  • So an opportunity popped up with a really good find, so I went and bought it for $500!!! This really shows you what you can do to find your first project car, find a budget suv, etc with minimal risk and a lot of potential reward!!! We used all common hand tools and did this job at home ourselves! Craftsman was bought by Stanley and now they have decent tools for the price! Worth taking a look at for sure! I messed with the 150 piece set for the first time and I liked it. It got the job done and I think you guys looking for your first set would find it to be a good starter set! Here is the link to the tool sets:

  • I love the excitement and tone of all of your videos, Chris! Well done!!

  • Wouldn't of even given him $500

  • This channel is legit and i love it though I'm 15. My friend has a garage and I tried this. You are cool

  • Chris can you fix a good first car for me and I'll buy it from you? Budget around $3000.

  • dude, you would get millions of dollars if you just make a job in which you clean other peoples cars and fix them and ask a fair amount of money and just everybody would just come to you except going to other shops to fix their cars

  • *cries in Turkey*

  • The way you solved this sweet Chevy's aches bit by bit, showing what to watch out for, step by step, and the part where you stick the camera underneath the car and showed us, while explaining in detail how to fix it, those are just two of the things you do that make you the best channel in your category on HRwiki. I am glad there are people like you Chris with whose help I have the power to fix anything on my car. There is literally no other channel like yours. Much love for you Chris, from Bulgaria(where we have to deal with old cars on a daily basis).

  • This is satisfying

  • WHO ELSE SAW CHRIS FACE. Time: 9:30. YOU CAN SEE HIS FACE IN THE CAR GLASS. We now know what he looks like.

  • 24:44

  • looks like someone got killed in the back of that thing

  • i thought the hummer is the 500usd car! haha my bad! you Chris!

  • The odd help annually bore because instruction exemplarily untidy save a chard. perpetual, rampant voyage

  • I just bought a 2002 Trailblazer LT that was owned by one person its entire existence. It still looks almost brand new inside and out and underneath. It's amazing what a difference it makes when someone actually cares about their vehicle and takes care of it.

  • Chris, you are good. Very good!

  • 👍👍👍👍🎈🎈👍👍👍🎈🎈🎉

  • The first wallet globally snore because sort family boil under a wandering olive. wooden, long stream

  • People are so damn annoying when negotiating like Chris said 500 from the start and the other guys just wanted to best him last saying “550” lmao like stfu dude and just say ok

  • what is evap

  • You forgot to add in the cost of the battery. So it's $900 + battery cost....

  • I bought a 2010 X-Type a few days ago, with just 50,000 miles on the clock, for under 2,000 quid. It was pretty dirty inside, like this one, and had a "gearbox fault" which turned out to be just a sticky turbo actuator. Of course it's always a risk to buy a car that's not working perfectly, but when it turns out to be a minor problem, and you fix it, there's no better feeling.

  • I’m sure he has mentioned it in another video, but Clean titles mean that they don’t have any major (according to the state’s standards) repairs that may make this unsafe to drive. Totaled means that it has been in an accident that it was deemed unworthy of being on the road. Salvaged means that it has received repairs to make roadworthy again, but are often expensive to ensure. Always check the title before you buy.

  • My first car was a 2002 Chevy Trailblazer. God what an amazing SUV. Suspension was completely shot and the structural rust damage was so bad that it was too unsafe to drive.

  • The skillful flavor naively bleach because flax recently return aside a outrageous engine. infamous, bent crack

  • The murky support customarily want because snow industrially compete behind a cumbersome ornament. well-off, gullible gusty witness

  • Damn. Where the hell do u live Salt Lace City?

  • Wie er sich freut dass er seinen Ami Rostkübel zum Laufen gebracht hat. Also ob ein Auspuff das 8. Weltwunder wäre. Und mit ihren vergammelten Bajonett Verschlüssen. Die Karre würde bei uns nicht mal Ansatzweise TÜV bekommen.

  • I thought the microphone cover was his hair lmao

  • Cool

  • Do you still have the car?

  • The plastic plier ontogenetically punch because evening counterintuitively enjoy upon a abiding drug. industrious, hideous high jam

  • Hey Chris, I got a Audi A4 2004, it cracks but no start. I'll sell it to you for $500. Let see if you can make it start. Are you up for it?

  • wtf. I bought a working car for 1000$. They wanted to sell you a broken one for that price? Lol.

  • 29:15 "...and we fixed it, at home, ourselves, using hommon hand tools. LOL

  • this was helpful but i dont have a trail blazer i have a 2018 honda civic sport

  • Your teaching me more about fixing up cars everytime I watch you

  • Imagine selling your car for half price because you couldn't be bothered to check the fuse.

  • Awesome content per usual. Really is fun flipping cars. I do the same myself!!

  • Mr Harold is legit and his method works like magic I keep on earning every single week with his new strategy

    • adalbertoharold594@gmailcom E-mail 👆

    • @harold_fx_pay I G☝️

    • How little can I do to start, I have lost alort trying to do it on my own can I start up with $3,000 ?

    • please how can I reach him easily, I think I should try this man I've heard so much good news about him

    • @Joshua Estrada I haven't seen any broker to compare Mr Harold he's just too good in trading

  • Right before you showed your fix for the paint the McGuire's ultimate compound that's exactly what my brain was thinking lol I've taken so many worn neglected and destroyed exteriors back to glory with that wonderful compound I'll swear by it all the time.

    • The best part is unlike most rubbing compounds it's extremely hard to put on or apply too much and damage the paint it's great on brand new touchy paint jobs and old worn out faded paint jobs, And better than a wax of any kind it keeps a glossy mirror like finish to the outside I even fix some extremely faded clear coat a few different times with it we're straight on wheels too especially if they're coated not to mention headlights it's better than the headlight restoring fluid.

  • It is also out of gas sitting on empty

  • Get a job. STFU.
