Almost 5 million views! Sheesh thank you guys and especially the doubters. I’ll be posting full videos soon once I get monetized. 😉
Qual nome deste produto !!! Sou do Brasil
Que es ?
You need : 1. Compounds 2. Heat gun 3. Water and sprayer 4. New armrest
@Kim Rosenberg a brand called: OEM
@Ehis Michael it's the amount of money you need for a new armrest
@Yulio Kharisma He did..
Your a mind reader
Loved the part where he fixed the armrest by installing a new one 😂
@Allan Billings the wear is gone after like 2-3 coats of paint?
i know right lol
Nope, look at the grain pattern its the same 🤷🏻♂️
Maybe learn to read. It was repaired never said installing a new. Maybe the customer didn’t want to pay for a new one and just wanted to get it covered for cheaper🤔
I am impressed. It's amazing how good a replacement armrest can look!
As good as a new one.
Very smooth jump cut, didn't realize the new armrest at all 👍🏾
@JACK JACKSON oh Jackson I just saw your comment. You don’t need to challenge me bud I posted a bunch of videos already. Even 50/50 repairs where I can change the texture completely. Even same ones with damages like this where I just fill and heat the texture on. 😘
@JACK JACKSONHe used a patterned roller
@yeldarb hot glue guns have glue sticks you feed into them, they heat the glue up to become sticky, you glue a circle to a clean area of your desired texture and then once it's dry you unstick it and the part that's been stuck to the area has the texture imprinted into it, you then use that to dip into paint and press it onto areas where a filler has been used. It definitely works, I did several spots on my dash like 5 years ago and it's still mint today, you can't even tell where I made the repairs.
This is real. Look at his other shorts where he shows a half done and half scratched armrest.
@JACK JACKSON you get that pattern with the sponge
Perfeito!!!! Preciso de um acabamento deste nível
Como eu queria um profissional dessa na minha cidade 😉
At the end he used a jump cut in the video, & replaced the armrest with a New one!
@brody tell your mom to not cheat on your dad no more. Flirting counts as cheating 😂
@Christopher Damian Prieto don't make me repeat myself, son. Now go apologize to your grandmother.
@brody that’s what your mom told the mechanic last time huh?
Wow that’s awesome!!
For all those wondering , yes it’s two different cars.
💯 The seat on the left was black, and then light grey.
@Auto_Recon_Ronnie why would someone lie on the internet🤣🤣🤣
@Max lol that’s how humans work, this isn’t new you’re just growing up.
What an amazing occupation! I am sûre this work is so satisfying
Damn! Those are some serious skills!
I love the bit where it switches from the repaired vinyl to the one with no previous damage...
Bought a new armrest at the end. Love it. 😂
He did not buy a new one, there is another video to prove his skills that shows the process better, he did his job well!
@Nick Nick Yea well this 🤡 charged $150 for this repair. Not sure what happens in the States, but dealerships dont TOUCH repairs like this in Canada. Anyone with half a brain knows this repair of this type will last a couple months or so of daily driving. Also a reason why "the finished shot" was VERY short. Because it was replaced. No other reason to not show off your "reapair" and only have it viewable for 0.05 of a second. 😉 pretty obvious.
@Bob Billyagreed! But most dealerships don't want to go through the trouble of finding one. So they pay a company to come in a fix stuff like this so I looks better. Problem is it's rough not smooth like the original. It would drive you up the wall putting your elbow on it. Worked for dealerships for 18 years seen done many time.
Look at his new video proving yall wrong 🤣🤣 How yall look now: 🤡🤡🤡
Amazing. Most people would just buy a new arm rest cover
He did lol
@Gonzalo Salazareverything there was around $100 total💀
Not always easy to pull the part out and replace the vinyl. I had a repair like this done at a pretty reasonable price in the past
Most people don’t have magic glue and sanding materials or an industrial heat gun though
As long as that material soaks into the threads. Hopefully the paint doesn't chip, but it looks good.
Perfeito!!! Very Good 😊
This guy is so magnificent he can even change the colour of the stitching in the armrest
Donde se compra gracias
Easy to change sticking color. Sharpie pen. Get some imagination people. This is easily done with polymer clay/ paste, silicone texture sheet, acrylic paints and finishing waxes and varnishes.
Hah😂 lighting shift can make any stitching different color… yah’…. One has to be an artist to understand…
@Living By Love and the fact the armrest has been sprayed
What do you know from 84 likes to 12 YT is stealing likes now
As good as new!😊
I'm a big believer that paint and spackle can fix anything and that's essentially what this is. I've painted roofs, countertops, you name it. I was trying to figure out how I was going to repair the vinyl add a card that I just got, since it's a Mercedes I have to be a bit cautious. Just need to know what the materials are and I can get to it.
"just try not to rest your elbow there anymore and you're good"
@Michael Hanson it's best not to get into a internet fight when your WRONG. 🤜
@Nunya Businesshow to say you don't know proper english grammar without saying you don't...
@Auto Kingdom Definitely still Applies 😂😂😂
Your sick bro that looks brand new brotha great work my friend to bad ya wasn’t near me ahha my car need this type a talent haha
Wow. Didnt expect that!
Good job. 👍
Man thats a whole different arm rest in the end shot.
Ight thank you i was like that two different shits
B/c it has been repaired lol. I'd be pretty mad if I took my car in for a simple repair and I got it back looking like the same, jacked up armrest.
Watch the extended version its the same armrest nothing is replaced only repaired
It changes colour from dark grey to black
I saw this many years ago, before KZhead. I really need to learn to do this. I have many to repair.
