    seems like there were plenty of places on his way in where he should of said ďnope, bad idea.Ē But no....keep going, keep digging deeper hole. Moron.

    I would think if he took rental insurance it would not apply in that case. The extreme stupidity clause.

    He explained it in another episode: CO2 sensors, had to have 2 replaced. It happens, they do eventually burn out.

    I'd take video anyway, to avoid liability kickbacks. Some people are just nasty, and a video archive of the condition of the vehicle before you commence could be useful if the insurance company tries to pin damage on you.

    I assume you already have a proper legal indemnity waiver?
