Doing It Right--Restoration of a 1995 Toyota Supra

Body technician finishing dent repairs on 1995 Toyota Supra at Almost Everything Auto Body

The 1995 Toyota Supra is one of the most beautiful cars ever made. It was hugely expensive and as a result, it was rare even when in production. Like the Chevrolet Corvette, Dodge Viper and Nissan GT-R, it was a supercar from a company that otherwise made fairly pedestrian vehicles. The owner of this example brought it back to its original glory. He disassembled the car himself, had us fix all the dings, dents and rust, then had us paint it with our urethane 2-stage technology base coat-clear coat.

This 2015 Toyota Camry had less than 200 miles on the odometer when an accident happened. The fender, bumper, brackets and fender liner were damaged. When we disassembled the car we also found that the headlamp was broken and had to be replaced. Insurance covered the cost of the repairs and damaged parts were replaced with original Toyota parts.

Complete Auto Paint Job on 1994 Camaro Convertible

Whole car paint on 1994 Chevy Camaro Convertible from Almost Everything Auto Body

Almost Everything's Car of the Day is a 1994 Chevy Camaro Convertible. We painted the whole vehicle with an economical enamel single stage paint with an added UV protectant to help shield the paint from the sun's ultraviolet rays. The car belongs to one of our regular customers and to keep paint costs to a minimum, he reconditioned damage to the old paint (chips & delamination that causes peelint) before he dropped it off with us. He also took off the rear spoiler and plans to put it back on himself.

Fender Bender

Dented fender and scraped bumper on 2012 Rav4 before collision repairs at Almost Everything Auto Body

Today's fender bender is on a 2012 Toyota RAV4. The customer has insurance but wants to avoid an increase in her insurance premium so she's paying for repairs herself. To keep the costs low, she has chosen to keep the existing bumper, even though it has some minor damage. She also chose not to do a paint blend on her door. We've told her that the repairs won't be perfect and to expect the new paint to be slightly different than the older paint. In the end she was happy with her choices and the cost for the repair was affordable.

Have you ever had your car keyed?

Key scratches on BMW 545i before painting at Almost Everything Auto Body

In our experience, "keying" a car is typically a case of random vandalism. It often feels like a personal violation and it may not be covered by your auto insurance. Almost Everything's Car of the Day is a very nice BMW 545i that was scratched on nearly every panel.
