Fluid Film and sand.

I drive my TJ on the beach and am wondering if Fluid Film will cause issues with attracting sand in the wrong places.

Your gonna probably want to rinse off the trans skid and the gas tank skid. I found a healthy dose of sand in both places last year. It stuck real nice to the area around the trans mount.

Other than that, what was your experience with Fluid Film?

Well just shortly after the beach run it was given a very thorough bath by Hurricane Sandy so except for the sand deposits there were no other issues.

But were those deposits due to the application of Fluid Film?

Mostly no. The tires pick up the sand and toss it all over, similar to driving in the rain.
