This is what you do if you want a great paint job: you take the car apart so that paint can get into the nooks and crannies and so that paint does NOT get on the chrome, rubber, windows and other trim parts. Then you fix all of the little dings, dents and gouges. The owner of this 2002 Chrysler 300M takes very good care of his car but the years had taken their toll and up close it had chips, scratches and dings. When we finished, it looked like a new car again.
It was time for a change. Almost Everything'sCar of the Day is a 2007 BMW 328i that the owner changed from silver to gloss black. To make the transition clean, the owner chose to have the car disassembled so the new paint could flow into nooks and crannies and so there would not be overspray on lights and chrome. We removed the grills, door handles, mirrors, mouldings, fuel door and, of course, all of the lights and reflectors. We also painted the insides of the door jambs.
