      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:

      1. EarthToORyan

        Love the video! I'm going to be fixing a spot on my hood!

      2. Jacob Morphew

        ChrisFix would you clay bar before compound and polish?

      3. Luis Teran

        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

      4. Caleb Mac Donald

        Hey man love your vids, can you do a paint fix episode that has flecks in the paint, i think it might be harder but I'd like to try on my car. Cheers bro

      5. KR

        Hey Chris i always see people mix "G3" compound with water. Is that required? and BTW does your compound have a "G" number?

    2. Sam Am

      Pls do more :)

    3. Anchong Yang

      you are a wizard

    4. badfisssh41

      Are you washing the compound pads and reusing or using new ones when they get caked up? If washing, is it okay if they're slightly damp? Thanks in advance. Great video btw.

    5. Stephen Uchihaシ

      hey chrisfix so ive been thinking about buying a car but idk what to choose can you give me some suggestions, preferably a 4d japanese car

    6. 18magicMARKer

      If you're gonna use a company product you should give them free advertisement instead of taking the time to cover them up...or if they're not allowing you use their products on a company that allows, there's loads of product that does as good a job if not better than the one you used, but I don't think that's the case.

    7. The UnSeEn

      That's an awesome transformation!

    8. Montes

      Tried it on my civic with everything that you used and got no results

    9. Gunshinzero

      That's not a restoration. That a resurrection.

    10. Jay Cone

      DRY MUD? or pooop?

    11. Diego Garcia

      this will be awesome for my civic lol

    12. Diego Garcia


    13. Dylan Dimura

      Just want to say thank you so much for this video I’m a mechanic so body work and paint not my strong spot. It with your help I was able to get it done and looks great

    14. Miguel S

      Wow ...

    15. PinkyPhinger

      I love to hear how excited you are after each reveal of the shiny paint lolol. The car turned out great!!

    16. Krazy 80 Baby

      Very Impressive.

    17. menelek teng

      Where do you buy 2nd hand parts?

    18. Giuseppe Roberti

    19. Mista Freeze

      I am a HUGE fan of Chris Fix...He literally nails everything he works on👍👍👍...Can anyone say "TV Show" for Chris...🤚🤚🤚....the I's have it😊...I just subscribed to your channel.. Keep up the great work Chris.

    20. Robert Fields

      Watching from Ireland, great stuff,all ways wanted to know about macanics on cars, you make it look so easy.

    21. Bxunt

      I wish Chris would just superclean everything, i know it's basically detailing/valeting but Chris you put it into terms which i can understand unlike 99% of other videos.. plus i've watched the supercleans like a bunch of times already :p x

    22. Jas B

      What did you get for it when you sold it?

    23. Waqas Michael


    24. blend babany

      Love it like it show your self with head hell high 💪

    25. Francisco Magana

      Where you got the color match rattle can paint?

    26. Carter Strain

      F11 vs ceramic coating?

    27. Andrej Lange

      I recently got myself a classic car and your channel is so incredibly helpful. Can't even express how damn useful those videos are, thats some really valuable knowledge you are spreading. Tanks a lot and keep up the great work

    28. mrabelonee

      I noticed you didn't use a clay bar. Is that necessary before using compound? My tacoma has faded white paint, but I'm afraid to start using compound on it before using a clay bar first. I'm I good or should clay it? Thanks Chris this was a very straight forward video, a lot of other videos make it seems so complicated. btw i also wanna compound the 1969 vw bus in my profile pic.:-)

    29. flyboypuoi

      Incredible transformation! I'll be looking for some compound after this!

    30. DontMatTerSz

      Best video I’ve seen foreal foreal...thank you.

    31. Christopher Cravens

      And Chris, on that center console, the nipple is also broken on that too, idk if you seen that or not but mine is the same way.....

    32. Greg Johnson

      I think u put that mud on the passenger seat. Lol

    33. Jedi817

      Are you gonna keep the car or sell it for a profit?

    34. truetoinnerself

      i literally was hoping you had made a video about this because i just did my headlight restoration at home based on your last video and i wanted to do more about my hood paint.. you always make it so simple... i end up watching the video while im doing a project and then i just go down the rabbit hole watching your other videos going HEY! i'll do that next. i just bought my dream car from when i was a kid, got an 02 mustang and im trying to keep her pretty and functional.

    35. Kelly Kelly

      You havent' used expensive product, the ceramic coating thing is 120$ just to let you know...the price of a repaint ;)

    36. rashed

      Long time not see you what happend

    37. Vlad Lz

      "dried mud"

    38. Seraphim401

      I like the way he emotes with his hands.

    39. Dan Qvo

      I rather just put raptor liner paint on the whole thing

    40. Rivet0153

      Would using these buffing compounds work on clear coat scratches?

    41. StealthGang- PubG Mobile Gameplay

      I have a couple spots I need to paint on my car, what type of paint did you use? And where did you get it from? And how much was everything including the compound and polish. I also don’t know if my paint is bad enough where it needs repainted or what. Just get back to me if you can

    42. Phay8 ツ

      Chris! Buy a DA polisher lol your going to kill your back bro.

