Parking Lot Pillar Strikes Again!

Porsche Cayenne hit by a concrete pillar before repairs at Almost Everything Auto Body.

Parking lot pillars are our nemesis. Every week one or two customers gets accosted by one of these concrete ogres. We worked with GEICO to replace the fender, front bumper, front spoiler, wheel arch moulding, side marker light and a bunch of brackets on this Porsche Cayenne.

Porsche 911 Sun Damage Re-Paint!

Almost Everything's Car of the Day is a 2002 Porsche 911. This timeless sports car came to our shop looking very un-porsche-like. Its hood's paint decided that it had enough and peeled, leaving a giant greyish white splotch in its wake! We repaired the unsightly problems on this car by sanding out all of the imperfections, spraying and "blending" some factory-type waterbased paint on the effected areas, and finishing the entire front end of the car with a thick protective clear coat! Once painting was complete we wet sanded and polished the panels so that the paint texture would match, leaving this Porsche looking flawless and new again!

Fremont's Paul Walker, Roger Rodas Tribute Meet

Almost-Everything's crew, as you can imagine, are a bunch of gear heads and are heavily into the local "Automotive Scene". "The Fast and the Furious" star Paul Walker and his freind Roger Roda's recent passing caused a giant shockwave through the car community, as they were a giant inspiration to many automotive enthusiasts. Recently plenty of meets and gatherings have been held in the local area, the largest being held at Fremont's Pacific Commons with easily over 1000 cars in attendance, all there to have a moment of silence for our "10-second-car-owing" childhood movie hero. Not all, but many of the cars pictured below were either painted by our shop, or have had work done by us. All photo credit belongs to Lower Standard's Ceasar Villasenor.

Porsche 911 Marianas

Porsche 911 sunken wreck

Almost Everything announces major automotive breaking news. We believe these photos prove beyond reasonable doubt that Porsche is developing a 911 for underwater use. Ing. Dr. Franz Helmut Martin von Düsseldorf says, "Porsche and, indeed, all of Germany, has felt the need to field a supercar-submarine ever since Lotus purportedly accomplished the feat for the James Bond movie "The Spy Who Loved Me." Our news follows billionaire Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk's announcement to also develop a road-going submarine based on the James Bond Lotus.

The tests are being secretly conducted in Jinan, China. Our keen spy photography network allowed us to obtain & provide these photos. Of course, Porsche has made no comment to us and has so far neither admitted nor denied working on a street racing submarine.

Almost Everything has nicknamed this 911 the "Marianas" after the unrivaled Pacific trench.

Here can be seen what Almost Everything has dubbed the "911 Marianas" emerging from a test dive.

Special thanks to our great friends at who provided the photos for this story (not to imply that they believe a word of it.)

24 Hours of Le Mans!

It's that time of year again, the oldest and greatest auto race in the world celebrates its 90th anniversary this weekend in Le Mans, France (June 23-24, 2013.) The race is fast and torturous. It is where the world's premier auto makers--Aston Martin, Audi, Chevrolet (Corvette), Chrysler (SRT Viper), Ferrari, Honda, Lotus, Mercedes-Benz, Nissan, Porsche, Toyota--come to show not only that they have the fastest, best handling, most advanced cars but in order to win, they must also be reliable and economical.

The race attracts top drivers including celebrity Patrick Dempsey who in past years has been a LeMans class leader. Audi once again captured the pole in 2013. Toyota was third fastest in qualifying with a hybrid prototype.

Unlike most races, these vehicles must run all-out for 24 hours straight without breaking down and with as few stops as possible. At 2013 speeds we can expect the leaders to travel more than 3000 miles (5000 km)
Aston Martin at 2013 24 Heures du Mans
NASCAR, Formula 1 and Indycar feature straights that can be a thousand feet long. LeMans features a straightaway that is 4 miles (6 km) long followed by a series of curves, hairpin turns and shorter straights.

Cars racing at 2013 24 Hours of LeMans
Porsche at 2013 24 Heures du Mans
Corvette & Viper at 2013 24 Heures du Mans
It is our favorite race at Almost Everything because the cars look like real cars and the technology is often a few years away from making the cars we drive everyday safer, more fun and better performing.

1987 Porsche 944 Color Restoration

Almost Everything's Car of the Day is a 1987 Porsche 944 Turbo.  This classic sports car came to Almost-Everything with mis-matched body panels, unfinished body work and downright ugly all over. The owner has a small fleet of beautiful cars, one of which was painted "tornado red", a color that fit this porsche much better than its original white! Before we could lay on our new paint, the owner requested that we finish the existing bodywork. We began by smoothing and skimming over the existing body filler, and recreating the lost body lines. Next we sanded out all of the rock chips and scratches, and masked off all of the cars windows, lights, and trim.  Once the prep work was finished, the car was sealed with a primer and finally painted with our Enamel paint!

You Don't See This Every Day-Bentley vs Panamera

Almost Everything's Wreck of the Day is a PAIR of wundercars bashed into each other―a likely sign of the apocalypse. How often do you see a Bentley Continental & a Porsche Panamera in the same month? How about on the same day? How about tailgating each other on the freeway. D'oh!

Bentley vs Panamera-Almost Everything Autobody's Wreck of the Day

Thanks to for the photos and alerting us, as always, to the destruction of another exotic car.

Champion Lewis Teams with Almost Everything Autobody

NASA 944 Spec Racer and 2011 Champion Steve Lewis had a race season's worth of "scrapes and bruises" repaired on his Porsche 944 at Almost Everything Autobody. Steve said "I got lots of comments about the quality of the paint job this weekend so I would expect to see some business coming your way. I'll continue to do what I can to preach your virtues." Thanks Steve. Steve just clinched the 2012 championship with his latest win at Sears Point (Sonoma Raceway). Congratulations!

2004 Porsche 911 GT3 Wreck

It's hard to tell from this photo but this was a 2004 Porsche 911 GT3. The remains are in Chicago. It looks to us like it flipped and rolled several times. Visit for details and pictures of other very expensive junk.
