Default My Auto Car/Repair YouTube Channel

I personally like printed instructions with pics when it comes to doing repairs. You can print them off and follow them to the T. Now days a lot of people are going to YouTube for instructions. I guess they watch the video and it helps them see what is going on. I don't like it as much becuase I've always used manuals, with them you can slowly follow along and make sure you don't miss something, like a check list.

Anywho, for those that like video's, I have decided to try to join the band wagon. It's near impossible to shoot a video and do work at the same time, it really takes 2 people, then if you make a mistake it's harder to reshoot not to mention editing. Really kinda sucks but if you're going do it you have to do it to work.

So, here's my "repair video" debut. "How to replace a cup holder in a Volvo S70". Don't think I could have picked an easier job. I have several video's with auto tips, basically me standing there giving people information. Those are easier and I really don't like getting my phone filthy while I try to work and shoot a video. Oh, well.

That's awesome - I've been thinking I wanna do the same type of thing. Record all my home repairs and upload them on youtube. Only thing holding me back is I need a decent camera ><

This definitely welcome. It always helps to see exactly how parts are removed and replaced. Every time I went looking for information on how to remove and replace parts on my 850 GLT, your videos came up. I had to subscribe.
