It happens. Humans are very busy creatures. You have 100,457,933 things to do before the day is over, and sometimes those things that are piling up on the back burner get neglected. Like, for a long time. Things like getting your cavity filled, scrubbing your bathtub…. and cleaning and washing your car. Sound familiar? Let’s face it. We can always make more time by getting up earlier or staying up later, but that means dipping further into our preciously coveted sleep time, and who doesn’t love to sleep? So why not let us take one of those nagging things that you need to get done off of your to-do list for you?
$125 gets you a full detail and wash (complimentary when you have another service done with us), and this isn’t like any other car detail you’ve had before. I can attest to this personally, as I have very high standards and when I picked up my car after having the leaks in my power steering and coolant systems, and transmission fixed, I was in absolute shock. I have 2 young girls, I frequent muddy mountainous trails, camp as often as I can justify, and I have a dog. You can imagine the damage we can collectively do to the inside and outside of my poor car when working as a team. When I picked up my Subaru, my vehicle was cleaner than I had ever seen it. I almost walked right past it because I didn’t recognize it, sitting there in JP’s parking lot. Gone were the crayons and greasy little fingerprints on my windows, and the hair that my dog had shed all over was also missing. Even the air conditioning vents had been cleaned out, a part of detailing that even the high-end detail shops tend to skip. Not at JP’s!
You would think JP’s detailing technician had at some point graduated from Parris Island because their attention to detail is impeccable. They will steam-clean your mats, vacuum, clean all surfaces, windows, wash the exterior, and even shine your wheels and tires up for you. JP’s Collision Center offers shampooing, as well, if your carpets and upholstery are in need. (Pricing is based on how much time it will take to get all of the stains out.) Come and see what a superbly clean car, inside and out, really feels and looks like! Summer’s around the corner! Don’t be the one that is caught rolling around with something that looks like you drove it into Utah Lake and forgot about it for a month!
Update on the upcoming Car Show:
Date: Sunday, August 26th.
We now have a time designated, and it will go from 10:00 am until 3:00 pm (1000 – 1500, for those that prefer military time).
100% of donations will go to Operation Zero- Veteran Suicide Prevention PCR, benefitting the fight against Veteran suicide and raising awareness for the cause. More information can be found at https://www.facebook.com/Operation-Zero-Veteran-Suicide-Prevention-PCR-1889149701371441/
Everything ages. We do, our dogs do, and so do our vehicle’s headlamps. Fear not though, because JP’s has a solution… at least for that last one. Have you ever been driving at night down that dark back road, studded with potholes, deer, and the occasional creepy shadow that could possibly turn out to be the guy from the Texas Chainsaw Massacre? And then you have that epiphany of a moment when you realize that you can’t see 5 feet in front of you? In my personal experience, that’s always exactly when the deer will jump right out in front of your car like fuzzy, four-legged Rambos. Let’s face it; we need to be able to see in all conditions while driving, people! Foggy headlamps reduce your ability to see at night and during inclement weather conditions, and they are at fault for many accidents. We can help!
Through a process of dry sanding, wet sanding, and then a clear coat application that contains a protective UV filter in it, we can bring your old and foggy headlamps back to looking better than new and back to lighting your way like they were originally intended to do. The best part? They’ll stay like that. The UV treatment in the clear coat protects your headlamps from further oxidization and deterioration so that you can rest assured that the next time you need your lamps to do what they were designed to do, they’ll be ready. Come and see us, give us a call, or drop us a message and ask about our headlamp restoration!
Also… just a friendly reminder, JP’s Car Show is coming up this August 26th (which is a Sunday) and for this year, JP has decided to ask for donations in lieu of a registration fee… 100% of which will go to the Operation Zero – Veteran Suicide Prevention PCR, which provides a number of services for veterans and their families in an effort to reduce the number of veteran suicides. This is an issue that is close to the hearts of everyone at JP’s, and we would appreciate your donations in an effort to raise awareness and much-needed aid for the veterans that are in need. Exact times still TBD, and we’ll keep you posted as the date gets closer, but mark your calendars now! More information about this amazing organization can be found at https://www.facebook.com/Operation-Zero-Veteran-Suicide-Prevention-PCR-1889149701371441/
Every project that we have the honor of working on presents its own unique requirements and challenges; that’s what makes our jobs fun! This motorhome was no exception to that rule, and we pulled out all of the stops to ensure both the satisfaction of our customer and the delivery of an exceptionally finished product. This particular job was both a customer pay and an insurance claim collaboration, which was no issue for the team at JP’s! We frequently work with situations similar to this one, and we handle all of the hassles that tend to accompany insurance claims, leaving you to spend more time planning your next vacation, rather than worrying about covering all angles yourself.
Look, we are never in the business of judging anyone. We understand that motorhomes are large, precarious, and bound to get a few bumps and bruises. We get it! No matter how awesome of a driver you are, it isn’t a matter of IF, but WHEN it will happen. No stress. We’ve got you! Bringing your vehicle back to its best condition is what we do, and we like to think we do it extremely well. No matter the size of the vehicle, no matter the damage or how many multiples of requests, we can and will accommodate!
Insurance companies can give even the toughest of people a massive headache. They seem to speak almost in code at times, leaving us to question their motives and our own sanity. Our team has established working relationships with those insurance companies and we speak their language, so the inconvenience that often accompanies dealing with them will be our pleasure. Don’t get us wrong; we love our insurance agents, but working with them if you don’t speak their language can be confusing and an added stressor. Let us take the proverbial wheel for you so that all you need to do is be excited about what the future holds!
Project completion photos soon to follow! Stay tuned!
