paint would not come through or compromise the new paint finish. Once the sanding had been completed we applied a primer sealer and refinished the car with our Enamel + UV protectant paint in the cars original color!

Almost Everything's Wreck of the Day brings tears to our eyes. The Aston Martin Rapide is quite possibly the loveliest 4 door sedan on the planet. . . and one of the very fastest too. This one hit an Audi SUV in Beijing.

You Don't See This Every Day-Bentley vs Panamera

Almost Everything's Wreck of the Day is a PAIR of wundercars bashed into each other―a likely sign of the apocalypse. How often do you see a Bentley Continental & a Porsche Panamera in the same month? How about on the same day? How about tailgating each other on the freeway. D'oh!

1995 Ferrari 348 vs Tree

Almost Everything's Wreck of the Day is a 1995 Ferrari 348 that was wrapped around a tree at high speed (yes, of course we meant the tree was speeding.) Amazingly, the driver walked away without any significant injuries. No word on how the tree fared or if drugs or alcohol were in the tree's system at the time of the collision. Police continue their investigation on rue Anatole in France.

Work Truck Color Change

Almost Everything's Car of the Day is a 2000 Ford F-150.  This work truck came to Almost-Everything looking old and green.  Instead of painting the truck back to its original color, the owner decided to paint it with a more recognizable industrial vehicle color "Snow White". Believe it or not some companies now require their subcontractors work vehicles to be painted white, luckily we have an extremely speedy turn-around time and will return your work vehicle back to you quickly and looking great!

2006 Toyota Camry Color Change

Almost Everything's Car of the Day is a 2006 Toyota Camry ex-taxi cab.  This color change is kind of self explanitory, this car had recently been retired from taxi service and found itself a new home, and the new owner is not a taxi driver.  Seeing that driving a taxi colored vehicle may give the wrong impression to pedestrians in need of transportation, the owner decided to have the car painted Bright Silver Metallic.  

1989 Buick Color Restoration!

Almost Everything's Car of the Day is a 1989 Buick Park Avenue.  This mid sized luxury car came to us with a very specific request; make it shiny, blue, and metallic again! The cars owner did alot of personal research on his personal time and discovered a color that he liked, a deep metallic blue from an early 1990's Honda! When we brought the car in it was dull and lifeless, we turned that around by first scuffing the car to "roughen up" the surface so the new paint could stick, masking off all remaining windows and trim pieces, and finally wiping down the fresh surface with a strong chemical to remove any oily contaminants.  When this Buick came out of our booth it was definately shiny, blue, and metallic once again!  Lastly we detailed and wiped down the interior before returning the car to its thrilled owners!

Lamborghini Gallardo LP 550 Wreck

Almost Everything's Wreck of the Day is a Lamborghini Gallardo LP 550. The story goes like this. . . an out of control truck was barreling down on the poor supercar and in an heroic attempt to avoid an accident, the driver swerved and crashed into the median. Yeah, we're a little dubious about the story too. This Lamborghini disaster is from Si Chuan, China.

Fender Bender Repair

Almost Everything's Car of the Day is a 2005 Honda Element. This handy little SUV came to us in need of some body repairs. Someone had recently backed into the front end of this poor Honda!  Luckily replacement parts are readily available to us, and we replaced the hood and the two hinges that support it. We then straightened and repaired a few bent sheetmetal parts so the new hood would align properly.  Since most aftermarket parts come in a satin black color, we repainted the new hood to match the rest of the vehicle and returned the car to its owner looking like that accident never happened!

1966 Ford Galaxy

Almost Everything's Car of the Day is a 1966 Ford Galaxy. This massive classic came to us in need of body work and a new paint job. Many of its panels had been damaged, dinged, and dented over the years making this beautiful convertible quite unsightly. We began our process by first repairing all of the damage that the owner specified for us to fix, straightening and adding a light "skim coat' of plastic filler to the repaired areas to completely smooth out the once-damaged panels. Next we worked out all of the rock chips and scratches all around the car, masked off all of the windows and trim, and applied a primer sealer to the freshly sanded surface.  Finally the entire exterior of the car was refinished using the cars original "color code" to mix the paint, which when finished made this Galaxy look extremely glossy and new again!
