Learn how to detail a car with faded, scratched, paint. I will show you how to do paint correction by hand, how to remove swirl marks, how to restore faded trim, how to restore headlights, and finally how to fix sun damaged paint.

    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:

    So i did this yesterday and everything was fine but today when i wanted to do the rest of the car. The compound and polish just dryed on the paint and i had to wipe it off with water. Nothing got off from wiping it with a dry towell.
    Why does it start drying all the sudden.
    And Is it bad to wipe it off with water?

I really hope so because I just found out I have to remove the bed. To get to the pump..forever a fan!! Thsnk you

    Any recommendations to restore the look of the rubber trim around all my windows and windshield? The rubber trim on my '98 Ford Explorer looks great wet, but when dry the trim is a cloudy chalky white/grey. At this time, I really can't afford to replace every bit of visible rubber trim on this monster. I have no leaks, the rubber trim just looks bad.

    The center console in the Trail Blazer has got to be the worst choice of materials ever chosen by a vehicle manufacturer, maybe ever. If you go into a junkyard to find one NOT broke I wish you luck. If you do find one consider yourself lucky. I have been to every junk yard in my area over the past few years and they are always broken or are gone. The door is made of expanding foam insulation and collapses under a small amount of pressure.

      Why? He wanted 1k when he thought it was just the fuel pump (200 ish dollar parts) but actually muffler and rest of fuel needed replacement too, and would have cost more if it wasn't for this guy going to a pick a part and getting it himself for cheap. Then the labour to put it in. The labor for cleaning etc. It's decent profit, but not a rip off. Previous owner still got 90 bucks more than he would have for the "tow my car" service that Chris would have sold the car to if he couldn't get it to work.
