One of the most important things when we talk about cars, is their maintenance! Every owner wants to keep his ride clean and smooth. You`ve probably all heard about the well-known theory that aluminum is more expensive to fix than steel. You`ve probably wondered the same, did you ever find out? The guys from the video just bought a brand new FORD F 150 aluminum and hit it with a sledgehammer!
Yeah, we know, who would do such thing?! But, hey, at least we`re going to find out if the “aluminum-is-expensive-to-fix” myth is true! The truck has been taken to the body shop, it stayed there for a week and the results came out as we expected!
The Ford F 150 Aluminum really is more expensive to fix! If you ever find yourself in a situation where you have to fix your aluminum panel, be ready to pay $120 per hour of labor work! Did we mention they need 20 hours to fix it? That would cost you $2400 to fix an aluminum panel, whereas for a steel panel, you would pay $60 per hour and it would only take 10 hours to fix it! Turns out, the traditional steel is cheaper to maintain after all!
