2009 Toyota Camry XLE- Overall paint job & Headlight restoration

 This customer brought in their 2009 Toyota Camry for an overall paint job and to get the headlights restored. We also repaired the rear bumper of the gouges it had. The customer decided on correcting the Microcheck and Delaminating paint. He also wanted to change the color to Sherwin Williams 42086 "Gloss Black". This car has the Enamel+UV protection paired with a basic sealer to aid the durability of the paint. Lastly we did the headlight restoration to the right headlight giving this car a total makeover!

2000 Lexus GS400- Insurance Coverage and Bodywork

 This customer was working with their insurance to fix damage that was located on the right quarter panel, rear bumper, and replaced a molding on the rear bumper. The shop worked on the quarter panel to make it line up correctly with the rest of the body panels. The rear bumper was also repaired and color matched to the rest of the vehicle. The customer requested a headlamp restoration for an extra cost to the customer, doesn't it look brand new? A clear coat was added to make the repair seamless and it was ready to be back on the road!

Dents, Paint & Headlamp Restore on Toyota Minivan

New paint and shiny clear restored headlights from Almost Everything Auto Body.

After 10+ years of use this Toyota Sienna had a few noticeable wounds. The owner had us fix dents and repaint the entire minivan with a durable, reasonably priced, urethane single-stage paint. We also restored the headlights.

Before:
There is a dent near the taillight and the bumper is held on with duct tape.

After:
The dent is gone and so is the need for duct tape on the bumper.

Before:

A New Car at 5% of the New Car Price

Delaminating (peeling) paint on before complete car paint job.

Today we feature a great car with low miles but its age was really showing in the paint and headlights. The owner's objective was to get a "new" car without the new car payment. So he changed the color, restored the headlights and fixed the delaminating or peeling paint & clear coat. He chose our Urethane Single Stage paint for a durable but economical finish.

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.

One of Our All Time Favorites, 1992 Lexus SC300 Overall Paint Job

Stunning Lexus SC300 after complete car auto paint at Almost Everything Auto Body.

The 1991-2000 Lexus SC is one of the best and most beautiful cars ever made (and in the interest of full disclosure, we think Lexus went the opposite direction for the 2001-2010 SC.) That is why this example is our Almost Everything Car of the Day. We fixed dents and rust, replace a few parts, feathered out any chips & scratches, then repainted the whole car in a new color using our Urethane 2-stage, Base Coat-Clear Coat paint. To top it off, we restored the headlights to their original clarity. We think the results are spectacular.