This American-made beauty was only in need of a little of the right kind of personal attention! Equipped with an appreciation for maintaining beautifully made things, a keen eye, and an impeccable sense of attention to detail, our Tyler Sieverts (AKA “Kid Rock”) really made the interior of this Camaro come (back) to life. As with anything that is lovingly used, appearances tend to fade with time and natural wear. Seats get worn, crayons melt, drinks spill, and life happens. Unfortunately for our vehicles, this means that it’s their interior that seems to take the brunt of the beatings. Luckily for you, we have someone on our team that can fix all of that.
Tyler learned to reupholster interiors while attending Wyoming Tech., and it was during that time that he discovered that he truly had a knack and a passion for the trade. We agree! He was able to meticulously disassemble, pattern, and then sew together each amazing piece of the interior, leaving us and the customer with a finished product that is better, in our opinion, than what you would get inside a brand-new vehicle, right off of the dealership lot! The embroidered logos on the seats were done by our friends at Keep It Marketing, completing the whole look, bringing it all together, and really making the design pop.
We are so honored to have Tyler as a part of our team and he really brings something special and of value to the table, further enabling us as a company to better serve you and all of your automotive needs. We stand by our belief that we can handle just about any project that comes through our doors, even redesigning the interior of your vehicle for a customized fit. And, now that you’ve read this, you’re going to notice the state of your own vehicle’s interior the next time you get in it. Not looking so great? Getting a little shabby? Just want something different or more your style? Come on down and see what Tyler and the rest of the team can do for you!
If you’re anything like me, you are currently praying that mother nature figures her stuff out and/or gets back on her medication. Hopefully, that last burst of winter was it and we can now begin thinking about summer. She did do us a favor in disguise though because her indecisiveness has bought us a few extra weeks to get all of our summer-essential toys ready for every mountain, desert, river, and lake. Time to pull the tarps and dust them off in the name of adventure! Mother nature may have been confused, but we aren’t… and you don’t have to be either.
The team at JP’s is standing by to address all of your automotive, RV, trailer, ATV, boat, and 5th wheel trailer needs! There are many benefits to getting your rigs ready now, including the avoidance of leaving for that annual family sand dunes trip 3 hours later than you had all envisioned, noticing at the last possible moment that the RV isn’t as road-ready as you had believed, and after you’ve already loaded up all the kids, dogs, groceries, and impatient mothers-in-law. Not saying I’ve ever done this… but then is not the time to start tinkering with your wagon train of toys for little and bigger fixes. Take action before you even have a date marked on your calendar for the next fishing trip or camping extravaganza. Tax returns are probably burning a hole in your wallet anyway, and there could not a better time to get everything taken care of so that, when adventure calls, you’re already ready to go! (It’s a crazy concept, right?)
Another reminder: our Annual Car Show is coming this August 26th, so tell your friends and get your rides ready! Contact us if you are interested in participating in or sponsoring our event, or if you need help getting your car ready for the show. Stay tuned for exact times!
The warmer seasons are upon us! The cherry blossoms are in full swing and the lawns are finally ready for the first mow of the season. I can smell the grass clippings now! Don’t do what I’ve done before as a motorcycle owner and wait until the day before you want to break it out to check and see if she’s ready! Trust me on this one, guys. You’ll find an expired registration, flat or low tire pressure, a dead battery, lamps that aren’t working, oxidized paint, a resident rodent in your saddle bag, or worse. Get your bike down to JP’s now, and avoid missing out on the riding season!
This British classic 1959 Triumph Bonneville was brought down to our shop in a disassembled state and in need of a little TLC to get her ready for the roads this summer. Our skilled techs took the parts and made them look like 1959 was yesterday! Do you have a bike in need of our attention? Come pop in and see us today!
What’s that sound I hear? Sounds like freedom to me! (Insert bald eagles cawing the National Anthem here.) This brand-new hitch trailer was brought down to JP’s by a New York native with a thick accent, and a request for all-American graphics and a fresh paint job to match the existing paint on his truck. Man did his team deliver! This out-of-state job had to be completed quickly, but that didn’t mean the team skimped on quality.
The customer came in with an idea in his head of what he wanted and the team at JP’s brought those ideas to life. The graphics were expertly designed by Tom Sloan Designs, our trusted graphics designer, and meticulously applied on top of a beautiful layer of metallic black paint to match his truck, which was flawlessly sprayed in a collective effort by Scott Olson (the legend himself) and his talented up-and-coming apprentice, Jeremy. Finally, they added a clear coat layer to protect both the graphics and the paint. It turned out gorgeously! What do you think?
When we say we can do just about anything, we mean it! If you can tow it, stow it, drive it, push it, float it, or make it move using Jedi powers, we can make it look great while you go. There is no such thing as an odd job here and we don’t use the word ‘impossible’. We make ideas come to life, and there’s no such thing as too lofty of a dream. Come see us and let us show you the possibilities! We can promise you won’t “forget about it!”
Spring has sprung, and it is a great time to address those unsightly issues with your vehicle that have been nagging at you all winter long. Sure, the snow hid those blemishes for a while, but now the warmer weather is on the way and nobody wants to be seen riding around on wheels with rust popping through, mirrors hanging on by the grace of duct tape, or oxidized paint and dents galore. While you’re here, we can take care of any general maintenance needs you might have as well and get you ready to hit the open roads again.
Camping, get-togethers, and fishing trips are calling! Make sure your ride looks as good as you do this summer! Come pop in and see what JP and his team can do to help your vehicle look its best this spring and summer. Whether you need a simple buff and shine or a complete makeover, we have got you covered! JP’s Collision Center takes pride in putting smiles on people’s faces and getting you ready for a great summer, so come see us and say hello!
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.
