I mean if you just trying joke around thats fine. If it was photo shopped, then that editor knew an awful lot about collision dynamics and payed a lot of attention to all the other areas and background detail that show that this was a front-to-rear side swipe and they also knew that aluminum would rip at a much greater rate than steel. Doesn't sound like the kinda knowledge a CG guy would know. I know wrecks, but im no CG guy.

(The details in this photo lead me to believe this was a legitimate wreck)
MillerTime, What are they going to do to get these cars repaired most body shops can't weld aluminum. At least not the ones by me in Southside Virginia? This could be a nightmare for someone. Just a question.

Sounds like it. GM is jumping on the alum bodys next. Wont take long before Ram makes the jump. So many high end cars with alum, cant see what all the problem is. Looking forward to the rally in NC. Lots to talk about!

I don't know. Mine is a 2001 and just has a small rust spot and my pick-up came out of Florida.

Sounds like a coffee subject at Bob's every morning with a little Brandy to cut the cold wind. Or hot air....

Its a huge nightmare for everyone. I dont think there are much more than half a dozen shops in the okc metro that could do the work, and that's out of probably 100 or so shops.
I see a lot of unhappy ford owners in the future and possibly a huge lawsuit for Ford after there are so many people truckless with trucks waiting on repair.

We were taught in 2015 f150 school, that you have to use a welder that is capable of synergic pulsed spray transfer using AA5554 wire that is 1.2mm in diameter. You can not use a tig. You will potentially fry all the computers from the high frequency of a tig welder.
We are supposed to use alot of panel bonding adhesive on the panels as well as riveting them on with self piercing rivets(spr), flow drill screws, solid rivets. etc.
Galvanic corrosion is a big problem (white rust) so you cant use bolts more than once unless they come out with a coating to recoat the bolts. Ford recommends replacement though. Our instructor didnt even know how it was going to work with the parts being panel bonded and then welded ar the seams, with the way aluminum transfers heat.

Heres a couple pics of a self piercing rivet gun (used to remove and install rivets) and the SPRs (they look like little buttons) and a couple of the flow drill screws
