I’m usually bad at fixing things, but that’s only because I don’t have the proper tools on hand. I don’t usually just carry around a wrench, a hammer, or anything resembling a lift. But it turns out you don’t need those things. All you need is some hot water, and your own beautiful fists.

Scoff at plastic body panels all you want, but think of the ease of car repairs. They should build all cars out of noble, malleable plastic. Not just the body panels. The whole thing. The seats, the engine, the chassis.

This is a brilliant idea. 100% Absolutely.
