  • This mini-series should be fun and educational, and then once Susan is fixed up, you can buy her here using the eBay Motors app: so we can raise a bunch of money for charity!

  • I actually have never seen a car where you can open the fuel inlet without opening it from the inside and unlocking it with a key, is this jsut a thing in american cars?

  • 00:54 Just FYI that is 100% wrong. Lanemarking paint will NOT come off with any cleaner or anything you can buy. Once it is on there, it is permanent. That is the entire point of it, to remain on the road surface for decades without needing to be re-painted again. The only way to get it off is to sandblast the entire part(s) down to bare metal and repaint them from scratch. Its a mixture of thermoplastic pigment, micro glass beads, probably silica, and other very hard to remove crap. It will never just wash off with water, and polishing over it will scratch the hell out of your paint.

  • What did you do to get it off of the plastic grill? Watched the whole video but the explanation for the girl wasn’t clear.

  • can you use paint remover on glass?

  • A Chrysler 200? I’ll pass

  • What's wrong with Susan? Her car always got vandalized extremely hard. Edit: apparently Susan is the name for that car. (o.O)

  • i’m a 17 year old girl that used to be so intimidated by even looking under the hood of my car and now your videos make me feel like mechanic lmaoo. watching your videos make me want to buy project cars to fix up myself

  • I seen 100% Carnuba wax remove spray paint off a car like nothing. It melts the spray paint off like it never existed.

  • Big fan of you I like your video

  • Wears mask in his own front yard with nobody around... 😬

  • I like how there is never any hate comments. Chris seems like a genuinely good guy.

    • Thanks Jay! I try to be haha

  • Its suspicious how the mud in the car is always the same look etc... Chris you not fooling us on that one

  • I find it very interesting! However could you please narrate in a normal voice instead of in a pitched shouting. Many thanks

  • Its not soapy water its soapy wooder😂😂

  • How to remove cement from paint plz

  • wow, thank you

  • did anyone else see that artifact at 17:03 it completely messed me up for a good minute

  • Susan looks great XD

  • 6:02 it wouldn’t turn to rust because that hood is aluminum

  • Susan pissed someone off

  • Imagine if you are the one who spray paint this car and saw this on HRwiki

  • It’s amazing

  • Also send the video of auctioning the car...with the new your another new vlog channel.

  • Can’t you just use petrol to remove the paint and it won’t damage cars paint

  • Nice video! Thanks

  • personally i think overspray looks cool!

  • Is this the same guy who has the cat Sebastian? LOL Voice is the same!

  • Wait a minute.... How did you walk right through your tool cabinet at 4:30 ?

  • Im suprised the car was scrapped then salvaged just from a spraypaint attack

  • What is good for removing spray paint from an air conditioner , wallpaper and doors? Hope you can help.

    • For an air conditioner try using the paint thinner method showed, for wallpaper you should be good with some rubbing alcohol, and for doors (assuming it's wood) you should be able to use something like acetone with no issues!

  • Can you do a side front and back door raised strip molding repair ? Like your videos.

    • Thanks for the video idea!

  • The clay bar looks like a cooked marshmallow

  • *Chris' microphone: exists* *me for the 5397th time:* "Yoooo, what's with his hair???"

  • Is there a conclusion to the end of this challenge from eBay motor sports? ....

  • The few fierce cod histochemically manage because green reilly allow qua a strange whale. truculent, complete harmony

  • Don't use thinner on Acrylic paint. It will ruin your paint.

  • I'm waiting for some less than intelligent individual to use a razor blade on the paint because it's faster.

  • Just salute this guy !!!

  • I see a price tag for 3650$ and he asked for 5 O_o wtf.. give him 2k and one "that's the best I can do..."

    • That was the bid amount lol

  • This is amazing! Do you think this process would work on really old paint that no longer has a clear coat? I have an old 81 Dodge that had paint kicked up on it and I'd like to get it off without screwing up the original paint job. Thanks so much.

    • I'm a huge fan of those plastic razor blades that he briefly mentioned in there, they really work great if you're trying to be gentle. Got a rusted/scratched/dented up (well it was i guess) 2000 gmc sierra and i had to really give some spots a light touch and with a little lubricant and that plastic razor blade scraper i saved myself a huge headache on multiple spots where i needed to seperate base paint from top coat stains/spots/etc. One thing i would recommend is a legit handheld scraper where you just interchange the blades though, really gives you that extra control. You can buy the 2-4$ ones that are pretty much everywhere but the ones with a handle that usually run 8-20$ depending on quality/location are incredibly useful and will actually last. Plus i use them for literally every scrubbing/stain type situation around the jobsite or house because they're just so handy for scraping anything, and you can even re-sharpen your plastic blades to re-use if you're in a pinch or running low (or obviously just throw a new one in) but them things are key.

    • I would only use the less agressive methods in the video (isopropyl and maybe paint thinner but be careful) and it should work!

  • Damm 3.1M y’all’s cars fuckkedd uppp frrr😂

  • Little pro tip, if you find your car has been vandalized with spray paint, some WD-40 and a rag will wipe it off quickly if it hasn't dried in.

    • Thanks for the tip!

