Doing It Right--High Quality Paint Job

Car getting ready for top quality paint job at Almost Everything Auto Body.
This is what you do if you want a great paint job: you take the car apart so that paint can get into the nooks and crannies and so that paint does NOT get on the chrome, rubber, windows and other trim parts. Then you fix all of the little dings, dents and gouges. The owner of this 2002 Chrysler 300M takes very good care of his car but the years had taken their toll and up close it had chips, scratches and dings. When we finished, it looked like a new car again.

Radical Transformation

Rockin' custom 2003 Ford Mustang from Almost Everything Auto Body

Almost Everything's Car of the Day is a 2003 Ford Mustang that came in like a pony and left a raging stallion. The customer had a transformative vision for his car. It came in with peeling paint (delamination,) dents, faded headlights and bubbling window tint. We fixed the dents and installed a custom body kit that the customer purchased including a new hood, grill, headlights, taillights and fog lights and scoops on the quarter panels. We removed his old window tint and installed new tint all the way around. Finally, we painted the whole car in a custom blue base coat/clear coat paint. It looks awesome!

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.
