PostSubject: Fluid Filming the Fleetwood   Tue Jan 22, 2013 5:50 pm

For the past 2 or 3 weeks I have been cleaning, wire brushing (on a grinder) and painting the underside of the Caddy which was in pretty good shape. I jacked it up and used my 4 jack stands along with the creeper. It made the job pretty easy. I went from back to front.

Well after buying the Fluid Film spray gun kit, I decided today was the day. I bought a gallon of FF and put it in the 3 spray containers that came with the kit. I did it in the two car garage under. I also waited till the Mrs. went to work at 9 AM, to keep any complaints about fumes to a minimum. Glenn tipped me off that it smells, even though it's not a solvent. I believe it is lanolin based.

Here goes, it is real easy to apply and seems to go a long way. I would say you could get 2+ cars out of a gallon. It worked very well with the small compressor that I have. It covered very well and stuck to everything. One of the good things about it, there was absolutely no dripping. It probably took about 30 to 45 minutes from start to finish. I didn't do inside the doors or fenders, that will be in better weather. There was no cleanup, but I dropped the car down and backed her out, to keep the smell outside. I also opened the garage doors for 1/2 hour to let it air out. Not the best day to do that at 13 degrees. After that there was no detectable smell.

I think it was $89, then they gave me 10% off plus free shipping.

Here is the Kit: http://www.kellsportproducts.com/fluidfilmkits.html

Scroll down to where it says: Fluid Film "Pro" Undercoating gun

They say do it once a year, the cars I don't drive in the winter, maybe once every 5 years?
