Integra JDM Conversion Paint

Overall paint job at Almost Everything Auto Body on a JDM conversion Integra.

Our customer gets all the credit for the conversion to Japan Domestic Model (JDM) bodywork on this Integra. But we were happy to recondition delaminating (peeling) paint and refinish the car with a nice, single-stage paint.

Acura Complete Car Paint Job

Acura CL after complete car painting at Almost Everything Auto Body

This do-it-yourselfer repaired their car at home and asked us to refinish it with a durable, single-stage urethane paint. Reconditioning old, bad paint is hard work. You need to have good tools and know what you are doing for things to turn out well. This customer saved a lot of money and ended up with a great looking car.

Acura NSX--The New Benchmark

Acura NSX GT3 spins out at Laguna Seca Raceway.

We got to drive the new Acura NSX this weekend. The 1990 NSX redefined what a supercar could be. The 2017 NSX does it again--the new benchmark. It accelerates like a racing bike, sips fuel like an Accord, eats any piece of pavement with great style, comfort and ease.

We got an extended test drive in the mountain roads near Laguna Seca Raceway during the Pirelli World Challenge as the Acura NSX continued its awesome rookie year in GT3 against Aston Martin, Audi R8s, BMW, Cadillac , Corvette, Dodge Viper, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati, McLaren, Mercedes Benz, Nissan GT-R and Porsche.

Art St. Cyr, President of Honda Performance Development, and John Watts, Sr. Manager for NSX Performance Team, chatted with us over lunch about the car and successes they've had so far (most laps led of any manufacturer, 5th place finish in its very first race and ranked well in virtually every race.)

Is there a flaw with the NSX? Maybe it is too good. . . it makes even me look like a brilliant and ridiculously fast driver. I want this car!

Thanks to Kobi Eshun for great photography.

Headlight Restoration

Yellow, faded headlamps look bad and are unsafe. Restore them to jewel-like clarity for a fraction of replacement costs. Almost Everything polishes the damaged surface then rebuilds the layer with a tough new coating of clear epoxy resin. We DO NOT use quick-fix chemicals that cause permanent damage to the lights.

Before:
One headlight is faded, yellow and cloudy before restoration.

After:
Headlights are clear and bright after cleaning & polishing at Almost Everything Auto Body.

Before:

After:

Note: There are cheap chemical treatments promoted for faded lights. We have found that these chemical treatments look good for a short time but wear off. Worse, the chemicals eat into the surface of the light and cause microscopic cracks or "crazing." Then the lights look worse than before. Almost Everything's restoration process cannot fix the damage cause by these chemical treatments. So we recommend against them.

Acura Collision Repair

Dented door on Acura RL before repairs at Almost Everything Auto Body

Today's Car of the Day is an Acura RL that was hit on the side. Farmer's Insurance paid to have the exterior door panel replaced and factory paint applied to the door and blended onto the adjacent panels. Of course we removed all of the chrome, weatherstrips, mouldings and lights to prevent paint from getting on them.
