An exciting race between two cars that were close contenders back in the
day. So today we decided to take those two beauties out to feel what was it
like to put them head to head. It was a very close race so i will let you
guys choose who wins.
Paintless Dent Repair Using a Heat Gun and a Can of Compressed Gas Duster
Can you repair dents in an automobile with a hair dryer and a can of
compressed air? Yes and no. It depends upon the location and severity of
the damage. But as I have demonstrated, with a heat gun, $9 worth of Endust
Duster, and about 15 minutes, you can achieve some remarkable results.

Responses to the most common criticisms:
Q. Why didn't you just push the dent out from behind?
A. This is a hybrid vehicle and there is A/C equipment for battery cooling
that is located between the sheet metal and the interior finish. The dent
was simply not accessible from the inside.
Q. Why didn't you just use a toilet plunger and pull the dent out?
A. That may have worked on the larger of the two dents, but the surface
area of the smaller dent would have made that impossible.
Q. This video and photos of the dents have been Photoshopped and faked!
A. Absolutely not. I will gladly attest that this video and the images of
the dent, before and after, have not been retouched. I also have a witness
who observed the process and would attest the same.
Q. "Tapping" the panel like you did in the video would have popped the dent
out without the heating and cooling.
A. My attempts to pop the dent out with persuasive tapping by hand and a
rubber mallet prior to the heating / cooling did not have any impact.
Q. This process didn't help, you can still see the dents!
A. Yes. if you look closely you can still see the smaller of the two dents.
However, the larger of the two is not distinguishable to the casual
observer. This process made a significant improvement to the appearance of
both dents. It is not a factory perfect repair, but this is not a valuable
vehicle either. I could not justify the expense of a professional body shop
for a vehicle that is seven years old and +150,000 miles. This process
provided a good alternative.

The first car to wear the Maxima name was introduced in 1980 for the 1981
model year. It was essentially a Japanese-market Bluebird 910 with a 3.9 in
(99 mm) longer nose to accommodate the inline-six engine. The car was
offered as the 810 Deluxe or 810 Maxima that first year, and all 810s
became Maximas for 1982. In 1984, the last year of the first generation
Maxima, American Datsuns began carrying the "Nissan" badge as well (only
1984 Nissans have both "Nissan" and "Datsun" on the back of the car).
Toyota responded to the introduction of the Maxima by giving the Toyota
Mark II a more upmarket sibling, the Cressida.
The second generation retained the same base engine as the previous Datsun
810 and Datsun 280ZX. It was also available with the LD28 OHC 2.8 L I6
Diesel engine (available in the US from mid-1981 through 1983) with either
a five-speed manual or an automatic transmission.
Some of the power steering pumps were sourced from General Motors' Saginaw
Gear division, while others were sources from Atsugi. This was the second
Nissan to use US-sourced parts besides the Borg-Warner T-5 transmission
used in the 82-89 Nissan ZX turbos. The
use of USA-made parts was phased in prior to the passage of local content
laws imposed by the U.S. Government.
One interesting fact about this car is its phonograph-based voice warning
system. Warnings like those for a door being open, etc. would be relayed
through the mini phonograph and played for the driver to hear. A common
thing to hear would be, "door is open, key is in ignition." 1981 models
were the first 'talking car' sold in the US and offered only one voice
warning, a female voice reminding the driver that the "Lights are on.".
