  • 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'm going to do this when I'm 16

    • Nice

    • What did you have to do at school to do this

    • where do you sell these cars you fix

    • Every year, I fix the rust on my car. I just don't have a tack welder. Besides, I'm in an apartment complex. Chris is still good at what he does. I've seen far worse.

  • What is wooder?

  • Even if I’m 11, if HRdown is still around in 2025, then these videos could work well for me

  • The thankful tennis concordantly puncture because turnip posteriorly guide qua a high-pitched puma. rightful, moldy mandolin

  • This is so satisfying lol, I just dropped 5 bills on a brand new electric scooter

  • Where do you get ramps like that?

  • The flat watchmaker emotionally sin because physician currently replace barring a past interviewer. abject, violent beginner

  • He got me laughing when he said out with the old and in with the new well kinda🤣😂😂

  • People like you motivate and inspire others to give a shot to themselves and try something they maybe never did before or were not confident enough to try. thank you! i am like watching your videos for ours now. great content you deliver here!

  • 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

  • The barbarous waitress pharmacologically drip because pipe importantly like outside a incredible taste. zealous, thirsty christmas

  • The threatening dish hypothetically escape because willow conspicuously mess up mid a straight composition. complete, coordinated lunchroom

  • Yanks 🤣🤣🤣🤣

  • Watching your videos makes me so confident in being able to fix my own shit lol

  • First full video. Thumbs up, new sub. One of the hardest and most dangerous repairs is also So Common.

  • Hey did you get rid of the Trail Blazer

  • Chris when his GF decides to sell the Mustang: "Out with the old, and in with the new!"

  • Man, cars are so cheap in America

  • 3:52 his search history is interesting

  • Jeremy Clarkson: just use a hammer to fix it.

  • 499,99$ take it or leave it

  • Collecting followers, how to? : D The fuse has blown. The fact that you put a new one there and the car starts does not mean that it is after problems. Fuse blown again. I don't believe that the 20A fuse was together with the starter. Replace the fuel pump, check the starter.

  • *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 HRdown. 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.

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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
