Repair Dented Door and Paint Whole Car

Dented door before collision repairs at Almost Everything Auto Body.

Almost Everything's Car of the Day is a 2000 Chrysler Cirrus that was hit on the side. The top of the car was also faded and had started to peel. So the owner decided to paint the whole car at the same time she repaired the dent on the door. She chose our durable, single-stage Urethane paint.

Delaminating Paint & Microchecking Paint on Honda Accord

Delaminating or peeling clear coat on Honda Accord

Almost Everything's Car of the Day is a Honda Accord with 2 paint problems. Sun has damaged the clear coat causing it to delaminate and peeling. The trunk and rear panels have different age damage called microchecking where the paint and primer are shrinking causing lots of microscopic cracks. We removed the damaged paint and primer layers, applied new primer-sealer and repainted the whole car.

Herd of Miuras

Herd of Lamborghini Miuras by Steven Haas
Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance 2016

Steven Haas sent us this amazing photo from this year's Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance in Florida. He says, "It's like a bag of M&Ms spilled into the grass." I doubt the Lamborghini factory could have had this many completed Miuras at one time when production was in full swing (early 1970s.) At roughly $2,000,000 each, this photo contains $12+ Million worth of Lamborghini Miuras plus a little more for rounding error in the form of a blue Aventador in the background.

I had the pleasure of attending the Pebble Beach Concours with Steve a few years ago. This gentleman knows cars and seemingly every living soul in the auto business: executives from major auto manufacturers, the writers and editors of all the car magazines, the people who restore & insure classic cars. He is currently Director, Financial Services at Hagerty Classic Cars so look him up to protect your valuable classic.

Dent on 1995 Thunderbird

Ford Thunderbird collision damage before repair at Almost Everything Auto Body

A 1995 Ford Thunderbird is our Car of the Day. It was hit from an odd angle that caused a dent at the top corner of the quarter panel. The customer replaced the taillight himself before bringing the car to us (he wanted to have brake lights!) We repaired the dent, aligned the quarter panel and trunk and repainted with factory matched paint.
