1994 Honda Civic Hatch Color Change!

Almost Everything's Car of the Day is a 1994 Civic Hatch! This car came into our shop as an employee's project and what an ugly, torn-up, terrible looking...thing it was. This car had been through many hardships, and had a rough past, one of its 364 different owners decided to try their hand at "bodywork" and ended up completely ruining a couple panels.  Even with its shady past, once we completed some light sanding and applied our sealer, finishing with our basic Enamel paint, this Civic looked nice and shiny again! The car's owner wanted a unique color that really stood out, so we found him a light Teal thats sure to turn heads!

1970 Pontiac GTO Complete Restoration!

Almost Everything's Car of the Day is a 1970 Pontiac GTO.  This Classic Muscle Car came to our shop *LOOKING* decent.  Under the seemingly okay finish unbeknownst to anybody, lay some serious, serious, bodywork to be done before painting.  The car had been "Repaired" before, years ago by a "Professional Hack Artist", nearly 100% of its body panels had been skimmed with an absurd amount of body filler, hiding the improper "Repairs" beneath it.  Once we had the car stripped, we discovered that the Quarter Panels, Doors, and many other miscellanious panels were in dire need of replacement.  Some panels were replaced using reproduction parts such as both Quarter Panels, the Decklid Filler, and a handful of other parts. Some panels were not so lucky, who would have thought a 44 year old collectors car would be so hard to find parts for?  The areas thatwere impossible to replace due to lack of parts were repaired, grafting recycled sheet metal in place of old rusted metal, and finishing with a much lighter skim of plastic filler.  Once the body was all taken care of, we applied a Primer, then block sanded the whole car, exposing every single imperfection. Once everything was straight and smooth we Painted the GTO with our "Performance Base, Clear" paint in its original color!

 You thought you were done reading didn't you? Well luckily for you the process didnt stop after painting, once the paint was dry we "Wet Sanded and Polished" the entire car to remove any dust specs, or contaminants found in freshly sprayed paint.  Also this process removes the natural texture called "Orange Peel" leaving the cars finish as smooth as glass, like a true show car's paint job should!

2003 Ford Crown Victoria Paint Job!

Almost Everything's Car of the Day is a 2003 Ford Crown Vic. This ex-police car came to our shop as a huge flat white freeway barge. The paint was old and faded, the car's owner wanted new paint but he wanted something much more menacing. He decided to be "unique" and had us paint his Crown Vic with our Enamel Single Stage paint in our deepest darkest blackest black that we have available! We are sure many people will love to see this car in their rear view mirror, as nothing says "I'm totally not a cop" and "Hey, let's be friends" quite like a Blacked out Crown Victoria with Push Bars and Spotlights!
