I agree. These movies are god awful. The car community is a funny thing, we demand racing films that aren't completely over the top collages of explosions yet I've never once heard anyone do anything but praise these films both on the internet(jalopnik) and in real life(car meets).

To repair chips and deep scratches they obviously need to be painted over in layers over time, days I've heard, and then clearcoated and sanded over to… » 5/20/13 10:27pm 5/20/13 10:27pm

such high opinions no? I too am in the field of design as a student studying Industrial Design in Chicago and while I respect your experience in design very, very highly, I also think you're very very wrong here. I only just finished my second year of schooling and I won't pretend to know more about this than you, but… » 5/12/13 9:36pm 5/12/13 9:36pm
