Question for everyone... I got a deal on 2 of the spray cans of Fluid Film and figured I'd get some opinions on it before I tried it. I've seen it mentioned before, but that's about it. Has anyone used this before and how did you use it? Also does anyone have any application vids?

I figured I'd do the axles and start the frame rails inside as best as I could.

Thanks!

It's a rust protectant. A lot of folks talk about it on here and some other forums. Made me curious. Figured for $18 I could try it.

Well.... Since you've been slightly helpful round these parts figured I'd cut you some slack. :D

Figured for the $15 I'd try it out. Just seen it mentioned but never really in depth on use.

I'm impressed.... KB can google! :rofl:

The folks who know about this stuff swear by it. Guess we'll see how it does.

I love the stuff use it mainly on my jet ski but also coated the jeep frame and cleaned the wheels with it to keep the brake dust etc from destroying them.

It's surprising how many people have not heard of this stuff.

Love it. Use it a LOT... don't get it on rubber though... it can make it swell.

Thanks for the swelling tip. The website says that its OK, but wasn't planning on it.

I use it on rubber all the time and haven't had it swell yet. Was this common for you or do you think maybe a bad can?

I use the new WD-40 silicone spray. It dries to a tacky finish, spraying water on it just causes it to bead up and roll off. I have never been fond of WD-40, but the new silicone spray works as advertised. Works on plastic or steel. I sprayed the whole underneith of my JK. Now I don't live in a harsh enviroment, (SoCal) so your mileage may vary.

Hmm. Skeptical. Sorry CG (lives, and works, in a harsh environment). Still...:)

I've used it to undercoat my JKUR. Works great. I have no new rust since I've used it, and it last a long time. Also, it's less toxic (if at all) than most.

Hmm, when my WD runs out I will have to try some. When I wash my Jeep I would have small patches of rust on the frame. Not anymore. Held up great in our last rain two nights ago. No rust anywhere. Still tacky feeling.

The recommended application for Fluid Film for an undercoating is every 6 months to a year, depending on the conditions.

Cool, I just researched their website. Looks like they sell it at Grainger, I have one of those 3 miles from my home. Guess I will pick some up. What do you guys use, the aerosol or the gallon with sprayer?

This sounds good. When it's sprayed does it have a waxy film texture to it ? I remember my 97 ranger had a film like that on the frame from the factory but you could rub it and it would smear off.
