Heavily Bent Volvo S60 Gets A New Lease Of Life Thanks To Lone Mechanic

When it comes to working with metal, few YouTubers do it better than Arthur Tussik, who specializes in bringing severely damaged cars back to the land of the living.

In case you haven’t seen his work, you can check out what he did for this wrecked BMW X5, as well as this 7-Series with a bashedrear end. His latest “patient” is a second-generation Volvo S60, which has sustained heavy damage on its right side.

Aside from the doors or the front and rear ends, the car’s frame is actually bent way out of shape too, which meant he had to straighten it back up before applying some finishing touches – which proved quite risky, as the hook that was pulling the frame snapped at one point – you can see it around the 2:33 minute mark.

He then proceeded to fix the transmission tunnel, and then used parts from a donor car to mend the rest of the S60’s damaged right side. After he finished welding, he proceeded to install the doors and fix the front end, which included the fender, mounting the headlights and the rest of the fascia.

While these repairs took 60 hours, they mostly involved the exterior of the vehicle, as well as its overall structure. In order for the Volvo to get back out on the road again, the dashboard will need to be mounted back on, as will the front and rear door panels, so the project isn’t finished just yet. However, given Tussik’s prowess, we bet it won’t take much longer.

    damn amazing work. more artistry involved than any painter or sculptor iv seen, he is both.

  • Wandering_Spirit

    Normal stuff done daily in Italy at least. Seen much worse cars brough back as new by similar body repairers.

  • schnittz

    Better repair then most DRP shops.

    If Mr. Vodka said it will buff right out, u better believe him. 😀

    Awesome job sir. i salute your craftsmanship and tenacity.

    Obviously, this repair was done for the instructional value. Would I drive the repaired vehicle? Not on my life. Otherwise, it would (and should) have been totaled.

    • Przemix

      the probability that we are driving cars repaired like this is very high. Unless it is not split in half you should walk alive from accident in such a car

      its done properly,, i dont have qualms if my car were to be repaired by him.
      I’m more concerned about his repair bill, i really do hope it justifiable.
      Since i know even if the car is perfectly driveable and save, the car price would be greatly depreciated, and i definitely would have to inform the prospective buyer about this. its just the right thing to do.

  • Shtekeris

    That’s not cool at all. They will most likely sell it as barely used, happens all the time.

  • Krisnadi Imam

    Indeed, he is very skilled and dedicated to his work. i kinda wonder how much does he charge for such repair tho. regardless its awesome really.

    Pretty sure a lot of these those cut up donor cars in Russia are stolen cars from other parts of Europe….
