Why did he take the drivetrain out? It would have buffed out,..... maybe drum of bondo or two. ;-P
What a waste. Makes me think about the feeling I get after I cone down off stupid speeds when I get a wild hair. Your going by things so quickly at 100 MPH+ and in the blink of an eye, things can change dramatically and this could be the result. Alot of fine work in the trrashcan. Glad to hear all came out OK.
