Unlike another blog, I'll point out that were no injuries here. Here's proof, for those of you who want it, that Toyota isn't perfect.

How do they share information across body shops around the world?

Remember the 5 Why's in your daily work… between that and FMEA, try to prevent problems from occurring.
