Anyone doing the fluid film this winter? I just bought a sh!tload for my vehicles. Guy that works for CMP came by the other day to pick up my 71 c10, and he just did his with half fluid film, and half bar and chain oil. Sticks like crazy. Leaves a nice texture also. Thinking i might try it on the GMC.

I fluid filmed this past spring. I did 5 cars, 3 that I don't drive in the winter, and 2 that I do. Unless, I'm missing something (and I may be). The FF that I sprayed on my DD's, you'd almost never know I did it. Seems to have dried right up. I just looked at 2 of the cars that I don't drive in the winter and you still can see it. Not completely sold on it.

I used it on the LDM I had. Only in certain areas, not the whole car as I wasn't sold on it either. Well, I wasn't sold on the car anymore either Wink

It works, but you need to use it more than once a year. Do 2 blanket coats spring and fall, and I do brake lines and joints every second oil change. Haven't had to change a line yet, and I use it to plow with.

Is this the spray cans, or the gloppy stuff in the paint cans?

On a related note, has anyone tried this concoction of ATF cut with acetone that is supposed to be the ulitmate penetrant for rusted on bolts, etc., that I've been hearing about lately? I'm wondering if it would be good for undercoating too.

Don't think it's acetone, it's ATF and something else. Can't put my finger on it though.

It is ATF and acetone for the homemade pentrant.  There have been a lot of posts about it on Garagejournal over the years.  I've tried it, but have no strong feelings about it either way. I just stick with Kroil for the most part.  The ATF and acetone wants to separate, so you always need to shake it up to keep it mixed.

As for the oilingFluid Filming of undercarriages, how do you apply the stuff?  We just bought a low-miles '04 Tahoe that has seen limited winter service and is clean underneath.  I'd like to keep it that way.  And then there is the Roadmaster, of course.

Napa has a fluid film gun, it's $26. Needs an air compresser though

I have a 60 gallon compressor out in the barn, so that should be okay.

You guys do this just under jackstands? Am I going to crawl out from under there looking like Theo Hugstable?

I use a lift, but a lot of people do it on jack stands. Wear a respirator.

Still, the best rust penetrant I've found to date freeing up seized, rusty, frozen bolts is TriZol Penetrating Solvent, made by Castoleum Corp. Yonkers NY

Its concentrated from 100% Organic Degummed Castor oil.

For rust protection, I use (ZeP) IRON CLAD from a spray can, but it doesn't really "soak-in" when there's more than surface rust.

But now you guys have got me thinking about concoctions though:

Glen, I've used quite a few cans of aerosol Bar & Chain oil "straight" underneath my dually.

TriZol Penetrating Oil mixed 50/50 with QuickSilver PERFECT SEAL - SEALING COMPOUND (92-34227 1) from Mercury Marine.

I can't imagine anything to surpass the potential of that combo. I wonder if they will even mix well enough to power spray on?

I sprayed the plow blade tonight. A lot of the PC has flaked off and fluid film seems to work good keeping the snow from sticking.
