2008 Pontiac Grand Prix Insurance Repair

Almost Everything's Car of the Day is a 2008 Pontiac Grand Prix. This car came to our shop with an insurance claim already written up and ready to be repaired. We can work directly with any insurance company, all we need are a couple signatures and a claim number! You can relax knowing that we are handling all of your repairs for you directly with your insurance company. This car was a fairly straight forward repair. Its entire front bumper assembly needed to be replaced. We obtained all of the replacement parts and matched them to the original black color with our factory quality paint!

2000 Honda Civic Overall Paintjob

Almost Everything's Car of the Day is this 2000 Honda Civic Sedan.  This greenish / greyish / whitish four-door came to Almost-Everything with an abundance of unfinished primer and plenty of unattravtive old paint.  We restored the looks of this car with our Enamel paint package, which includes all of the nesasarry prep to get paint onto a car;

1. A Chemical Cleaning to remove all stubborn stuck on road contaminants

2. Scuffing of all painted areas with an abrasive hand pad to promote paint adhesion

3. Masking of all windows, lights, and unpainted trim pieces.

4. Overall painting of the exterior.

5. A final bake in our oven to cure the new finish on!

1995 Acura Integra Type-R Replica

Almost Everything's Car of the Day is a 1995 Acura Integra. The owner of this import came to our shop looking for a very particular paint job; Phoenix Yellow from the "Integra Type-R." Since the actual Integra Type-R is a very rare car this ones owner decided to transform his into a replica. The car came to us with nothing remaining of its original paint, an outside source had performed all of the requested bodywork and applied a coat of some sort of primer sealer. We began with a chemical cleaning, removing all road contaminants like bugs, tar, etc. and scuffed the existing primer sealer with an abrasive hand pad. Naturally, most people dont like painted windows too much, so avoid counter that problem we masked off all of the windows to prevent overspray. After masking, the Integra was ready for our own coat of primer sealer and the new coat of Phoenix Yellow paint!

2011 Honda CR-V Accident Repair

Almost Everything's Car of the Day is a 2011 Honda CR-V. This little SUV came to our shop with parts dangling all over the place!  It had an unfortunate encounter with a fence the night before we began working on it! Sadly the front fender and trim moulding were unable to be revived by us, however we were able to obtain the exact same parts directly from Honda! We "refinished" or repainted the front right replacement fender, while blending paint onto the neighboring panels to avoid any obvious differences or "breaks" in color. Once all of the paintwork had been completed we re-assembled the car, washed the exterior and dusted off the dash, and finally returned it to its owner looking like new again!

2004 Toyota Prius Bumper Replacement!

Almost Everything's Car of the Day is a 2004 Toyota Prius. This gas hog came to our shop with an unsightly torn front bumper cover and a broken grille! Typically when a panel gets damaged such as this one there are a couple ways of going about repairs. The first option is a repair, using the existing parts (or what remains of them) and repairing them with different chemicals, fillers, etc. The second option is a bit more straight foreward, replacing the damaged part with a new or recycled one. In this particular case the bumper cover was torn so severely the cost of repairing the existing one easily outweighed the cost of an aftermarket replacement. We removed the damaged parts and disposed of them responsibly, checking for additional damage and notifying the car's owner if anything unfit to re-use was discovered, obtained an aftermarket bumper cover and lower grille piece. After painting everything to match we reassembled the car and returned it to its owner looking like new again!

2002 BMW 325xi Collision Repair

Almost Everything's Car of the Day is a 2002 BMW 325xi. This luxury compact sedan came to our shop looking like it had gotten into a fight with a wall and lost! Its hood had been tweaked, headlight was broken and its radiator support had been pushed in a bit. Since this was a notoriously expensive to fix BMW and insurance was not going to cover the damage, it was an "Out of Pocket" repair. We saved the owner as much money as we could, replacing parts only as absolutely necessary and fixing or repairing most of what was already there! When all said and done this BMW came out of our shop looking like that little mishap had never even happened!

1964 Chevrolet El Camino Color Change

Almost Everything's Car of the Day is a 1964 Chevrolet El Camino. Unlike most of the cars that are featured on our page, this "Cruck" or Car-Truck came to our shop with what appeared to be a beautiful paint job. When we thoroughly inspected the car with the owner we did discover plenty of old, improper bodywork which was cracking and ruining the beautiful finish! This paint had been on this truck for nearly twenty years and the owner grew tired of the subtle red look, after we finished all of the body repairs we repainted the exterior with an aggressive bright orange for that old-school "High Performance Chevy" look!

1989 Camry Resurrection

Almost Everything's Car of the Day is a 1989 Toyota Camry. This car came to our shop as a dingy, faded, reddish four-door. This same exact car left our shop as a deep glossy metallic red sedan looking shiny and new once again! The owner decided to have us refinish the car in its original color with our Enamel paint grade, and perform our "basic prep" prior to paint. Our basic prep comes with all of the basic procedures to get paint onto your car! This includes a chemical wash, a light surface scuffing, masking of all unpainted parts such as windows, lights, and trim pieces, overall exterior painting in the cars original color, and a final bake in our oven to cure the new finish on for superior durability!

1994 Toyota Camry Re-Paint!

Almost Everything's Car of the Day is a 1994 Toyota Camry. We love Camrys. We have painted thousands of them. This Toyota didn't have the typical peeling, flaky paint problem, however it did have a lot of faded non-glossy matte looking paint. We performed all of our "basic prep" and repaired a little imperfection in the rear bumper that was bugging this car's owner for years. The entire exterior was repainted with our Enamel paint using the original Toyota color code and finally returned to its thrilled owner looking shiny and new again!
