  • Plot twist: Chris actually hit his own car just to make this video

  • A black car hit my grey car and the mark was white. So it doesn't mean it was a white car.

  • Just used this to fix a paint transfer from a cement beam on my 2019 mustang! I even messed up a bit and forgot to wet the magic eraser. Still got all the paint off but dulled the clear coat a bit. Luckily Chris had a video so I could fix that as well. Looks good as new now :)

  • Hi Chris I want to say many, many thanks. Last nite some ass tried to have a go a my daughter. In panic rubbed down a wood column in the car port. Result bit of dent, pushed most out but lot of brown paint on the silver. Found this video all the brown gone. Paint underneath pretty good. So again many thanks.

  • Hey Chris, thanks for making this video! I tried it out on my car (that I scraped a concrete pole with...) and I had some questions. 1. It looked like the transfer went away as I was scrubbing with the magic eraser, but after I waxed some of the transfer color, about half of it, seemed to come back (the damage in my case is definitely deeper, though). Did I need to scrub more with the magic eraser or is there no way to get the color out except for sanding if the clear coat is scratched? 2. When I was waxing, I saw some of the paint color of my car on the towel (my car is black). Is this normal? Thanks so much Chris! I love your videos!!
