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

4 Jet Car Drag Race
Under the definition of "awesome" should be a picture of 4-jet cars racing!
NMRA/NMCA All Star Nationals at ZMax Dragway in Charlotte, NC ended the
night by lighting up ZMax's 4 drag lanes with the fire and the thunder of 4
jet turbine drag cars creating an estimated 24,000 HP on one track! The
Embry Riddle dragster takes off and runs a 5-second quarter.
17th Annual World Cup Finals Import vs Domestic 2012 at MIR, Radial vs Modified - Round 3 Qualifying
Saturday coverage of Radial vs Modified - Round 3 Qualifying.
I left in a lot of the commentating because the two announcers at this
event are awesome and give a lot of info on the cars and drivers. Makes it
feel like you are there watching it rather than just seeing a bunch of 10
second clips of passes. Enjoy.
Some highlights (other than all the amazingly fast cars and wheelies):
10:30 - Paradise Racing Celica unintentional high speed lane change.
14:45 - Starlet has a major crash and ends up on its roof, Driver was OK.
