Hyundai Elantra vs Fence

Collision damage from fence on Hyundai Elantra at Almost Everything Auto Body.
We see at least a couple of cars each year that have gone through a fence. The damage is not usually as severe as when vehicles hit each other but the damage covers more area. These accidents happen when drivers swerve to avoid something, hit the gas instead of the brake, unattended cars not set to park, etc. In this case we replaced the bumper, headlights, fog light, fender liners, air intake duct that was mounted in the corner of the bumper. We also repaired and repainted the hood.

Mazda 3 Bumper Repair

Mazda 3 with crushed bumper & 3-stage Soul Red paint before repairs at Almost Everything Auto Body.
Mazda 3 bumper was crushed in a parking lot incident. We replace the bumper and a broken reflector. This Mazda has a premium, 3-stage paint that is hard to match. Even in the "before" photos you can see that the original bumper color does not exactly match the rest of the car. In these situations we recommend blending (or fading) paint onto the adjacent panels to better hide this color mis-match. Or, as this customer chose, you can keep cost lower if you are able to tolerate a slight color difference.

Before:

Note original slight color mis-match on rear bumper cover at the time the customer dropped off the vehicle. Bumpers can often be a slightly different color than the rest of the car due to differences in plastic vs. metal parts. This difference is even greater on 3-stage (also called "tri-stage" or "candy") paints.

2012 Honda Civic Collision Repair

2013 Honda Civic with auto body damage before repairs at Almost Everything Auto Body.

We replaced the fender and mirror and fixed the dent on the door. We often explain to customers what the difference is if we repair vs. replace a part. In this case, the customer was paying for repairs themselves. Replacing the fender resulted in a better quality repair and also cost less than trying to repair it. On the other hand, it was far less expensive to repair the door than to replace it. Feel free to ask us why you should choose one option over the other. We always provide honest recommendations from both a quality and cost perspective. If an option is both better quality and less expensive, that is the option we will always recommend.

Auto Body Repairs on Lexus with 3-Stage Pearl Paint

2019 Lexus ES300h before repairs at Almost Everything Auto Body.
A brand new Lexus ES300h came to us for collision repairs. We replaced the hood, bumper, headlamps, radiator, A/C condenser, cooling fan, collision avoidance sensor and damaged structural components. The car has a beautiful 3-stage "candy" paint job (also called tri-coat paint.) These type paints look dramatic because 3 different paint processes are used to add depth, shimmer and highlights. The extra paint steps also mean that the paint is much more difficult to match and takes a very skilled painter.
