A CAR expert with 20 years of experience revealed the craziest purchase he’s ever made.
Motors pro Car Wizard got into trouble after buying what he said was the worst truck ever.
The professional mechanic took to social media to explain a “fatal error” after his customer sputteredon a new truck.
In a YouTube video, he said: “I just made the craziest purchase I’ve ever made in my life.”
His client said he bought a vehicle for £20,000 without realizing the truck had a “paint problem”.
In the footage, he showed the doors and lower portion of the 2005 Chevy Silverado with scratched paint damage.
The auto expert said the models are likely to chip and peel as manufacturers spray the surface with a matte finish that can be easily damaged.
He said: “The GMT 800 is a wonderful chassis, but I don’t think it should be painted matt.”
“They sprayed it on, but those headlights have seen better days.”
Pointing to the front of the vehicle, he added: “It’s just tight there in the middle of the corner of the cab, it’s got a glutton scratch.”
“It’s faded pretty badly. It’s not even worth resurfacing. Just replace it with a little hail on the hood.”
“I think every single panel on this truck has a big dent in it.”
When the driver inspected the rest of the car, he noticed that there were visible paint chips in the front bumper area.
He slammed, “I’m telling you, it always gives in unnoticed.”
But the list of problems continued.
As he looks at the area in the cab door, he notices that there is a large dent from “someone’s foot.”
When checking the lower part of the car, the mechanic notices that there are some scratches and peeling areas.
He then cautions drivers that they could be in trouble if they buy a car in such conditions, as repairing the faulty paint can cost “thousands”.
“Usually you see these things completely rusted and with no rockers. That’s pretty decent,” he said.
The video has now received over 161,000 views and thousands of likes, with riders rushing to the comments section to share their thoughts.
Giving advice on touching up the paint, one user said: “Rust replacement panels are probably available cheaply, cheaper than trying to glue the rust down anyway.”
“You could repair the cab and doors and then just replace the bed and front clip with later parts from Bone Yard.”
Motorists were stunned to discover they could remove chipped car paint with a £1 household product.
The brilliant tip is to use an everyday household item that you can buy at any supermarket, health or beauty salon.
