      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:

        Hey chris do a video on how to install s ps4 gaming console in a SUV

      2. The Epic Car Show

        keep creating Chris we are all stuck in doors and your videos give us something good to watch

      3. Mr Midget

        Is the driftstang coming back?

      4. Nzivie Prince-Avaala

        ChrisFix is ceramic coating good for chrome ? Otherwise what’s the best method for chrome restoration?

      5. C Sak

        Sweet video I loved it. Do you not have to clay bar if you compound and polish? Also my 04 envoy had had a recall on the gas tank. Took them months to get on in. I'm just going to tell myself that's my old gas tank you put in there lol 😂.

    7. Vicki C

      Well checked out Autotempest site. Nothing within a 200 mile radius. Guess only $500 cars are available in more populace areas. Thanks for the tip.

    8. Học Hỏi Thêm

    9. Gam Bini

      Magical man. This was amazing. Not my car but so satisfying

    16. Chad Pugh

      He's gonna flip this truck for 3x the price. That's awesome.

    17. Chad Pugh

      Gotta love the way Chris does things the "hard" way for the viewers benefit. Guy has a garage full of tools but does things by hand to prove a valuable point.

    18. Sharpie

      No clay bar??

    19. ZATAxGAMING2571

      you got any mods for the driftstang

    20. sunny money

      Heyyyyy guyssss

    21. أبومنصور المنتصر

      Great thank you for all

    22. Chad Pugh

      Nice work! That Meguiar's Ultimate line is awesome. The results were really nice by hand. A da polisher, even a cheap Chicago Electric from Harbor Freight would work wonders. THX for video Chris. Been a subscriber for a couple years now.

    23. tomi chua

      Awesome video, can I do this outside while on Covid 19 quarantine:-)

    24. Jasnoor Bains

    26. Kian Duesing

      @<a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="402">6:42</a> How did he paint these thin lines above the doors? Look at the other panels, they are clearly missing there... Did he also painted them by hand? If so, what a steady hand :D

    27. Just Omar

      Hey and what happened to the red Honda civic

    58. Yehia Ali

      Hello, Really like your videos. We don't have Meguiar's products here but we have sonax. Could you guide me which sonax polish and compound will give the same results? Sonax has polish for black paint, general polish and xtreme one so which one is the correct choice?

    59. dhruthin dhruthin

      What about your drift stang

    60. kelvin chan

      Nice I like your videos. but it only works on certain countries. Not expensive as fxxk countries like eg Singapore

    61. Crispy Jester

    66. Lee MX

    67. The Djinn

      Damn this looks sooooo gooood, gonna go to Home Depot right now and buy me some compound and stuff and work on my Malibu

    68. Matthew T

      Hey Chris been a follower of your channel for awhile and I have a car issue question for you if you have the time!? I got a 2004 Mazda 3 and one day the cars power would drop and I would loose all electrical in my car so I replaced the alternator and it was working right as rain again. Then 2 weeks later I went to run a new power line to my subwoofer then after install I reconnected the battery and went to turn it over and it didn’t start. When turn key to ignition it starts to crank but doesn’t start... I’ve watched your stater Mazda truck fix but your truck wasn’t cranking.... I checked all my fuses and they all look good, I even went and I did the work I did and put it all back to how it was and still nothing. I’ve done loads of these installs and never have I had this happen. Any thought?been out of work due to the corona virus and don’t have money to take it to the shop so I’m trying to figure out what it is so hopefully I can fix it myself with your help. Thank you!!!!

      “Look how good that shine is” only thing in reflection the Maserati 😂


      Del Sol! Are videos on it coming?

    72. Josh Brookes

      Anyone else notice how he used body primer (For Metal) on plastic trim? Plastic primer has more flex and stretch so the paint wont crack. He knows this but forgot to mention it here i guess. Yes im nit picking as its only a small bit of door trim, but just dont do ya bumpers the same way trust me..

    73. Lazarus Dixon

      Show us how to pull an put in a turbo😂😂

    74. Lookpro

      wasn't the clear coat worn out on those faded (yet still painted) spots on the right side of the car ? Great video anyway :D

    75. lastservant

      I must say.... That was amazing! Chris you made it look easy and very do-a-ible

    76. Tylan Holmes

      Is there a way to clear up the oxidation happening on the inside of headlight lenses?

    77. Michael Hayes

      why he always shouting bet his neigbours get annoyed hearing him from their living room.

    78. Daniel Lopez

      Thanks Chris for these videos, you're like having a cool mechanic friend that teaches how to do a variety of things. I like this content more than ALselrs that just buy expensive cars to drive around, although it is good to get a little familiarized with their features and interior and blah blah blah, the stuff you do is something that people can actually do at home. This trailblazer for example at the end of the video looked like something that you would see back in 2003 at the Chevy dealership, so clean nice and shinny (for freaking 1k) Yes it takes elbow grease, but the hard work only makes the finished car more rewarding. Going to the junkyard for a part is fun, like going on a treasure hunt. Not to mention you could flip the car and get money, or just keep it.

    79. Thecasualgamer2122 77

      Raspy chris? Still sounds awesome...

    80. Chino Corona

      I gotta question for you I gotta 96 civic ex my problem is my sound like it has no gas but it has some and every time I drive it around it’s sound like it’s gonna turn off what should I do ?
