    i got several v box spreaders and rather new trucks. any ideas on what i can spray on the undercarriage as well as the boxes to cut down on rust? We clean em up after each event and in the fall they get wire brushed, bedliner painted on bare metal and then the whole thing repainted with an
    anti-rust paint. It gets old each and every year and we've already had 3 events since Thanksgiving! Thanks in advance

    Check out Fluid Film http://www.plowsite.com/showthread.php?t=26374. This is remarkable stuff.. I sprayed the back of my truck, the wheel wells, the plow blade & the spreader.

    You've got to be careful - it's still slick after weeks of being on.. Step on the wrong spot & you'll be looking at the bottom of the equipment.

    You can't go wrong with soaking equipment down with diesel fuel either. Get yourself a cheap hand sprayer and go to town. You will have to reapply periodacly and hace to pressure wash well in spring but it will do the job if your diligent.

    One word Corrosionx

    I have used it for three years now and have a two year old salt spreader that looks like its new. I spray it down after every snow, right after I wash it.
