Color Change from Green to Blue

Atomic green Prius before repainting at Almost Everything Auto Body

Atomic Green, while arguably very cool, was not the original color of this Prius and the current owner wanted a return to dark blue. We repainted the entire car with an economical single-stage enamel paint.

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.

Toyota Prius Bumper & Tailgate Repair

Rear bumper and tailgate damage before repairs at Almost Everything Auto Body.

We fixed a dent in the tailgate, replaced the bumper and repaired the rear body on this 2013 Toyota Prius. A tricky element is the 3-stage pearl white paint. 3-stage paints achieve special shimmer and highlight effects by stacking translucent color layers on top of each other. Minor variations in color or thickness of a layer can result in poor color match. For this reason all good body shops will tell you that color matching on a 3-stage paint is difficult or impossible and that blending (or fading) paint onto the adjacent panels is required for the repair to look less noticeable. Even with blending, there can be differences between paint applied to plastic vs. metal. So most insurance companies will not cover blending for bumpers and you may notice that the bumper color does not exactly match the rest of the car.

Bumper Scrapes

Scrapes and peeling paint on the front bumper of this 2012 Toyota Prius made it look a lot older than it should. We reconditioned the delaminating paint and repainted the bumper with factory matched paint.

Complete Car Paint Job on 2000 Corolla

2000 Toyota Corolla after complete paint job at Almost Everything Auto Body

The paint on this older Corolla was delaminating (peeling) due to sun exposure. So the car looked pretty bad. But as everyone knows, a Corolla runs forever. So the customer put an inexpensive, single-stage paint job on the car and is now looking good for many more years of driving.
