Wow, that's crazy talent. I would never trust that car, but still cool nonetheless. It was very soothing to see the timelapse of the dents getting pulled out!

impressive work. i agree, it seems very unsafe to drive that car if you ever get in another impact. Cars are meant to fold like that once.

Definitely has some talent, that's for sure! But as said I don't think I'd trust the car too much in an accident, that metal has been fatigued so much, the integrity of it has gone down a TON.

Some people are wimps, it's still safer than a bike, a smart car or most cars built in the 80's. hahaha

You can see in the video he reinforced or replaced most components.

I've watched other videos of this same guy. Makes you wonder what the replacement cost would be if it's cheaper to rebuild to this level.

Talented guy!

But still a bad idea for the street bc of work hardening. I'd run that on a track with a cage, sure.
