2008 Toyota Prius "De-Taxified"

Almost Everything's Car of the Day is a 2008 Toyota Prius.  This car began its life as a blue vehicle, when purchased by a taxi comany all of that changed, it was painted white with gold to match the companies colors of business. After retirement this car seeked an overhaul, the owner came to us looking for a black paint job, and decided to change the color to Honda's "Nighthawk Black Pearl" in our basic Enamel paint for a long lasting shine that didnt break the bank!

2013 Ferrari F12 Put Out to Pasture

Almost Everything's Wreck of the Day is a brand new Ferrari F12 Berlinetta out for a test drive along the scenic lake front of the small town of Breukeleveen, Netherlands. Regio14.nl reports that the driver and his grandson were in the car when it lost control, rolled & hit a tree. Both occupants were able to exit the car without injuries.



We liked Paul Sliggers' comment on the Regio14.nl website that "The prancing horse is grazing." And Ton de Ruijter quipped, "Very fast, but do you have this in green. . . ?"

1999 Subaru Impreza 2.5 RS Painted!

Almost Everything's Car of the Day is a 1999 Subaru Impreza 2.5 RS.  This daily driver rally car came to Almost Everything in need of lots of help in the cosmetics department. The original paint was peeling, faded and ugly, and there were plenty of imperfections around the cars body such as dings, dents and unfortunately plenty of Rust! We began by repairing the rust hole in the left quarter panel, and straightening the decently-sized dent of the passengers front fender.  Once the requested repairs were completed we moved it into sanding where the peeling paint was removed, and all of the rock chips were smoothed.  With the body straight and the paint sanded smooth the car was painted with its new coat of Enamel paint in our brightest, purest whitest white that we have available!

BMW E30 Bodywork, Paint, Customization!

6 Months Ago:
Almost Everything's Car of the Day is what started out as a 1988 BMW 325i.  This car belongs to one of our employees and has been a headache...err...project of his for the past 4 years! The car began as a faded red/pinkish automatic old lady cruiser. Over time it was slowly "frankensteined", becoming an evil little death trap. The motor and drive train are up to decent satisfactory-ish levels (not really.) However a recent rear end collision damaged the bumper, and the body was ready for a new paint job. He decided on refinishing his BMW with a Chevrolet Corvette color called "Torch Red" in our basic Enamel Single Stage paint grade!

2003 Honda Civic Exterior Re-Paint!



















Almost Everything's Car of the Day is a 2003 Honda Civic LX.  This car came to our shop as most Hondas do; Faded, Peeling, Chipping and Ugly. This was a very basic paint job, all repairs of dents and surface imperfections were declined, leaving us to complete only our "basic" prep.  We cleaned the car with a chemical to remove all stuck-on contaminants, scuffed the exterior with an abrasive hand pad, and masked off all of the windows, lights, and other trim pieces. Finally the car was ready for paint, we applied a primer sealer and layed on the fresh coat of "Honda Nighthawk Black Pearl" Enamel paint!
