Can you break down everything done wrong? How would you do it?
I've been messaging and working with him on some of the other aspects, and he's a really good dude. What he is doing will work well, and for a car you'll keep its ok.
1: Should pull the body as straight as possible before cutting anything off. He can't do this as he doesn't have the equipment. Even if you know you are removing the part, you try to pull it back to the original position as much as possible
2: The inner wheel well is functional and will do it's job. Again, if you want it "right" you buy the replacement parts from Nissan or get a 1/4 cut and recover them from a crashed car.
Again if you are keeping this for you never to sell, he's doing a ok job of it, and he really isn't doing anything that makes it unsafe. He and other content creators like Tavarish make working on your own car less daunting, and opens up ideas for what you might tackle yourself if you've got some basic skills.
Oh and 3: I was just trying to be funny.

I applaud these guys for doing it themselves. Yes there are always people that can do it better/know more and specialize in only 1-2 things with heaps of experience. What people also forget is that the repair they do is only halve of the Job: they produce a Video which they host, cut, write, and whatnot themselves. If it wasn't entertaining, no one would watch. And that is the point.
And as time goes by and people with knowledge contact them and help them get better. Isn't that pretty much like this Forum?
