    • Hey Chris I love watching your videos you are so thorough and make excellent video's. Not sure if you have any video's on rebuilding a rear differential. I couldn't find any. There are a quite a few but none that was the quality that you produce. Surely I'm not the only one that would enjoy such a video. If you happen to read this I would like to say thank you for taking the time to. Thanks for making the best diy videos out there.

  • Hello ChrisFix 👋🏻. I have an idea for a project car. Maybe you can buy a used 2018 Dodge Challenger/Charger (Scatpack 🐝) and Supercharge it, build race seats in, build it on lightweight and make ist look brand new again. Dodge Challenger/Charger are my favorite cars and you are my favorite USworldsr. 😉👋🏻

  • This is a good video for beginners. It’s really good tips but I’ve been driving for ten years and here is how I prepare for winter for my 2010 Honda Accord 1. Buy 2 snow tires and put them in the front and old in the rear 2. Get a shovel so when you get back home you have to shovel out a parking spot. 3. Tape down your hand brake button so in case of emergency you can drift around your problem without worrying about hand brakes locking up ( yes my car is a Front drive ) 4. Go to Dunkin’ Donuts and get a large ice coffee with caramel swerl and cream no sugar because America runs on Dunkins

  • Park your manual transmission in first or reverse gear and don’t apply the handbrake if it uses a cable. The cable may freeze and you can’t release the handbrake. If you park on a flat surface then park in-gear is better anyway to reduce stress on the handbrake cable. Another tip is to make sure automatic wipers are set to off to prevent damaging the blades when you start the car.

  • Pretty good list of tips and tricks, but now I'm more worried about road salts on the car, and wondering is there a better way to protect it, not only the paint, the under the car, like is there a paint to protect a frame and and not wash the car every time when it's not gonna be used.
