    It said not easily washed off, afterall who is washing anything under the truck with soap much less warm water.

    Umm….An automatic car wash LOL. This stuff seems like it’s just an oil since it’s a lubricant too. I like that ‘rust converter’ stuff that looks like black spray paint, You can spray it on rust and it seals it and stops it from rusting again.

    OLD THREAD WARNING.

    I was gonna start a thread on this product but found that there was already one on it from last year so I thought I’d just kick-start this one instead.

    I just caught wind of this Fluid Film product on another forum and I’m amazed I’ve never heard of it. Seems like an amazing product and I was just wondering what others have to say about it before I rush out to go buy myself some.

    Myself, I was looking maybe to coat tools stored in the shed over the winter and to lube our bike chain and gears, but as you see in the videos below, some people are using this to undercoat and rustproof their trucks.

    I use fluid film on a lot of different things and I’ve also had it applied to my cars and trucks over the years for rust proofing. I find that it makes a great lube and also protects stuff well from rust. I’ve used it on things like squeaky door pins in the house too. I always have a can on the shelf. I’ve found that it makes the best undercoating for vehicles.

    I found some rust developing on the bottom of my truck doors where the steel is hemmed. I obviously have been using this in other places and once in this area. I have been wonder if it will prevent me from adhering a proper repair. I may have to keep using this to get through the coming winter.

    I have a door that desperately needs this. Reg oil did not work. Maybe this stuff will.

    It should do the trick Kevin. One of the great properties of Fluid Film is that it will “creep” so it will work its way into tight places. That makes it great for both lubrication and rust proofing.

    I can’t imagine that thing actually works for undercoating, maybe in the south but not here.

    As for penetrating fluid I use PB blaster, although I’ve seen a test where the best is actually ATF thinned with acetone.

    Apparently it does work well in our climate.

    Even with all the sand and salt blasting? Now that I’ll have to try.

    I’ve had really good success with Fluid Film as an undercoating in both PEI and Nova Scotia where lots of both salt and sand is used. I had it applied yearly to my 07 Tacoma from when it was new and when I sold the truck there wasn’t any rust on it.

    I plan on using it with my snow blower. Apparently it’s an excellent release agent and stays on a long time.

    I use it on the wire rope on my tow truck to keep it from rusting as well on a vice I have on my outside work bench. Also some other exposed metal and it does a good job.

    Thanks Bill.

    I just bought a can yesterday. Will be trying it out on various things over the next while for sure.
