    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:

    Perfect timing. I”ve got a car that needs a detail and plenty of time at home to do it. Thanks Chrisfix!

  5. Daz Dee says:

    I’m so glad you did this by hand. 99% of youtube detailers seem to presume everyone has access to a DA polisher and lives in a house with a driveway and has access to mains power right next to their car. A lot different here in the UK, where you can struggle to park on the same road you live on lol.

    • ChrisFix says:

      No one is as crazy as me to compound and polish a whole car on video hahaha. But that’s the whole point! Most people have hands but only a handfuls of people have DA polishers and power!

  6. EpicMelons says:

    Love it.

    4:28 – The hole immediately to the left of the latch, would have been a support pin that broke off. If that isn’t repaired the latch will break again if a bit of sideways force is applied to the lid.

    Everyone commenting that he “showed his phone number” it’s 867-5309 people…. Like the song. It’s not his real number people.

    Chrisfix: 26:41 “…so how we are gonna attach this is…”
    me: “compound, then polish and ceramic coat”?
    Chrisfix: “plastic adhesive”
    me: “ahh…ok.. 😅”

    Just for everyones knowledge: using a clay bar on a vehicle that hasn’t ever had one in a while is highly recommended.

    • Sean Cervantes says:

      Yep I’ll have to do this to my blazer. It has black specs all over it

    • Cane says:

      Do you use it before the Sandpaper or instead of it?

    • ZEUS show says:

      @Abel Celestin Jr results were amazing

    • Jacy Stone says:

      ZEUS show clay bar don’t sand it pulls dirt and other objects out the paint

    • says:

      @Cane clay bar is for surface contamination. Think of it like a deep wash. Sandpaper is for when there are scratches in the paint that are too deep to remove with compound. Before taking sandpaper to paint though you’ll want to do some reading to make sure you know what you’re doing; for example, using a crosshatch pattern with increasingly fine grits. Probably also want to do it on a car you don’t care about too much the first time—like one you bought for $500! 🙂
