Car of the Day - 1991 Chevrolet S10 Pick-up truck with 2-tone paint job

Today's car of the day is a 1991 Chevrolet pick-up truck that came in for a 2-tone paint service with single stage paint. Almost Everything Autobody sanded and painted the entire truck with the original colors used by the manufacturer. Almost Everything Autobody painted the entire truck the red color first and allowed for the paint to cure for 3 weeks before painting the white parts. Single stage paint services require a wait of several weeks for paint to cure before sanding the surface and masking (covering) the areas not to be painted. This process can save hundreds of dollars and the results are well worth it. This process can also be done all at the same time if a 2-stage paint service is done instead of single stage, but will cost a little more.

2001 Mercedes Benz S430 with Cloudy Yellow Headlights

Yellow, Hazy Headlight before Restoration at Almost Everything Autobody
Today's customer had a gorgeous Mercedes Benz S430 in great condition except for the headlights which were pitted, yellow and hazy. The customer hated the way they looked and how performance at night was diminished. So he brought his car to Almost Everything Autobody specifically for headlight restoration. He had been quoted $100-$250 for this work at other shops and thousands of dollars for headlight replacement.
The same Headlight after Restoration at Almost Everything Autobody
Almost Everything's price was dramatically lower for the same work. And we completed it the same afternoon. When Almost Everything Autobody restores a headlamp we actually resurface the lens using special pneumatic micro polishing machines, very fine abrasives, the highest quality polishes and a bit of artistry. That's why our results look so much better. And because we do so many, our cost is significantly less than everyone else.

Car of the Day - 2009 Mazda 5 with Collision Damage & Free Rental Car

Today's car was backed into by a U-Haul truck. It put a huge dent in the driver's door and caused the door to be mis-aligned so that it would not close properly. The U-Haul driver did the right thing and notified the owners of the vehicle about the damage and offered to pay for the repairs. The owners of the vehicle got several quotes and decided to bring their car to Almost Everything for several reasons including the lowest price as a reward to the U-Haul driver for his honesty:
  • Best Warranty
    • Lifetime warranty on paint
    • Honored at approx. 500 Almost Everythings across USA, Canada & Mexico
  • Fast Service--the job was completed in just a few days
  • Lowest Price
Almost Everything replaced the door panel with a new one from Mazda, repaired the door frame to correct the alignment problem, removed all of the trim, lights & mouldings around the area to be repainted to achieve the best paint job, matched the factory paint. We also provided a 5 day free rental car allowance. The customer was able to get their rental car from our shop and drop the rental car back at Almost Everything when we completed work on their car. The owner said "You did a wonderful job." Thank you!

Car of the Day - 1995 Toyota Corolla with Flat Black Auto Paint Service

Today's car of the day is a 1995 Toyota Corolla that came to us in need of a paint job. The customer decided to change the color to a Flat Black. Almost Everything Autobody sanded all the peeling and faded paint that the car had and put a full coat of sealer. Almost Everything Autobody used its new single-stage paint process to create a durable but inexpensive Flat Black finish, using a special kit to make the Flat Black effect.

These flat black paint jobs are called a variety of names:

  • Flat Black
  • Matte Black
  • "Murder" Black
  • Hot Rod Black

Car of the Day - 1998 Buick Regal Color Change and Dent Repairs

Today's Buick had a series of dents in the fender and a bunch of peeling paint (also called delaminating paint.) Since the owner had to paint the whole car, he wanted to get a little bit different red than was on the car. He saw a Honda CRX that we had just painted in a great, original Honda Red and decided he wanted to have the same color.

He had the right idea. Similar to the experience many people have when they paint their house, a color that looks great as a small sample often looks terrible on a whole house, or a whole car. We feel so bad when a customer sees their freshly painted car and says, "Wait! That's not the color I picked. It is too orange!" or "Too bright." Then we show them that it matches the sample they picked.

So Almost Everything recommends that customers find a car that they like the color. We can match 99% of the colors on the road with our computerized paint system. Just tell us the year, make, model & name of the color (or the manufacturer's color code if available.)
