Bumps Can Be Different!

Bumps Can Be Different!

One man caught a bump and flew from the road in his FF2. We are not sure what the bump it was but seeing this makes us think that some bumps are real evil.

  3. This is great! If this would be seen in Sweden, the billboards would read “SHOCK TONIGHT; CAR WAS REPAIRED AND LOOKS OK!”.

    If some people would repair their cars instead of going the classic Swedish car-insurance “whoops”, this would be more common. I just hope that the repairguy is as good with painting as he/she is with welding and metalwork 🙂

    Good post anyway, despite the others whining.

  4. That’s actually not illegal to do here in the US, but after something like this the car has to be retitled with a salvage title. –Using a regular title on a car like this is illegal.

    • Quite, it looks like a perfectly competent repair to me. The trouble is most people have no idea what actually happens when they bend their car and the insurance company carts it off to the body shop.

    • With pleasure: Welding a car in spots not originally designed so, might strendhten/weaken it in a very spot, which would change the car behaviour during future accident. In a garage like that there’s no control over the strenght/correctness of the joint.
      2. Any welding will start to rust quicker than the original car due to chemical process it introduces. Original weld parts are galvanically protected against it, and the inner profiles waxed.
      3. You never know whether the car hasn’t suffered any minor bends which would result in future road misbehaviour.
      Would you feel safe in a car that could possibly brake in two once the rust comes (and it always comes from the inside)..

  5. I bet Honda has a stronger inner cage than Ford.I hate Focus,the dash in the first model year makes my eyes go crosseyed!

  6. that was actually a very well done repair. something i wouldnt be surpirsed to see is where they just bent it all back out leaving the old panels, just filling w/ body filler and 1 new door. now thats the cheap way.
