How to Detail Faded Paint by Hand (Paint Correction)

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.

Website I found the car on:

Ceramic Coating:
Buffing Microfiber Pad:

Color Match Paint:
Automotive Clear Coat:

    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. I have a 99 Honda Accord and I have a lot going on that I need to fix such as faded paint , keyed rusted deep scratch and regular scratches ! I don’t know where to start first but I will be doing a color change. I am a female 54 years young so I need all the help I can get. I don’t have a garage to work in so what is the ideal temperature to spray paint after I fix the rust & scratches ?

I wet sanded my clear to remove the orange peel and then buffed it and the result was spectacular i could see myself like a mirror but here is the problem.. after a day on a sunny day the paint surface was like there was honey on it and the orange peel reappeared out of nowhere. I wet sanded it buffed it again all ok and then the sun did the same to the paint. Iam looking for an answer why is this happening
