My cheap salvage auction Audi R8 had one flaw, and that's a cracked front frame and an estimated repair cost of almost $30,000. We fix it now for way cheaper than any body shop would have.

If I was asks to do this repair I would demand to see that certificate of destruction and the roll cage to be installed.

Could you not have bought that whole section of framework and had your weder guy patch that instead? That way you wouldn't have so many potential failure points.

from a german mechanics foreman point of view - this work is absolutly pathetic and the result is more then questionable…. sorry but this is not the way to fix damage like that. there are reasons why there is no cheap way to repair that properly!

Modern Vehicles including the cheapest Toyota's are built using steels with different tolerances. Read about Ultra High Strength steel, High Strength steel, Mild Steel, All the different alloys and things such as Carbon Fibre used in modern vehicles. They use them in conjunction with the safety features such as crumple zones and air bag deployment. You cant repair cars like a swordsmith its 2018.

You're an amateur bro and all you're doing is putting other people's lives at risk by trying to fix that car. I feel sorry for the person that buys that car and goes faster then 100mph cuz your repair is a death sentence at high speeds...

Im not an expert. But i work with alot of metals. This repair seems a little sketchy. If it were my car i would have had the guy weld it just like you did without the very small gusset. Grind it all flat , and then cover the entire area with a half inch aluminum plate shaped to the frame. So kinda like a triangle. I dont have access to an R8 otherwise id design the piece for you (thats what i do for a living). I pray nothing happens but this fix seems unsafe.

Sam, I hope you were wearing eye protection when your welder was there... You'll burn your retinas like that.

I broke a windshield working on the front of the dash day before a road trip, happens so quick. Thankfully on the passenger side so didn't fix until back. And I was complaining about $300 in labor (thankfully happened to have a used one from a parts vehical). The bent rod seems to further support road caused damage.

Structural frames really need to be made of stronger material than aluminum. This repair is going to break again when you hit a decent sized pothole.

I probably would have reinforced it with a few more pieces and gussets wherever I could fit them. I have faith it would hold then. All these asshats that think they know everything are funny. Most of them probably helped design it this shitty to begin with. Or would be the guys that have the design a thumbs up come inspection time.

My Collision Repair teacher in high school told us all at that point , "we know enough to be dangerous." I think this is what he meant. Hope you don't break your repair on the road and hurt anyone else in the process.

Sam, I would ask Audi why specify the repair they do. This car is totaled for a reason, and it probably might not be safe.

Congratulations!!!! Woohooo!!!........Now you have a 200mph+ supercar that is bent out of shape and waiting to snap in two! You now own the most dangerous car on the road today. If you have any consideration for anyone whatsoever you WILL NOT USE THIS CAR ON PUBLIC ROADS! Chassis alignment much? Destress the frame at all before the "amazing" repair work? Unload the frame completely to check if true at all??...pfft whatever..... Just be aware, you dare sell this car, new owner wrecks thanks to you're handy bodge work WHICH IS GOING TO HAPPEN..........you would be prosecuted and JAILED! Dont be a dumbass and give the fking car back to AUDI to be checked and proven to be the pile of scrap it is! You can not afford to fuck about at the speeds this car can go to, what you have done, this R8 is going to bite you in half.........That frame crack wrote the car off for a very good reason. Have a think mate!

Weld? Why? I think it will crack again. Too much fatigue and now metallurgical damage from welding. I would have put it in place, and then bolted plate over the top. Bolting on a plate would have caused much less damage to the parent metal.

Bravo, have fun when u get in an accident next time. Maybe u should learn about different types of material used by european manufactures to make the car disform in acertain way. Some can be bended, some can be heated, some must be replaced. This is why it takes people in body workshops about 3 years of education to simple work there, another year to call them selves "Meister" to be able to own a body shop and multiple trainings every year to learn how to fix new invented techniques on cars. As your car is an Audi which is known to use always the newest techniques to be better, lighter and saver you are areally brave man to carry out that repair....do you know the darwin award?

Its not the suspension mods. Its not the welding quality. This car should have been put on a frame machine before and during the time these repairs were made, unless this clown can check demonsions with his eyes he has no idea if the frame is straight. Much less safe. Anybody with any amount of automotive knowledge and common sense would have put this car on a frame machine, but he's too cheap. This ins't even close to a correct start to this type of repair. This isn't a pinto. It is a highly engineered supercar designed to go above 180 mph he's gonna get someone killed.
