Reviving Old 2-Tone Cars

2-Tone vehicle repainted in single color at Almost Everything Auto Body.

In the 1980s and 1990s two-tone cars were all the rage and showed that a vehicle was a premium model. Multiple colors on a car takes more material and labor. So it naturally costs more. But what do you do when one of these 20-30 year old cars needs to be repainted? Options include repainting both colors, repainting only the top color which is often more faded, painting only the bottom color which can be more prone to scrapes, or repainting the entire car in just one color. Almost Everything's Car of the Day is a 1996 Mazda MPV that was faded & peeling on top and scraped on the bottom. So both of the 2-tone colors had problems. The owner decided to paint the entire vehicle one color to save money and recover a vehicle that still drove well but looked a mess.

1990 Mazda Miata Paint Job with Bodywork!

Almost Everything's Car of the Day is a 1990 Mazda Miata. This race inspired roadster came to our shop looking hacked up and discolored. The fender flares were somewhat moulded to the body and needed some "Massaging" to make them smoother, and fit better against the cars body.  We smoothed and finished the flares, scuffed up the old paint (after removing the miata hard top and mirrors) and painted the car the purest, brightest white we could find, while the hardtop and mirrors were painted the blackest black!

1991 Cadillac De Ville "Half Paint Job"

Almost Everything's Car of the Day is a 1991 Cadillac De Ville, this old luxury car came to our shop faded, peeling, chipped and just overall old looking.  Since this car came from the factory with a "Two Tone" paint scheme, the owner wanted to keep that exact look, but did not want to pay truck loads of his hard earned cash to duplicate it!  We suggested to keep the original lower silver portions in their factory paint, while we repainted just the top metallic blue portions of the car with our Base Coat / Clear Coat paint.  We got this cruiser back to its owner looking just like new again, and even managed to save him some money!

2006 Ford Mustang

Almost Everything's Car of the Day is a 2006 Ford Mustang, the owner had some repairs done which included replacing the rear bumper, instead of matching it to his stock grey paint he decided to go with a much more agressive paint scheme; deep non-metallic black, with two shelby inspired racing stripes.

1958 Edsel Ranger 2-Tone

Almost Everything's Car of the Day is a 1958 Edsel Ranger 2-door coupe. Edsel is famous for being a marketing disaster but we were very pleasantly surprised at the advanced features of the car. The doors have flip-up chrome rain shields that deploy when you open the doors. The transmission uses push-buttons in the steering wheel like the most expensive cars being introduced today.
