  • Hopefully you guys like the video! It's basically 4-5 videos in one with tons of info on how to get your car clean! So we can avoid the same comments over and over, check the description for all the links! Also, yes, ChrisFish is me, and not an impostor. It is my second channel I will start this year for when I go fishing, which I love to do. It is my way of still "working" and not feeling bad about going out fishing instead of filming, editing, or answering comments. Now I can do both! Here is the detailing products I used: Ceramic Coating: Compound: Polish: Wax/Sealant: Buffing Microfiber Pad:

    • You can also clean your wheels with oven cleaner in spray or foam and have the same result AND for the plastics use your heath gun just a little AND the plastic will look like brand new

  • How much product ? !?!?!?!! Used enough to do the whole car here. Admittedly it looks much better but way too much product used

    • @ChrisFix admittedly yes, I'm just used to using much less but then my car isn't in such bad condition but it just did seem a large amount of polish etc. I was taught a little goes a long way but as I commented you can't argue with the results. Please don't feel I'm attempting to say it's wrong

  • your videos are amazing. but it would be funny if you could take that truck back to the guy you bought it from just to see his expressions. it truly does look totally different. btw this is the same wax and compound i also use, and it works perfect.

  • For headlights. Ive tried many kits and methods and whats worked best for me is a meguire’s head light kit from autozone. The $30 one that comes with a drill buffing pad.

What would be your first step in diagnosing what to first do with the car? Getting this vehicle to be my daily so my wife can have the new car for her and the kids. Also subbed right away. 😁

  • Okay I have to say this. When he clear coated the lens on the PT cruiser it lead to a lot of people messing up there lights because at night the lights given off by the lights would get really blurry due to Light getting distorted by the clear coat on the plastic lens. Seeing him seal the lens after the sanding and polishing was a big step up and I can appreciate that.

  • This video is RIGHT on time. Bought an all black car and it has swirl marks & looks a little faded. Black or dark paint is the hardest to maintain IMO because of how easy it is to see imperfections in the sunlight so it is essential when detailing it is done correctly. I will definitely be giving this a GO. Thanks Chris.
