    What you did was very brave. You bought for still a lot of money, an electric-car that tried to swimm. And then you brought it back to the road again. And you were succesfull wiht it. Not many men to this. Please, for your self, look for the deeper benefit off it. You learned a lot. Not only in technical perspective!

    Man I’ve done tech work, body work, vinyl repair, fiberglass repair and painted cars and boats for the last 18 years and when I seen those scuff marks I think about how I just fixed them for free for people all the time as it’s something I’m passionate about and I see how you enjoy working on cars and I think that what you’re doing is one of the coolest things I’ve seen on ALthe. I enjoy watching your videos and wish you positive thoughts as you continue the journey.

    Why aren't you close to DC??? I have a 2017 Honda Accord still under warranty and there is a knocking noise coming from the left-side of the engine that happens when the car is idle in reverse. I can't figure out a pattern because the noise is random. I took it to the dealer that did a "full inspection" and of course the car did make the noise while at the dealer or allegedly didn't. However, they said that there weren't any leaks or anything out of the normal. You have any mechanic friends in the DC area??? the noise is so annoying!

  • Deft Brotha

    Watching your videos has made me change my mind about purchasing a Tesla. Far too many monetary kinks need to be worked out before I would feel comfortable investing money in one. I prefer to own my vehicle's and Tesla's out of warranty maintenance scars the sh** out of me. I don't have that kind of money to put into a vehicle after paying for it.

    Biggest reason why you don't buy a flooded car is due to corrosion. This isn't something that happens overnight but within a couple years. A flooded car my work ok at first but after a couple years it becomes a nightmare.
