1993 Jeep Wrangler Restored!

Almost Everything's Car of the Day is a 1993 Jeep Wrangler. This little off road machine came to our shop peeling, old, and crusty looking. The car's owner didnt want to spend his life savings on a rediculously priced paintjob on his old car. He was in the market for something fair-priced, and that looked great. He decided to bring the Jeep down to us where we applied our "Urethane Single Stage" paint in the car's original color after we completed some heavy sanding

1970 Pontiac GTO Complete Restoration!

Almost Everything's Car of the Day is a 1970 Pontiac GTO.  This Classic Muscle Car came to our shop *LOOKING* decent.  Under the seemingly okay finish unbeknownst to anybody, lay some serious, serious, bodywork to be done before painting.  The car had been "Repaired" before, years ago by a "Professional Hack Artist", nearly 100% of its body panels had been skimmed with an absurd amount of body filler, hiding the improper "Repairs" beneath it.  Once we had the car stripped, we discovered that the Quarter Panels, Doors, and many other miscellanious panels were in dire need of replacement.  Some panels were replaced using reproduction parts such as both Quarter Panels, the Decklid Filler, and a handful of other parts. Some panels were not so lucky, who would have thought a 44 year old collectors car would be so hard to find parts for?  The areas thatwere impossible to replace due to lack of parts were repaired, grafting recycled sheet metal in place of old rusted metal, and finishing with a much lighter skim of plastic filler.  Once the body was all taken care of, we applied a Primer, then block sanded the whole car, exposing every single imperfection. Once everything was straight and smooth we Painted the GTO with our "Performance Base, Clear" paint in its original color!

 You thought you were done reading didn't you? Well luckily for you the process didnt stop after painting, once the paint was dry we "Wet Sanded and Polished" the entire car to remove any dust specs, or contaminants found in freshly sprayed paint.  Also this process removes the natural texture called "Orange Peel" leaving the cars finish as smooth as glass, like a true show car's paint job should!

1971 Volkswagen Transporter 2 Tone Paint!

Almost Everything's Car of the Day is a 1971 Volkswagen Transporter Van.  This Fahrvergnügen came to our shop as a primered eye sore of a transporter, looking for the right color scheme at the right price! The Van's owner had acquired a toy car that we based the color combo off of, we duplicated the Two-Tone finish with our premium "Base Coat / Clear Coat paint, then finished off the classic look with some silver pinstriping!
