      No, the funny thing is that you call this a repair.

      Yeah, becuase the visuals are so much more important than the structual integrity of your car.

      I sincerely hope you're trolling, as I'd hope nobody could be as stupid, careless, and unconcerned as someone who would actually think this is something to be proud of/joke about.

      It works how, exactly? That theres no rust? There's flimsy metal in place of structure?

      The fact that this is extremely dangerous to you and others is really lost on you, huh?

      this is epic lol id take the car to a LEGIT shop and dish out the money to have it fixed right, and please stay away from tools from now on i thought this was a joke at first but i see how serious you are now

      Any chance you can do a diy tutorial on this repair? I'm considering doing the same with mine but having trouble locating the screws you used.

      ^Awesome. The OP p/m'ed me as well, all mad! What a moron.

      Bumping this up!

      Still waiting on the tutorial....really hoping to do this over the weekend.

      URGENT

      My boy also has some rust starting...I gave him my dremel to get the old stuff out. How do we make that bend?

      I've got an old plastic trapper keeper from school, this will work right?

      I'm glad you find humor in this situation.

      Here I am sitting around waiting for the tutorial while my Jetta is all apart.

      Haven't been able to get to work(chuckie cheeses) for over a month because of this guy taking his time with the guide.

      Are you serious? Stuff like this needs to be welded in. End of story.

      Thank goodness he put washers on those screws to help better distribute the weight of the car across that rusty sheet metal.

      U know what i was serious about? My promotion from ball pit cleaner to slide manager at chuckie cheeses!

      Thanks to OP that is likely flushed down the drain...that is if they ever let me back through the doors.

      I had 1600 tickets saved up for that mini lava lamp for my room too...what the heck am i supposed to do with those.

      i wonder if this guy died trying to take this on the highway yet

    25. 08-17-2012 01:05 PM #25
      He assured me this was an effective repair. I trusted him......
      I probably shouldnt have cause I got everything back together and went for a drive.

      Car is now in the impound lot....lost my job at chuckies. Mom might kick me out of the basement.

      rabbitman i hope you have a spare bedroom...ill need a place to stay.
