You could do it, but better with two cans to be thorough and put on heavier.

Does it eventually dry, or will it stay sticky?

Doesn't seem to be accumulating too much grime. Definitely rust free

Once you use it there is no going back. Stops the rust and existing surface rust on cast parts once sprayed gets wett thus darkens so as to blend in and no longer looks like a rusty cast part.

The stuff cannot be beat in my book. Jkeeper10 turned me on to this stuff back in January February, heck were using it at work now on all kinds of equipment, parts, and tools.

Can this be applied with the pump style sprayers which are used for lawn care? Not sure how viscous this product is.

I have a 1 gallon can of FF but have not yet applied it. Should just open the can and check it out

I will bet you can. I would shake it regularly while applying and then drain what you do not use back into container when finished. It is sprayable through a rattle can and standard spray equipment, and you may not get the finest pattern but I will bet good enough for the application your planning on.

Love Fluid film! If you drive on salt or brine covered roads FF is the savior you have been looking for. Cheap and easy to apply and has a unique aroma!

OK, this thread has given me a new project before winter. I am going to get this stuff for the Jeep and my truck.

If it's any help. I picked up half a dozen rattle cans at Lowes ($8.99 ea) and I did my Jeep with two(2) cans.
I'll touch up before the trip to the beach and then again before Winter hits (probably/maybe) based on how it looks now - not much touching up required)

Can you use a standard window cleaner type sprayer (trigger type)? I have HVLP guns but would rather not put this in them.

It comes out of a rattle can (normal nozzle) so I can't see why any standard sprayer wouldn't work (window cleaner type or otherwise)

Thanks! I think we do have two Lowes stores in town and one is not too far away. I saw that Canadian Tire stocks this stuff too for any other Canadians that may be reading this thread. I bet I pay almost double for it here though.

As a guess it probably will not go through a (windex type bottle) but you can always try it. Harbor Freight has super cheap spray guns. If you have HVLP guns I would assume you have a compressor. That would be more than sufficient to get the job done.

As a side note, Fluid film would not damage a high end spray gun in any way shape or form. In fact it would be allot easier on them then say for instance polyurethanes, epoxies and lacquer thinners. Easily rinsed out with mineral spirits, and actually good for the seals. Just saying I'm all too familiar with high end airless and conventional spray equipment.

Buy the 24" 360 degree wand, it fits into the drain holes in the bottom of your doors, in the hood and tailgate. I sprayed my rockers frame and anything else that had a hole in it. It's definitely worth the $15.

I coated the Jeep and my truck on Saturday. It does smell bad so I did it outside in the alley. I didn't want overspray all over the garage floor. I let the truck sit outside all day and pulled it into the garage that night. When I left for work this morning the odor in the garage was like a punch in the face. I really hope the stink tones down soon.

Yeah it's an odd odor. Couple days you should be fine.

It does tone down. Takes a few days. I personally have gotten used to the scent. Reminds me of when I played baseball and had to break in a new glove.

Fluid film questions

Can someone either answer this or post a link?

So, I live in the snowy north and want to try fluid film this winter to try and curb the rust.
1. What should I spray and what should I not spray underneath my Jeep?
2. Anyone have any pictures of theirJeep after it was sprayed? I'm curious as to what this stuff looks like.
3. How long does it last?

Thank you in advance.

Buy the wand that fits the can with 360 degree end. You can spray inside your door drain holes, inside the hood, tailgate, take your tail lights out and do inside. Spray inside your rockers underneath, inside the frame. Some people spray the underside. I did anything with a hole but passed on the whole underside. I did mine last year right after I got it new. So far it's still in there, don't know for how long.

It will look like you coated it with wd40 only thicker, gellier. After awhile it will collect salt, sand, grime, etc and turn into a thin black paste. Youre still protected, it's all on the outside of the barrier.

Spray everything but the brakes and the exhaust. Even spray into the door crevices. 3 cans for a 2 door and it's oozing.

Where to do the spraying? Driveway, grass, street, neighbor's grass?

I sprayed mine in the driveway. It's going to go everywhere (eyeglasses, clothes) with even a little bit of breeze.

I didn't use a tarp but you could.
