An experienced mechanic with years of experience discovered a “garbage product” that ruined his vehicle.
Scotty Kilmer, who has more than 55 years of experience, warned car owners about this article could “destroy” her car.
The popular motorist urged motorists on his YouTube channel not to use the cheap product.
In the video, he discards a black plastic-based product that restores scratched plastic in your car.
The item states that it is intended to “restore, maintain and protect all types of plastic, rubber, vinyl and genuine leather.”
Although it is a simple fix, the car expert said it can ruin your vehicle.
Scotty claimed he used the product to repair decorative scratches and faded paint on his wife’s vehicle.
But the car expert said the product was “garbage” and instead of fixing the panel, it only made it worse.
He said, “I tried it on my wife’s Matrix and give it an F.”
“I think this product is garbage.”
He pointed to the affected area on the outside of the car and said, “I’ve done this five times and it’s still as faded as it could be.”
“It didn’t help at all. You can see that everything has faded. It didn’t even cover it at first.”
He then urged his followers to be careful and never splash wateron “stupid products” as they can be a “scam”.
He fumed: “Don’t believe anything you read and don’t waste your money on this stuff. I wouldn’t buy it.”
Instead, the driver recommended using pure silicone or agents for restoring decorative paint.
He said: “I applied the trim coat product and it sealed it for quite a while.
“Or if you don’t mind your hands getting greasy, use pure silicone and apply it to rubber.
“Let it sit overnight and then buff it off. That seems to be working.”
Scotty also advised motorists against purchasing flash lights as they too could be a “waste of money”.
“It broke after a while, it’s not worth the money because it didn’t stay on.”. It’s really pretty shitty.
The video has now racked up 73,000 views and thousands of likes from fellow drivers.
Many users flocked to the comment sections to share their personal reviews.
One user said: “I’ve tried pretty much every Restore Black Trim product. They are ALL pure trash.”
“Furthermore, if you touch many of them two or three weeks later, they will leave black marks on your clothes and hands.”
Another added: “I don’t fall for stupid products because I watch Scotty.”
