This 1994 Acura NSX was once the owners pride and joy but due to family commitments it sat outside on the owners driveway for a year, uncovered. The single stage paint oxidized and was in need of our paint correction services. The paint was ultra thin however and special care needed to be taken. Unfortunately along with the neglect were several large scratches that could not be repaired. We touched it up using the owners touchup paint but it wasn't a close match, so we did the best we could.

This gallery is just highlighting a few of our major transformations over the years. The cover photo story is the owner of this BMW parked his car on his driveway and his next door neighbor was doing construction work, concrete got spilled on the car, so the workers used paper towels to clean it up. When the owner complained, the workers told him they have a cousin who owns a body shop and could fix it...he instead came to us.
