1999 Honda Accord Color Restoration!

Almost Everything's Car of the Day is a 1999 Honda Accord. This car had all of the typical "Honda Problems" things such as; Peeling or "delaminating" clear coat, a condition called Microchecking, and just an overall dull looking finish. We repaired these problems starting with some heavy sanding, some areas had to be taken down to the bare metal while other areas simply had the delaminating paint removed, this process creates a smooth, paintable surface. After our sanding was complete the car was sealed with our basic primer sealer to cover up any bare metal areas and give the new paint a surface to "bite" onto. Finally it was ready for new paint. We refinished the exterior with our Enamel + UV protectant paint in its original color and returned the car to its thrilled owner!

1937 Jaguar SS 100 Collision Repair!

Almost Everything's Car of the Day is our very own 1937 Jaguar SS 100.  It was an unfortunate day when we discovered our shop's pride and joy had been the victim of a brutal hit and run.  It appears that it may have been side swiped by a shoe, causing some gruesome damage.  The windsheild was broken, the front license plate brackets had been sheared clean off, and its rear left wheel was lost at the time of the accident. Luckily we recovered all of the parts missing off of the car and restored it back to its original condition! The car is on display in our office, come by and check it out today!

1998 Honda Civic Color Restoration!

Almost Everything's Car of the Day is a 1998 Honda Civic coupe. This economy cruiser came to our shop looking pretty wounded, its original paint had failed from years of exposure to the sun and other elements, and somebody actually started to sand the car and didn't finish the job! Luckily we know exactly how to fix these problems and do so on a daily basis. We began by lightly sanding the car to remove all of the chips and scratches, and sealing the freshly sanded surface with a primer sealer. Once all basic prep and sealing was completed we refinished the entire exterior of the car with our Enamel paint!

1967 Pontiac Firebird Re-Repaint

Almost Everything's Car of the Day is the same 1967 Firebird that we featured last week.  This was a peculiar case in which we refinished the car with the vehicles "era correct" paint color, a beautiful black cherry metallic, unfortunately this was not the color that the owner was expecting! At some point in its life this car was refinished using a different paint color, the code for this color was nowhere to be found on the car.  The last thing we want is an unhappy customer with the wrong color car, so we went ahead and painted the car again, this time matching the color as close as possible to the previous color!

2001 Toyota Corolla Color Restoration!

Almost Everything's Car of the Day is a 2001 Toyota Corolla. This car came to Almost-Everything with all of your typical "Toyota problems" things such as; Chips, scratches, Peeling or "Delaminating" paint and just overall faded looking dull paint. The first and most important step with any paint job was the removal of the damaged existing paint, we smoothed or "feathered" down the peeling paint edges so they would not show through the new paint surface. Once that was complete we sealed the car with a primer and refinished the entire exterior of the Corolla with our Enamel paint!

1967 Volkswagen Beetle Color Restoration

Almost Everything's Car of the Day is a 1967 Volkswagen Beetle.  This classic peoples car came to Almost-Everything with decent looking paint, however the surfaces beneath the paint were starting to fail or rust causing cracks, bubbles, and other unsightly blemishes.  We started the repairs by first going over and repairing all of the owner-specified areas such as; treating rust, repairing dings and a couple dents.  Once the body repairs were completed the car moved into masking where all of its windows, lights, trim pieces were masked off. Finally the car was moved into our booth where the entire exterior was refinished with its original color "Savanna Beige" in our Enamel paint grade!

2010 Toyota Prius Color Change!

Almost Everything's Car of the Day is a 2010 Toyota Prius.  This gas sipper came to Almost-Everything with some unsightly damage on many different surfaces all around the car.  Instead of going panel by panel repainting only the areas that were damaged, the owner opted to refinish the entire exterior of the car with our Enamel paint!

1995 Dodge Caravan Color Restoration!

Almost Everything's Car of the Day is a 1995 Dodge Caravan. This work van came to Almost Everything with its original paint in shambles. A good majority of it had been sanded off in preparation for new paint. Unfortunately the surface would not have looked too smooth if we had simply painted over the existing surface repairs. We corrected this by sanding all of the surfaces clean and smooth. Once that had been completed we masked off all windows, lights and trim, and finally refinished the van with our Enamel paint in the van's original color!

1967 Pontiac Firebird Color Restoration!

Almost Everything's Car of the Day is a 1967 Pontiac Firebird. This classic muscle car came to Almost-Everything looking pretty beat. There were rust holes in some body panels, old bodywork that was not too interested in looking great anymore and its paint had faded from years of being outside in the sun. We began our restoration by replacing the unusable rear right body panel with a new reproduction panel made specifically for rusted/damaged areas which was provided to us by the car's owner. Once that was completed we began smoothing and "re-skimming" over the old body work so it would not show through the cars new upcoming paint job. Once the specified areas were smooth, we applied a primer sealer and finally repainted the entire exterior of the vehicle with our Urethane + Integrated Clear Coat paint!