I like the part where they skip steps, jump cut to other shots, and replace the armrest with a completely new one in a different car. That's some Hogwarts magic right there
Ya...I tried it. Not like the one video shown. Not completely look new. Still got scar like. Haha...
@Joey Villarreal it's the surface texture that gives it away. I love it . Experience doing this job is how I know. Good that you stick up for him though.
I'm not a hater and yes in most cases it's like new and you can't tell. However if you've ever done this type of repair you will know flat smooth vinyl is easy but it's the surface texture that is hard to replicate the pattern on the vinyl to be identical. Hence the new armrest. But still deserves credit.
@Karthik Karthik it has everything to do with the grit you work with
@Donovan Morris I think you might want to scroll up and read my last few comments
Where did you buy the new armrest?
I loved how he showed how he fixed it step by step rather than cutting into the fixed scene.
Como hacerlo y que le pones porfa en espanish tank you
@Joshua Mack what does that have to do with any of this turning black?
@David Cabrera well, sometimes it’s better way to understanding each other’s etc. I really don’t know, it it’s. But I’m literally looking about it is.
This sarcasm right?
That is too much work!
That was so gratifying to watch!
Fantastic work well done you certainly know your craft
Wow so talented!!
Wasn’t expecting that result 🏆🤩
Great work. Looks great!
Wow. Lot of work but satisfying to do it yourself
Wow this is excellent work I didn't know something like that could be fixed awesome
You need to do that at my gym 😅
I need mine replaced didn't know it could do that mad skills 💪🏾💪🏾
At first I was like, " why the hell are you removing the label?"
this is amazing
You should be very proud Ronnie. Great work and skills !
It's freakin fake, are you out of your mind all of you, check the cuts, over and over again during the video
Attention to detail. Nailed it!
That’s a good repair but he should’ve used a lighter color because now it doesn’t match the rest of the upholstery in his car. If you compare the before and after the color is off so his center consul is going to be a little bit darker than his seats. He should’ve done a lighter color. Don’t ever let anyone fool you by telling you that’s a good repair and don’t let anyone charge you for that kind of repair because it’s supposed to match that’s a good repair
Thats so cool .it's goto be a art to it
funilaria e pintura de couro e espuma foi a primeira vez que vi. Parabéns
Amazing!!!! I realize that after seeing this video. I can perhaps learn how to try to do it myself. Or shall I say my husband do it for me? I realize you learn something new everyday. You never too old to stop learning. Thank you for this video.
We never truly stop learning. Thank you for watching Keysha
Huh, I just brought my split armrest to my local auto upholstery shop it was like 90 bucks to replace the cracked vinyl. Good as new
You should post the full video, too many cuts could be a new armrest at the enf for all we know, but otherwise great work man
That would be cool to do. If only I had everything to fix them with.
Visivelmente perfeito, mas, e quanto a resistência e durabilidade?
Now that’s talent!
😂 it's not talent it's editing
@James Janota it shouldn't have been done though
@Christopher Damian Prieto customers have to understand that they can’t get it perfect. They need to be reasonable
It's fake guys
I love ur hustle... gotta learn from u my dude... thank you for being u...
This is genius! I put black duct tape over mine 😂
Vinyl repair: $150 Replacement from junk yard: $20
Im pretty sure there isn't a very good way to repair vinyl. Your best bet is to replace it, by getting it reupholstered, a new seat from the junk yard as you said, or a seat cover from Walmart. Anything but whatever this is supposed to be.
Wow amazing ! 😱👍
This guy is so good at vinyl repair, he can even re-tighten the seams on the armrest.
Different armrest too
It would be possible if you could actually sand the repair compound ! At the same time, the fact you can means it will crack as soon as your crack sits on it 😂
Damn this really had me I was buying damn it but thanks for the lesson. Things are just too easy to fake now
this guy can actually pull a chicken out of an egg
He had mad skills. And good texturing tools.
Omg so therapeutic 😮
I really need this we’re is the info !!??
Need this ASAP
"Car is basically brand new mate. Not a mark on her. Don't low ball me I know what I got"
Caramba!!! 😱😱. Meu carro está ficando assim, mesmo. Fui na capotaria, eles disseram que: "teria que retirar essa parte do couro fora e costurar uma outra parte para substituir essa . Mas, de toda forma vai ficar diferente, já que é original de fabrica o do seu carro". O funcionário juntamente com o dono da capotaria continuo dizendo, "outra opção seria! vc retira toda o couro do assento. Mas, agora estará esse assento diferente dos demais. Mas, vou dá um bom desconto para vc". Eu fiquei: 😱😱😱 retirar todo couro e não só parte!!! Não fiz nem um, nem outro estou andando com uma capa e protetor de assento. NÃO QUERO NEM VER COMO ESTÁ A SITUAÇÃO. Fico pensando 🤔🤔: SERÁ QUE NÃO TEM GENTE CAPACITADA, ASSIM COMO NO VÍDEO? Parece que todos só que Explorar seu 💰. 😔😔😔😔......
What happened to leather? I thought vinyl was a record that got played in a record player lol
That's amazing I didn't even see you switch out the old armrest.
because he didn't and you're just jumping on the bandwagon. Dudes legit
holy shit amazing
Daymmmn I need that
When your editing skills exceed your repair skills!
@Stan Smith Drop video
Look at his new video proving yall wrong 🤣🤣 How you look now: 🤡🤡🤡
Brand new things i can't believe what u do but understanding alot u very did it.
🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 you funny asf!
I had no clue this could even be done! Well done man!!!
I wish you were in CT. Not easy finding good car detailer. You are a master at your craft.
I didn't think it could be done so neat without replacing it!
it's just plastic of course it's no problem fixing it all you need is heat
Seems like so much work for such a little job.
Nicely done! Good work