  • when he was cleaning and saying look at that how clean the panel is now, and I was like no there is a spot that time I realised that it was my dirty screen who needs cleaning as well😂

    • "Monitor Super Clean" video soon :p

  • I have a question........... who would do this do a car like if you wouldn’t

  • Wow! somebody hated Susan bad.

  • Car name

  • Can the same procedure be used on plastic trim? Thanks.

  • beautiful broo,,, how I can remove paint on the car seat

    • Thanks! I have a video on that, check it out:

  • btw, i remove the sticker's glue with cooking oil. i'm not sure if it works on car's stickers but for knives and bottles sticker's glue it works perfectly well.

  • Imagine the person who vandalized the car watching this.

  • Magic Chris.

  • i had to do that once =( not fun at all.... i was totally mad the entire time too.

  • You got the car for $100 more than your highest bid, that's some good negotiating Chris! Good stuff!

  • S

  • The guy who sold the car is probably screaming

  • A few questions: You said that the solvent might damage the plastic and that you would show us how to remove the paint from the chrome and plastic. Did I miss how that's done? Also, what do I do if the clay bar does not remove the yellowing? Finally, how well will this work for dark colors like black? (I ask because black reveals fading more obviously than white.)

  • You paid 50,000 for that car??

  • my friend hit a deer. dont worry grab you microfiber towel some compound and zip ties and bam. look at that good as new.

  • The Chrysler 200 is a nice looking car.

  • this man really can do any fixes on cars

  • i realy learned alot from you chrisfix

  • How much did you sell this car for? How much profit What charity did you donate to?

  • Great job!

  • Rhe razor wont scratch the glass because glass scratches ata level 6 with deeper grooves at a level 7

  • I feel like I've seen this exact same car in previous videos where someone trash the interior with dirt. I don't know where "Susan" lives or what this person does, but they should rethink there lives. :D

  • WD 40 also works with some light spray paints

  • You just made money out of a vandalized car. Like it's the person who vandalized it with intentions of ruining your time actually helped you earn more money...

  • Another great video, thanks for keeping it real! @AutoFixEZ

  • The stale expansion multivariably fetch because fight frequently fence off a delicate hot. slimy, unbiased plasterboard

  • hello christopher fixtopher

  • Plot Twist: it was one of his younger family members who had a paintbrush and used his car as a canvas and s*** all over the interior. PS: HOW DID THEY GET IT ON THE DOORS AND ROOF ARE THEY SPIDER MAN???? LOL

  • Probably an insurance fraud claim. Most of vandalism are keying or spray but not to the extent when someone goes inside and make sure to trash the interior. Probably the owner didnt like the car (chrysler junk) and decided to get a check to buy a new one

  • How do you drive this car at home? Cops and Guys would laugh you so hard....

  • Am I just the only one that watches videos for fun

  • I just found this... Im hooked

  • If this was salvage titled because of the vandalism, can you take it to an insurance company and get it reversed after this? Nothing structurally or mechanically wrong with the car, just that they didn't want to pay for the restoration.

  • Loved this series Chris! Thanks for all your advice and tutorials. Still waiting on the tutorial on how to fix deep scratches!!

    • ​@ChrisFix Thanks for the reply! I can't wait, I've got a buddy whose Fiesta ST needs some deep scratches fixed and I'm gonna fix them as a Christmas present. I found your channel about a year ago and thanks to you and your videos I went from never having done an oil change to regularly jacking my car up to do all my own repairs! It's been an incredible journey and I would've never attempted any of them if it hadn't been for your instruction. So far I've replaced thermostats, struts, shocks, plugs, coils, sensors and I've done all my own fluid changes.

    • Thanks a lot! I'm working on that video now, stay tuned!

  • I'm seeing a dream car that's one car that everyone would love first it deflates tyres and water thing bu

  • Think Susan has a jealous ex??

  • I wanna see you work on trucks

  • I'd just plastidip over it but it's good to know the proper way.

  • You make me feel ashamed about the bird poop that left a stain on my black hood and can't get off. Ima try some alcohol.

  • “eBay motors will match that... me: that’s pretty dope ...Up to 5000$!” me: damn stingy mfs lol

  • That looks like rubberize paint not basic spray paint?

  • No one: ChrisFix: here's a nice long key mark Peace! Just bought an old sentra thats why im here again 🤣

  • Excelent content.

  • So today I bought a vehicle with cheap vinyl on it and used a very heavy duty bug and tar removed used only in dealerships after removing the vinyl, however now the adhesive left, is smeared and will not come off, any help?

  • How do you remove Paint from a Vandalized Car ? Get the Car to a Shop to be painted That's how

  • Yoo did you ever make the vid with removing a scratch if it was in the paint instead of clear coat?

    • @ChrisFix will thanks!!

    • Not yet, I'm working on that video now, stay tuned!

  • I want to know how much the previous owner annoyed someone for this to happen.

  • Can you test the paint thinner under the hood or trunk lid

    • If it's the same exact finish as the outside then yes that would be good spot!

  • hey i got spray paint on the inside of my car what do I do????

  • I want to marry this guy

  • It was better when has been vandalized

  • This guy is a cure for a car

  • баклажка вайтспирита и готово, полчаса базарит не о чем
