    You are so lucky to have that car when I saw that car on Samcracs Chanel I became an Audi fan and rs7 became my favourite car forever that car have over 800hp if you don't believe me you can dyno it . That's a dream car I wonder why Sam fucked that car

    I just read about you in my latest Car and Driver. Very impressive. You have brass balls pulling this car apart with no prior experience. I have to say, as a white man, that I am disappointed to hear about the racism you go through. Pre Trump I thought most of that shit was over, but now I see racism is alive and well in America. Best of luck to you.

    Just if you did not know it but Key is missing with a Keyless VWagen's (Including bugatti and lambo) in a 95% means a low car battery or issues with voltage on ECU/ immobilizer. Rest 5% - key is actually not coded in your car.

    RICH, first time commenting and congratulation on the restoration. Hind sight is 20/20 and going forward, would it not have been better to just remove the rear passenger seat, pick and replace the entire piece with a better cosmetic outcome than what you had to do for salvaging the old forward section and now left with the re attachment point of the salvaged forward section and the newer replaced trunk floor visible for all to see. Stay positive as always Cheers

    One trick to figure out where spot welds are is to take flat black (cheapest pos spray paint you can find) and paint the whole area with it. Then, the hidden spot welds will pop out instantly in vision. Alternatively (but this is messy as hell) just throw graphite powder with an applicator. I prefer the paint variant since you're already going to have to paint it anyways. Plus, unlike back in the day, you have weld through flat black paint (if you don't wanna cheap out) and that's just pumping.

    Does this type of repair affect the overall rigidity and integrity of the car? Will the car be as safe, etc?

  • PiscesXXX


    Muaj më parë

    Yes it is comprised, no it is not safe. The rebar directly behind the bumper (the silver aluminum bar) is the first line of defense second to the absorber which is attached to the bumper in the video as it comes off, it cannot be repaired and most be replaced if damaged. As for the rear body panel and floor I haven’t read the procedures but I’m pretty sure that should have been welded and bonded. And I’m not sure what the procedures are on sectioning that trunk pan but it seems sketchy with out looking it up.

    Rich. You’re a genius. The work youve done with the Tesla’s is insane. I think your head is in the right space and you’re young enough so you should build your own car company. Yesterday I was talking with a friend about how the epa or environmental people should just make mileage requirements to make sure a car lasts a certain mileage. If old diesels can go a half million miles plus humans should be able to easily make a car that can consistently do that with the technology advancements we’ve seen in the past twenty years. Get rid of the “build it so it breaks” mentality that’s been created through massive amounts of greed. You seem like the dude so you’re welcome for your next “obsession”

    Great job on the repair, looks really good. I can't believe how bad of a job the previous shop did. Wouldn't surprise me if it would have been faster to do it the way you did it than the way they did it. they would have had all of the tools you needed to go get, would have been far simpler to just repair it correctly the first time and charge a reasonable amount to do so.
