2005 Honda Civic Si Revamp

2005 Honda Civic Si with new Championship White paint job from Almost Everything Auto Body.
A young driver and his parents wanted his first car to be something a little special. So they took a nice Honda Civic Si that was looking a little old and made it look new. The Honda Championship White paint is a nice touch and a tribute to Honda's first Formula 1 victory in 1960.

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.

Scraped Bumper Repair & Paint

Scraped bumper at Almost Everything Auto Body for repairs & repaint.

The bumper on this Honda CR-V was scraped. We disassembled the bumper, repaired the scrapes and restored the factory paint. The customer chose to also replace broken fog lights at the same time because most of the installation labor was already included in the disassembly of the bumper. It saved them about $100.

1995 Honda Accord with Microchecked Paint

Almost Everything Auto Body technician masking a car prior to paint.

This 1995 Honda Accord was still performing well when it came to us in 2019. But the paint looked like hell! The paint had develop a problem called microchecking. Over time microchecking leads to paint failure and rusting. It is characterized by small cracks (or "checks") in the paint. They look like lots of small razor cuts and are usually the result of temperature extremes. So it is common to first see the problem over the car's radiator where the paint experiences the most extremes of heating and cooling. The cracks allow water to get under the paint so metal body parts start rusting.

This post provides a very nice photo progression of the car going through sanding and masking processes in the shop.

Before:
Stripping a car is a lot of work. This vehicle owner started then turned the job over to us when he realized how much more he needed to do.

Would You Drive 100 Miles to get Work Done on Your Car?

2004 Honda Civic before repairs at Almost Everything Auto Body.

We are always grateful (and sometimes astonished) at the distances some of our customers drive to work with us. This car was driven from Elk Grove, over 100 miles from us. The customer had done a lot of repairs himself and wanted us to just paint the car. We were happy to oblige. The customer chose our economical Enamel paint and to his credit, the results were quite good!

Honda CR-V Auto Body Repairs

Collision Damage on Honda CR-V before repairs at Almost Everything Auto Body

The damage to this CR-V was not covered by the owner's insurance. So we worked with the owner to fix all the safety issues and make the car look presentable again. To keep repairs within budget, the owner asked not to fix a dent on the fender. We agreed to leave the dent because it did not pose a safety issue.
