A Nightmare with a Happy Ending

Imagine you wake up in the morning and head out to your vehicle, only to find that your pride and joy has been horribly, horribly vandalized. This was the case for a recent customer of ours. Using a key, the vandal had written obscenities all over the truck, slashed the upholstery and busted the dashboard to pieces. Even the door panels on the inside weren’t safe from damage. They had absolutely destroyed the vehicle overnight.


We took this project on and completely restored the vehicle’s condition to better than new. The gouged body and paint were restored carefully by our experts and full attention to detail was given to the entire vehicle, including the upholstered seats and interior panels that had been so badly damaged. This customer’s story ended up being an amazing way to showcase our capabilities, as we handled each and every obstacle within our own shop. We did not sublet out anything, showing you that we really can do it all!


When the damage is done, and you are left feeling humiliated and violated by the destruction, lean on us! We can help ease the stress that these kinds of terrible experiences bring about by taking care of the A-to-Z for you. All you have to do is call, and we can arrange to tow, handle the insurance companies, and everything else so that you don’t have to. Take your stress to the golf course, slopes, trails… anywhere else, and let us roll up our sleeves and do what we do best.


We know that experiences like these can be extremely stressful and awful. At JP’s, we believe in catering to our customers and ensuring that you leave happier than you were when you came in. We absolutely pride ourselves on it! So, when life gives you lemons…come see us! We make a mean lemonade!





Holding Higher Standards

We recently had a customer bring their vehicle into our shop in a state of desperation after their insurance company told them they had to take it to one of their “preferred” shops. So, trusting in the advice of their insurance company, they took it to a dealership that was on the “preferred” list, and there they had an incredibly terrible experience. The vehicle was returned to them with (and I kid you not) double-sided tape, hot glue, and random screws holding it together! None of the body lines matched up. The front bumper was literally hot glued on. It was a mess. The customer tried three times to get the dealership to right the wrong and on the third try, the dealership told the customer that there was “nothing they could do” for them anymore. Unbelievable, right?

This is where JP and his team flew in with their flapping capes of glory and saved the day! During disassembly of the vehicle, our team discovered just how bad this situation actually was. We were just as shocked as the customer to find such an outright mess hidden under the panels, hood, and bumpers. Our standards are much higher than this, and yours should be too.

Insurance companies may lead you to believe that you have to take your vehicle where they tell you to, but this is deceptive and it is, in fact, illegal. You have the right to take your vehicle anywhere you like, so skip the duct tape, glue and cut corners! Come see us and get it done right the first time!




JP’s tips

I was talking to a friend of mine the other day about the subject of removing bug guts from the front of your car, motorcycle, RV, etc. It’s simple folks and called a magic eraser. Just wet the area with soap and water, then just whip over the area with the magic eraser and… magic! No more bugs and it will not hurt your paint. If they are really bad, soak your car down and leave the front for last so that by the time you get to it, the bugs have softened a little and they will come off easier.