      1. Phay8 ツ

        @ChrisFix you did a fantastic job. I own a detailing company in NC so I know you were in some pain afterwards. Appreciate your hard work.

      2. ChrisFix

        I do indeed own one! But I wanted to show that you can get great results by just doing it by hand!

    43. Navneet Singh

      "Out with the Old" "In With the NEWWW" 😬

    44. DrBens

      You gotta love how Chris wrote "NiceTryGettingMyEmail" as his email

    45. Archie Abela


    46. Cameron Thomas

      Man the guy who sold you this car really created 1000 accounts to dislike this vid LOL

      1. ChrisFix

        They guy that sold the car didn't care about this car at all haha

    47. Iqmal Fahrin

      Im still waiting for the driftstang to be supercharged 😊

    48. camelazo

      <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="107">1:47</a> you must branding the AND CHECK THIS OUTT!!! in your chrisfix stuff , great content as always!!

      1. ChrisFix

        Haha thanks!

    49. Penderveld

      How do you find a spray paint that matches the original body?

    50. Lawrence Schoelhamer

      Definitely going to do this stuff to my 2007 Ridgeline. It’s my buddy’s and it has 170k miles on it, and the owner before him didn’t really take care of the paint. Although I might just have it repainted too lol. Not sure.

      1. Lawrence Schoelhamer

        I will! It’s mainly for commuting to and from work so I keep my nice car in great shape. Even though my nice car is a 2019 Honda Civic Touring. Lol.

      2. ChrisFix

        Definitely try and let me know how it goes!

    51. Logan Stewart could turn an apple into a hummer dude. Thank you for the incredible content 🙏

      1. ChrisFix

        Thanks a lot Logan!

    52. 0ctangle

      <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="240">4:00</a> just saw the nice try getting my email, good one @chrisfix

    53. Dylan Stewart

      I like Chris’ haircut. It makes him look like smash mouth lol

    54. Joseph Burkhalter

      Now spray everything in the engine compartment with simple green after covering the alternator with a plastic grocery bag. Let it sit for about 15 minutes and hose it off with a hose set to fine spray. Blower dry it with a leaf blower or vac set on exhaust. Spray everything with a silicon tire black high gloss spray. Let it dry. Wipe off any missed spots. The engine will look like new. Even with high mileage. All this takes only about 30 minutes. Tops. Good luck. JoeB

    55. uruG Sandhu

      ChrisFix you are truly awesome and make it look so easy. Hats off to you sir. I love the reflections in the paint are all your cars and past projects. (Hey Neighbors, time to sell and move out. ChrisFix is taking over the block)

    56. Tamara Kennedy

      Dude. Truly you performed a complete makeover...this went from junk to cherry..nice work man..hey any problems with ceramic coat on any surfaces including headlights? I mean in terms of after the first time it rains or after a heat wave or snow ?btw im a subscriber.

    57. John Villante

      I'm just wondering, do you have to clay the car before this step to get results like that?

    58. Tamara Kennedy

      You need a thinner...use a thinner on that paint so it dries right and wont stay tacky...if you thin it a bit it will dry faster more even doing 2 to 3 coats with 20 minutes between coats and 24 hours to cure before scrubbing on it try not to scrub on it also you might consider a clear coat to seal it. Kind of like a top coat for nail polish.

    59. Tamara Kennedy

      Dude it looks like a mirror!

    60. Tamara Kennedy

      Why not use some awesome some dawn liquid and alcohol? Then brush with a new toilet scrubber then suck it up with carpet cleaner attachment for upholstery?

    61. Reigne Pineda

      Chris you always amaze me. U had saved me tons of money since i discovered you. I do my own oil, brakes and easy car maintenance. Now i restore my colors. Your the best!

    62. Andrew Mendoza

      Should I use this video or the How to SUPER CLEAN your car video in order to get the best paint finish on my car? My 350 has a lot of swirl marks all over, and the paint is still in good condition. I’d say 7/10 or 8/10.

    63. YoBoiAarrow

      is this the first time he hasn't said "Medium Strength Thread locker" in a video?

    64. Nanette Nette

      Love your can do attitude

    65. 2491kridge

      Really wish I had the patience to detail a car like this lol, I work on cars for a living and love that aspect of cars but simply don’t have the motivation when it comes to cleaning

    66. Randy Ledford

      Where do you get ceramic coating

    67. Randy Ledford

      I've seen that brand of compound and polish but can put my finger on it

      1. Randy Ledford

        @Ulises D'Binion thanks

      2. Ulises D'Binion


    68. FinleyTheBetta

      Compound is going to solve worldwide hunger.

    69. usabadone

    70. MiSsNaNnIeBaBy

    72. Murat Öngül

    73. nooh way - im back!

      I love how chris is just a normal guy who does his videos and talk like a normal person, not that Vloggy-Clickbaiting carguy who does more talking and filming himself than doing the purpose of the video

    74. spblackey

      That paper trick is great.

    75. maoristereo

      Chris, tell me how to fix my life.

    76. ANTWAN0

    77. Brikkho Mithun

    78. Jateen Narain
