    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:

    Probably should have explained the difference between polish and compounds. A lot of people have no idea. An explanation of the paint and clear coat would have probably helped. Many people would probably not understand that polish band compounds break away the clear coat, and the wax protects it.

    Hello Chris, have to say that 500$ Chevy look great at the end. If possible, I wanna do some repairs/improvements to my Ford Focus cmax, like restoring black to outside plastics, and give a revive to the painting by also fixing some lacks of paint in one or two places. So my question is, for the plastics the ceramic product is the best? Also for the painting could the compound, polish and wax be enough or better to start with the compound and apply the Clear coat?

    Thanks for the video, Chris. I have been wanting to do a little touch up on my 07 Yaris. If the results are good, ill give you a shout out. I do have a question about painting my roof. My brother, a few years ago, walked on top of my car's roof and left a few minor impressions. The roof at certain angles looks a little wavey. What do you recommend to smooth out the roof before I prep it for paint?

    I have a question. I'm planning to do this to my '93 Subaru legacy. The paint is a metallic gold(beige? I still can't figure it out) and is actually in pretty good shape, would the compound be okay to use or would it be better to just polish and wax? Keep up the great videos!
