Almost Everything'sCar of the Day is a 2005 Acura TL in need of collision repair. This crashed commuter came to our shop missing half of its face due to a rogue curb visciously assaulting the innocent Acura. We worked with the owner's insurance company after inspecting the damage, to ensure all of the repairs were done properly and professionally. After lots of part replacement, painting, and chassis repairs this TL was finally ready to go back to its owner looking like the accident never happened!
Almost Everything'sCar of the Day is a 2008 BMW M3 with collision damage including dents on the driver's door and quarter panel. We replaced the door shell with a genuine BMW part, repaired the dents and scrapes on the quarter panel and blended new paint onto the fender just so there would be a seemless paint match. Can you tell the car was ever in an accident?
Almost Everything'sCar of the Day is a 2002 Porsche 911. This timeless sports car came to our shop looking very un-porsche-like. Its hood's paint decided that it had enough and peeled, leaving a giant greyish white splotch in its wake! We repaired the unsightly problems on this car by sanding out all of the imperfections, spraying and "blending" some factory-type waterbased paint on the effected areas, and finishing the entire front end of the car with a thick protective clear coat! Once painting was complete we wet sanded and polished the panels so that the paint texture would match, leaving this Porsche looking flawless and new again!
Almost Everything'sCar of the Day is a collision repair on a 1996 Ford Thunderbird. The car came in with a deep dent on the passenger side quarter panel. We pulled out the dent and repainted the area for a seemless repair.
Almost Everything'sCar of the Day is a fun restoration project for us, especially because the Datsun 510 BRE replica was prepared by Larry Oka for a local car buff. Larry Oka is a local legend. He runs a racing school at Sears Point and says he was involved in racing the BRE Datsuns in the original Trans Am series. Brock Racing Enterprises (BRE) campaigned these little monsters to the 1971 and 1972 SCCA Trans Am championships. Our version mimics the #68 car.
The owner of this car allowed us to show it at a show this year and let us drive it to and from the event. It was a hoot. The car is very quick, the engine is roarty and the handling razor sharp.
Almost Everything'sWreck of the Day--the latest in our long running series of what NOT to do with a Ferrari. Long envious of Lotus' lock on the supercar/submarine market, a driver in China decided to develop his own, Ferrari-based super-sub. As can be seen in these photos, it is still in need of development.
