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. I got this car for $500 and it wasn't running and was super dirty. Now the car runs and looks dripping wet!
Website I found the car on:
Ceramic Coating:
Buffing Microfiber Pad:
Color Match Paint:
Automotive Clear Coat:
Wheel Cleaner:
Tire/Wheel Shine:
Detailing Brushes:
5000 Grit Sandpaper:
Trim Adhesive:

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:

What’s the average charge for a mid size sedan(Hyundai Sonata) to be compounded and polished, not sealed or waxed I like doing that on my own? I can wash, clay and decon, I just can’t polish for lack of a machine and most places won’t JUST compound and polish it, they need to re wash re clay etc..,

how often should you use compound/polish on a car? I assume only when the paint is dull right?
jason s
jason s 6 өдрийн өмнө
@ChrisFix I assumed, I just always had vehicles that were newer so never needed the compound or polish. A guy from work was asking but I couldn’t give him a definite answer to how often he could use it. Thank you for the quick reply
ChrisFix 6 өдрийн өмнө
Correct, if you notice problem spots that's when you take out the polish, other than that you'll follow a normal car cleaning routine!
