How to Detail Faded Paint by Hand (Paint Correction)

21 906
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:

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:

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

Okay I have to say this. When he clear coated the lens on the PT cruiser it lead to a lot of people messing up there lights because at night the lights given off by the lights would get really blurry due to Light getting distorted by the clear coat on the plastic lens. Seeing him seal the lens after the sanding and polishing was a big step up and I can appreciate that.

This video is RIGHT on time. Bought an all black car and it has swirl marks & looks a little faded. Black or dark paint is the hardest to maintain IMO because of how easy it is to see imperfections in the sunlight so it is essential when detailing it is done correctly. I will definitely be giving this a GO. Thanks Chris.

With all the cars I've painted for friends (not a professional), I never once thought of freezer bags for the mirrors. I used shopping bags but they required alot of tape.

Watched twice, pausing when you showed the products you used (have a suggestion list?). I have two OLD vehicles: 2000 Accord and 1995 Safari, and the how-to restoration steps look very doable. I'm lazy, yes, but I'm also retired, and not leaving the house bc of COVID19, so there's no excuse not to get to this. Well done; thanks for posting.

Thank You for all the videos. I watch a lot of car repair videos, and I do enjoy 99% of them and they give me a lot of tips, but one thing is missing from almost all of them.. Tools that us "normal people" generally have. At work, I have a compressor so I CAN have air tools, but sometimes they are very pricey! So I guess I am saying THANKS for making it possible for us to tackle these jobs with normal everyday tools that are not costing an arm and a leg even if we have to get them.! Keep videos coming and I will keep learning!

@ChrisFix - Seriously cool af. I watched both videos (replacing the battery & fuel tank in the old clapped-out $500 purchase, and then the paint detailing here) and I was gobsmacked. The clarity of your thoughts put into clear commentary, the excellent video footage - while you do the actual work - this takes so much effort. Then on top of it brilliant editing of the final upload. All so well-planned and executed. Well done sir, and all the very best from locked-down Australia. Don't let the COVID git cha!

I would put a little WD-40 or Goo Gone on the spots and wipe it up with a microfiber (you may have to do it a few times), and it should come off!

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.
