    Jeep came up like new…….beautiful work………do mine aswell :)

  2. fordtruck0 Says:

    Wow that’s a lot of stuff! I clay bar my truck all the time. It’s sooo worth it!!

  3. BlackShadowBM Says:

    We need a video on how to properly clean the engine bay!

  4. LatinFG2 Says:

    Very nice episode Chris.

  5. psyfertech Says:

    i use mother mag and aluminum polish for my rims, headlights, tail lights its great stuff

  6. motorztv Says:

    @foxdmulder It turned out great, considering it spends its life outside all the time!

  7. motorztv Says:

    @BlackShadowBM Not a bad idea! We’ll keep this in mind…. thanks!

  8. motorztv Says:

    @fordtruck0 It’s another time consuming step in the whole process, but it is definitely worth it!

  9. motorztv Says:

    @LatinFG2 Thanks for watching and commenting!

  10. motorztv Says:

    @psyfertech No argument there! We were impressed with everything we used!

  11. psyfertech Says:

    @motorztv sweet, im thinking of getting that clay bar kit because i hear good things about it and there are particles and spots in my paint that dont come out when i wax it so hopefully that will do the trick

  12. motorztv Says:

    @psyfertech The clay bar removes microscopic particles, so if you have spots in your paint I don’t think it will remove them. It doesn’t hurt to try though!

  13. deius01 Says:

    nice good job

  14. motorztv Says:

    @deius01 Thank you!!

  15. rlpimpin23 Says:

    carlos ftw!

  16. motorztv Says:

    @rlpimpin23 Who’s Carlos?

  17. AnythingWeThinkOf Says:

    Chris you’re the man! I knew alot about detailing but you’ve shown me so much more. I’m going to try that clay bar. and that carnauba was is whats up. That california car duster is perfect for me because I live on a dirt road. Thanks man!

  18. motorztv Says:

    @AnythingWeThinkOf No problem… glad you got something out of it that you didn’t already know!

  19. asyoulikeitvideos Says:

    Lol, “Use a clean bonnet.” Some English person was probably very confused by that. “I though I was already cleaning the bonnet?”

  20. motorztv Says:

    @asyoulikeitvideos LOL! good point… waxing your bonnet with a bonnet!

  21. t1mmy13 Says:

    What would be nice on the show is a before and after shot :)

  22. motorztv Says:

    @t1mmy13 There are before & after scenes shot throughout the episode.

  23. TRDSpecs Says:

    I think hand polish will not get you anywhere with these deep scratches.

  24. motorztv Says:

    @TRDSpecs The scratch remover does wonders, but you’re right… if you have your work cut out for you, use an orbital polisher.

  25. N00kyn Says:

    well you gotta’ need a hell of a lot of towels for this project =D

  26. motorztv Says:

    @N00kyn True, but you don’t have to do *everything* I demonstrated in this episode. Recycle those towels!

  27. FordTruckClubTV Says:

    Hey, I got power balls too! This reminds me of that axe commercial (the ball washer). Another great video brother!

  28. motorztv Says:

    @FordTruckClubTV Thank you, thank you…. comment greatly appreciated!

  29. op665 Says:

    how fast have you gone in your project mustang?

  30. motorztv Says:

    @op665 Now that the grabber orange one has a supercharger, a lot faster!

  31. Scharfschutze13 Says:

    Whos better? Mothers or Meguiars?

  32. Robinson4643 Says:

    @Scharfschutze13 Mothers cuz they sponsor Motorz

  33. 21mejia25 Says:

    Adam’s Polishes FTW!

  34. GiorgioPanadgi Says:

    production makes the best car detailing stuff you can get..

  35. timecrisisexpert270 Says:

    Are “Mothers” and “Black Magic Shine” the same company?

  36. Michiganborn1969 Says:

    I’m so glad you made this video. I know zip about detailing except for the headlight restoration. That Claybar though looks like it would be a very time consuming pain in the a** if you had to do the entire surface of the vehicle like that. My arm would feel like a sore wet noodle after that.

  37. motorztv Says:

    @timecrisisexpert270 I don’t believe they’re related.

  38. motorztv Says:

    @Michiganborn1969 We tried to hit everything int he episode… and the clay bar step goes really quick, actually.

