Dude no one cares just finish the 4 rotor, ever heard of biting off more than you can chew? Because your channel is starting to look like the definition of that.

Hey you idiot, Yes you're right, it can be fixed like new, by the time when your finish, then you will realize that price to repair will exceeds price of a new car, it will always be a salvage car and the price is worthless, did that on a wrecked 2009 zo6, bought the car for 28k and had 70k when i got it finish, could have bought a new one for 75k, you will probably do the same

Hey Rob, I'm one of the somebody's that had to design all this. Well, some of it. That "frunk piece" you poked with your foot is mine lol. It's the frunk hinge and actuator. It was a pain in the ass to design haha. That part you picked up that "was in really good shape" and had a second one just like it is an antenna. Not sure exactly what it does since designing around it was the extent of my involvement with it. I think it might be for GPS or something like that. But they do indeed go in the front, tucked under the front fender. I look forward to seeing the project unfold. I spent a long time looking at the naked front end of this car on a computer, it will be cool seeing you get hands on with the real thing to put it back together.

Just a thought. Try calling GM (or maybe look online, and see if they have a type of exploded view of parts on the C8 yet. I know there's others that own other C8's that have brought there's in for service and/or repairs by now.

Make it a front engine rotary and throw in a torque tube and rear transmission for better balance of the car. That’d be sick

Stop worrying about the parts and concentrate on getting the body straight. It'll be years before you're ready to turn the key so every part will be available in time. Also, orange irons.

The camera could possibly be saved by replacing the lens. But if you don't care about original parts they don't nessesarily need to be expensive.

The front crashbar is in such good a shape because it did its job, to remain intact and rigid to spread the impact force over the entire front of the car. Spreading the energy out lowers the effective crash force across the car and so controls the depth of impact.
Crysmatic پیش 4 ماه
once metal has deformed plastically it can't be reused. it may fail instead of bend (which absorbs crash energy). cars aren't designed to take multiple crashes. one and done

Part the salvagable pieces out and purchase a new C8. You'll save yourself a lot of time, anxiety, and money in the long run, especially if you ever trade it in. Nobody in their right mind would purchase a car that had been near-totaled and then rebuilt by backyard amateurs.
frostykyogre پیش 4 ماه
Hey Rob, just saw on GM Authority that a C8 fell off a service lift in Florida. It seems damage was mostly in the rear so maybe you could look into getting front end parts off of it.

those cameras in the bumper are used to give you the top down view so you don't hit a curb when parking. there's a module that stitches the 2 cameras together to form that view.

Honestly, GM should be totally content to sell you parts. You’re the first DIY parts sales on a 2020 C8. You’re going to be turning more profit for them than all the other C8 purchases to date.

The C8 is practically the definition of a mid engine car. Just remember your opinions do not change the facts. I really scratch my head at some of the shit you come up with. smh

Mr. Dahm, I enjoy the phrase; this is a "Million dollar part." We know they make in very low-cost countries for pennies-all that plastic in a raw form. You could get for a few meals at McDonald's with some friends. The tooling amortization over several years plus inventory overhead of GM, and what it is the decided value based on supply and demand for the model years using those parts.

I agree with you. Resemble the car as much as you can in order to clear the codes and reassess your build. I’d say that is an excellent and smart move. Looking forward to this build.
