Your comment is technically correct (the best kind of correct), but in this context it is based on a faulty premise. As far as I know, no automotive manufacturer is using truly water-based paints. What they use are waterborne paints. It is more precisely referred to as a suspension than a solution. The paint is not… Read more
Think about it like this, most race cars are rebuilt so many times they aren’t all original to begin with. There’s a bit of Ship of Theseus happening with old race cars. They’re worth so much, that someone will fix them. Lastly, the damage doesn’t appear to be very extreme.

And try building a 7 mile tunnel in the US for a cost that does not include the word “billion”. $160 million for this is ungodly cheap for this type of work. Denmark’s infrastructure is so, so good, and doubly so if you are on feet or a bike, and about 100X better than the US for pedestrians. But, you know, socialism.
Their core business was the fraud...
the fossil fuel burn for electricity is also another great sign of american exceptionalism.
Most of the developped world have moved on from this decades ago.
it’s up to you to be better, but that doesn’t mean electric vehicles are bad. It’s your infrastructure that’s bad.
And pulling a random number out of your a.. hat!… Read more
