    Avoid buying black 488 gtb’s at all costs for the next 6 months! Lol

    I have watched a few of his videos. I can’t speak for the quality of his work but he and or an employee seem to have some old school techniques. I would not mind seeing more of those.

    But not too sure how good those techniques are on the newer metals and alloys.

    I find the videos interesting and he seems talented. The concern here is that car has a clean title so whether he is fixing it for someone or he is selling. Some poor fella may buy it since it is slightly underneath market price and think he has a 2 or 3 owner car with no history/ stories... especially if the delight of a good deal rushes him to forgo a proper inspection.

    Spend 6k on another grigio factory colored rims and this car just got laundered into a seas of black 488’s.

    He seems like a cool dude and kudos for him doing what he likes- as you see he advertises if you’ve been in a wreck he can fix your exotic, I suspect that is this case.

    I did not catch all that at first but I see where you are going. And yes that would not be too cool. FWIW wonder if car fax scoures YouTube to spot check these cars and adjust as necessary.

    If you ever need to know how to remove/replace switches due to the stickies, I bet this guy could tell you. Pretty industrious fellow.

    "Clean Title" because the accident never had a police report tied to it. Buy a $50 paint thickness meter and you'll know exactly if the car has ever had a panel repainted. CarFax means nothing.
