Best Paint Touch-up Tricks: Mercedes G55
This is one of the worst key scratches I have ever seen. This car needed to
be repainted, but I thought I would give it a shot...nothing to lose. It
covered 3 separate door panels with varying depth levels. 98% of the 9 feet
was through the clear coat, paint, base, and into the substrate. EXTREMELY
bad scratch. In this episode, I discuss multiple ways to approach this type
of paint damage. I want to be crystal clear: THIS CAR NEEDED TO BE
REPAINTED FOR 90-100% satisfaction. My techniques here, with the
understanding of the customer, had the best-case final results of 70% to
75% "better or touched-up" appearance. See how it turned out. Thx for

Top Gear: The Worst Car in the History of the World will be released on
DVD, Blu-Ray and digital download on Monday 19th November 2012

Jeremy Clarkson and James May will present their opinions on The Worst Car
in the History of the World in a brand new, all exclusive Top Gear DVD.
Jeremy and James travel to the North of England to name and shame the most
rubbish cars in the entire WORLD. It's a labour-intensive affair, filled
with heated debates, giant cranes, James being locked in his own car boot
and...Jeremy being tied to a tree.
But don't be fooled, it's not all about terrible cars -- to appreciate the
stinkers you have to revel in some good ones too -- like the 4.5 litre
Ferrari 458 Spider, Toyota's GT86 and the £340,000 Lexus LFA running
shoulders with a Mercedes SLS AMG.
As they are up North, the boys invite The Stig's Yorkshire cousin to be a
guest driver. Putting his whippet to one side he throws the BMW M5 round a
gymkhana course before testing out a couple of Transatlantic challengers
with Jeremy and James. Things, you won't be surprised to hear, don't go
according to plan.
The debate about The Worst Car in the History of the World continues while
the boys play a few rounds of golf. But that doesn't go according to plan
either. They even put their own cars -- past and present --into the
reckoning. That ends badly too.
The rest of the time up North is spent arguing over the great and the awful
from Peugeot, Ford, Mahindra, FSO, Alfa Romeo, Rolls Royce, Porsche,
Citroen, Saab and many more.
There's also a special surprise fate in store for the car picked as the

Junkyard Turbo Swap! Chevy-Powered 1971 Datsun 240Z Autocross Thrash - Roadkill Ep. 26
What do you get when you cross a rusted 1971 Datsun 240Z with a Chevy 4.3L
V6 and a turbo from a Ford Power Stroke
Diesel? The Rotsun! During Roadkill Episode 25, Freiburger and Finnegan
revived the Rotsun expecting it to dominate in the 9-car autocross showdown
of previous Roadkill project cars. It also needed to beat a 2014 Kia Rio 5,
but failed to do so with the Rotsun shamefully breaking down before
completing a decent lap. So in this episode: revenge. After swapping in the
mismatched turbo and making nearly 400
rear-wheel horsepower, the guys head to
the autocross at the Goodguys 5th Spring Nationals in Scottsdale, Arizona
and mingle with fans on their way to a rematch with that dastardly Kia.
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the Motor Trend channel.
