2007 Ford Explorer Color Change!

Almost Everything's Car of the Day is a 2007 Ford Explorer "Sport Trac". This pint-sized pickup came to our shop as another average looking, every day common, silverish-tan truck.  The truck's owner was tired of blending in and decided to have our shop paint it with a tad bit brighter color.  The chosen paint color was Ford's "Grabber Orange" more commonly found on late 1960's and early 1970's High Performance Mustangs, in our "Urethane Single Stage" paint material!

2005 Mini Cooper S Paint Job!

Almost Everything's Car of the Day is a 2005 Mini Cooper S.  This hot hatch came to Almost-Everything as a multicolored...thing.  Luckily with auto paint being our specialty, we knew exactly what to do to get this Mini back on the road catching eyes as it is supposed to! The car's owner decided to have us repaint the car in its original black color, which we did after we completed all of our much needed prep work.  Every paint job that Almost-Everything offers comes with all of the "Basic" prep work.  We chemically clean the car to remove foreign contaminants, scuff the surface with an abrasive hand pad to promote adhesion of the new paint, and maskin off of all windows, lights, and trim. Once these steps are completed the entire exterior of the car is painted and finally baked in our massive oven to cure the new finish onto the car!

1937 Jaguar SS 100 Collision Repair!

Almost Everything's Car of the Day is our very own 1937 Jaguar SS 100.  It was an unfortunate day when we discovered our shop's pride and joy had been the victim of a brutal hit and run.  It appears that it may have been side swiped by a shoe, causing some gruesome damage.  The windsheild was broken, the front license plate brackets had been sheared clean off, and its rear left wheel was lost at the time of the accident. Luckily we recovered all of the parts missing off of the car and restored it back to its original condition! The car is on display in our office, come by and check it out today!

2010 Toyota Prius Color Change!

Almost Everything's Car of the Day is a 2010 Toyota Prius.  This gas sipper came to Almost-Everything with some unsightly damage on many different surfaces all around the car.  Instead of going panel by panel repainting only the areas that were damaged, the owner opted to refinish the entire exterior of the car with our Enamel paint!

1967 Pontiac Firebird Color Restoration!

Almost Everything's Car of the Day is a 1967 Pontiac Firebird. This classic muscle car came to Almost-Everything looking pretty beat. There were rust holes in some body panels, old bodywork that was not too interested in looking great anymore and its paint had faded from years of being outside in the sun. We began our restoration by replacing the unusable rear right body panel with a new reproduction panel made specifically for rusted/damaged areas which was provided to us by the car's owner. Once that was completed we began smoothing and "re-skimming" over the old body work so it would not show through the cars new upcoming paint job. Once the specified areas were smooth, we applied a primer sealer and finally repainted the entire exterior of the vehicle with our Urethane + Integrated Clear Coat paint!

1989 Buick Color Restoration!

Almost Everything's Car of the Day is a 1989 Buick Park Avenue.  This mid sized luxury car came to us with a very specific request; make it shiny, blue, and metallic again! The cars owner did alot of personal research on his personal time and discovered a color that he liked, a deep metallic blue from an early 1990's Honda! When we brought the car in it was dull and lifeless, we turned that around by first scuffing the car to "roughen up" the surface so the new paint could stick, masking off all remaining windows and trim pieces, and finally wiping down the fresh surface with a strong chemical to remove any oily contaminants.  When this Buick came out of our booth it was definately shiny, blue, and metallic once again!  Lastly we detailed and wiped down the interior before returning the car to its thrilled owners!

Wreck of the day!

Almost Everything's wreck of the day is this 2012 Rolls Royce Ghost, the Driver apparently thought it would be a grand idea to perform a real world test of the car's bouyancy. It did not float, however they did successfully hydro-lock the engine and create the worlds least comfortable Rolls Royce!

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