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
DEADLY Crashes: TRUCK vs CARS - Crash Test
DEADLY Crashes: TRUCK vs CARS - Crash Tests - They are among the most
serious types of accidents: trucks that go unchecked into the jam-end.
Remedy could bring "emergency brake", which for all new trucks are true to
the instructions, but do not exploit the technical possibilities. Which
leads to fatal consequences, a collision of 70 km / h, shows the ADAC test.
This accident will now be defused with vigor by an EU regulation. The
technology in the form of an "emergency brake" is already available for it
- the only question is, must meet the requirements of electronic aids. The
EU proposal of an autonomous reduction of speed by 10 km / h before hitting
a stationary obstacle is not the ADAC far enough. The existing technical
possibilities will be not even so.
The ADAC crash: To make the shortcoming of the upcoming regulation clearly,
the ADAC has simulates a classic truck collision in the system crash. A
five-ton under truck points clearly meets a lightweight, with a to 70 km /
h reduced speed to a jam-end with two passenger cars to another truck shown
Our film sequences clearly demonstrate: the truck pushes the first car on
the front standing second. In a split second car number one is deformed
until the middle of the vehicle. By the truck involved energy is enough
slack to create a more extensive scenario of the worst kind: Cars one
sliding under cars Two, which plunges to the front under the front of it
another truck - and then perpendicular to the rear sets up! One car has now
formed into a laminated core. Not only professionals come here to realize
that the chances of survival for all car occupants would approach zero.
Optimized systems are available: Which is not necessarily when the ADAC
Initiative for the better assistant technology comes into play. Running
tests has been demonstrated that optimized systems can clearly do more than
required by law. Technically it is possible to achieve a reduction in speed
of around 40 km / h (to stationary objects) and to avoid an accident with
the car in front completely.
Basically: Drive focused, do not allow any distraction Keep sufficient
distance Adjust speed to the weather conditions and the traffic volume
Requirements: Real accidents show how necessary is the introduction of a
sufficiently effective "emergency brake" for trucks. This was confirmed by
the corresponding ADAC crash.
The technology is available: For driving tests with emergency brake, the
truck was at speeds up to 55 km / h (on moving and stationary objects)
avoid the accident completely. Even at higher speeds, it would have to be
represented, the collision speed limit to a maximum of 40 km / h speed
difference to the other party.
As the result has been a vehicle of just 5-ton gross weight, this is far
too little. Long-term goal must be a reduction to zero in front of a
stationary obstacle. Technically, it is already possible, the impact speed
at all speeds, as well as stationary obstacles to about 40 km / h limit.
Method: In the experiment, an accident is shown in which the driver of a
truck with a total weight of 5.55 t recognize the standing traffic jam too
late and may reduce his speed due to short braking distance of only 80 km /
h to 70 km / h. The simulated jam-end is formed by two cars and a truck
rear. The experiment is carried out in accordance with the U.S. Standard
FMVSS three hundred and first

Crash Testing the 2013 Volvo XC60! - The Downshift Episode 51
We visit Ruckersville, VA and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's
Vehicle Research Center. IIHS is crash testing the 2013 Volvo XC60 in one
of their newest tests - the small overlap front test. On this episode of
The Downshift, learn why this kind of front overlap impact has such a
reputation for killing cars and their passengers, and find out if the Volvo
XC60 passes the test.
The Downshift appears every other Tuesday on the new Motor Trend channel.
