A friend at BTM Motorwerks in Campbell presented us with this project. He had a 2004 Audi Allroad with original black paint that had started to oxidize & peel (delaminate.) To give the car a different look, he chose to change the color to an unusual and really cool (we think) gray. He also asked us to paint the bumpers the same color as the rest of the car for a really clean look. He chose urethane single stage paint as an economical but durable finish. We think the results are great.
The Audi S4 is one of our favorite cars. This example was hit by a truck. We replaced the door and part of the quarter panel, remanufactured the wheel, aligned the suspension and blended paint to the adjacent panels using factory-match paint.
Almost Everything'sCar of the Day is a 2013 Audi S4--a screaming sports sedan that we like a lot. This one had scratches on the front bumper. We repaired the scratches and repainted with original factory matched paint.
The greatest auto race in the world starts tomorrow, the 24 Hours of Le Mans. It's our favorite because since 1923, people have been racing whatever they could bring for a whole day without stopping. There have been cars taken straight off showroom floors: Porsches, Corvettes, Aston Martins, Jaguars, Ferraris, Maseratis, Lamborghinis, Bentleys, Lotuses, Cobras. And then there are the prototypes--the no holds barred version of racing that exists nowhere else. These are the fastest vehicles on the planet with bleeding edge technology that defines where automobiles will be decades in the future. Or not. Some of the ideas are downright weird and fail miserably. Racing doesn't get any better.