  39. denno021 Says:

    seriously, how many clean towels do you have :O

  40. motorztv Says:

    @denno021 I keep a good stock of them here, and old ones get recycled for cleanup or taken to the laundromat for re-use. Do you want an actual count? LOL

  41. denno021 Says:

    @motorztv lol, no a count isn’t necessary. Thanks for actually replying to my stupid comment though :P

  42. motorztv Says:

    @denno021 No problem… I enjoy every comment that is funny, positive, or constructive. The rest just get deleted :)

  43. Michiganborn1969 Says:

    Could the headlight restorer can also be used on plexiglass motorcycle windshields? It sometimes gets a little unnerving when riding my bike after dark and on comming headlights makes its harder to see though my windshield b/c of all the tiny little spider web scratches that developed over the years.

  44. motorztv Says:

    @Michiganborn1969 Yes, of course you can use it on your motorcycle windshield. I would imagine any plastic surface will do!

  45. Michiganborn1969 Says:

    Great! Thank you Chris. I’m only familiar with the 3-M brand of the headlight buffing compound but the next time I’m in my local Sacamento area parts store I will look for the Mothers brand.

  46. MeanStang08 Says:

    Awesome tips! that chrome cleaner on glass water spots works great! thanks alot, great Show Chris!

  47. motorztv Says:

    @MeanStang08 Thank you sir!

  48. ThaBR33D Says:

    Buying all these cleaning products… Would it just be cheaper to get a detail at a body shop?

  49. motorztv Says:

    @ThaBR33D No. Once you have all the products it doesn’t cost you anything but time!

  50. SammerJammer Says:

    Cool, ive been waiting for a video like this, nice work mr duke

  51. motorztv Says:

    @SammerJammer Thanks! -Chris

  52. famoushot21 Says:

    good video! but i have a question for you. i have a 88 pathfinder and when i wash her, whenever i dry the top the paint comes off. even when i waxed it, the wax took off paint. any suggestions to help me keep the paint on? thanks!

  53. alpinestar7272 Says:

    @famoushot21 Get a new paintjob….lol

  54. fengstang Says:

    you need to keep it lubricated if you want to do it! lol

  55. 1411funnystuff Says:

    My polisher rotates much quicker than yours. Will that be a problem??

  56. Longstuff Says:

    @nokia26300 That’s a bummer!

  62. motorztv Says:

  63. BeansCanTalk Says:

    Is this a little over the top, a little elbow grease and some car polish should do the trick ;)

  64. E121C Says:

    Hey thanks for making this video. thumbs up.

  65. DreiRN Says:

    I need a lot of microfiber towels…

  67. suddnstar Says:

    I’ve been detailing cars for six years now, and the only thing I don’t touch is the engine compartment. I just don’t want to be held responsible for any damages that I may cause by cleaning that area. I know some people cover the distributor and the alternator, but that still doesn’t work sometimes. With some of those high-tech cars like Lexus or BMW there are a ton of electronic components under the hood. So, if you get some water in them they would be very expensive to fix.

    What buffer was that?

    I stopped watching this half way through. I felt like I was watching a long mother commercial that would not end. It turned me off. Use some tact next time.

  98. motorztv Says:

    Mothers obviously provided all the product, but we felt it was a great episode, showing people how to use most of their detailing products. We had a lot of fun filming it, too!

    Good episode, I just wish you guys would’ve washed the entire Jeep and showed the before and afters so that we can see the difference the work/product makes. Just a nitpick, though. On a side note, I like how you actually respond to comments on youtube. :)

    I have to say I really enjoy your show, but I wouldn’t suggest waxing a car with a random orbital. The problem with using a random orbital to wax is that if there are any contaminants on the pad, it can scratch and damage the paint and leave swirl marks. I have always found that the best way to apply wax is always by hand. However, random orbitals are great for a final buffing of the car as long as it’s a clean, thick, microfiber pad. Once again, love the show, you’re great.

    How well does that Mothers Chrome Polish really work? I have been trying to bring the bumpers on my 89 Jeep Grand Wagoneer back to their original shine and I’ve tried metal polish but no such luck. It’s possible they aren’t chrome at all and are polished aluminum. What’s the difference and what product would you recommend? Great show btw..

  140. Jesse d Says:

    own that model of jeep and have restored the headlights and can tell it would take at least 2 sets of those pads to do a good job.

  146. Chris Truman Says:

    My family watched this video with me and now they wont stop wanting me to clean and wax the cars. I do have a question though, I have a 2004 Impala the bars running near the battery and the air box(which is no longer there anymore, replaced with high performance intake) are starting to chip off paint and becoming really dull. I was wondering if there is a way to strip this paint and re-paint them, and if there is what way would you recommend to strip and paint them.

  147. Talkshitgethit69 Says:

    Best thing to use on your vehicle before waxing is plain old dish soap works better and its cheaper then buying special pre wax and special soaps
