    Canadin Tire , John Deere, TSC stores and I think Home Depot. Watch the John deere dealers though, very pricy. TSC is the cheapest I've seen so far.

    Old thread but wondering what you guys pay for fluid film in Canada. I got some prices and cans are between 12.99 and 14.99, gallon containers are 62.99, 5 gallon pails $250 and a 55 gallon drum is $2000. This stuff is expensive here, do you really think it's worth it. Has anyone found somewhere cheaper to buy it. I've been using Krown, does anybody know the difference.

    I got the same prices from one of the auto parts stores. I bought a gallon to try. The stuff looks like instant pudding. I sprayed it on the 2 V box spreaders and the frame of one of the trucks. It is still stuck on the spreaders, even the vertical surfaces. It seems like a pretty good product. I also sprayed it on the bottom inside part of my doors, along that fold.

    Thanks, seems a little rich, I think I might do a lttle cross border shopping. We spray everthing down pre season and post season with Krown. We use a little more then 1 litre on a pickup and 2l on a tractor. We jack the trucks up and go under with a creaper, I think it helps. We also drill holes in the doors and rockers and take the tail lights out, to spray in.

    I need to price the five gallon buckes. I was hoping they would be around $100.

    So Dave, you've really come around on the FF. Any testimony you care to share with the group LOL?

    Ok, so I want a 5 gallon pail, but Im in Canada. Find it kinda funny, that the fluid film can says NLS products bobcaygeon ontario on it. So I looked it up and called the place wanting to buy some. Won't sell unless I make the minimum order of 12 - 5 gallon pails.
    $207 each plus shipping. Said places in the US wont sell to me and that I couldn't buy it from the US... which I find weird however I haven't called any places in the us yet. Seems kinda silly that I see it at kellsport for $159 a 5 gallon. Is this made in canada? cause if so that is pretty sad, that I can buy it cheaper in the US then I can a few hours away where it might be made. Where ever its made its gotta be in northamerica and that means duty free just pay the tax at the borner. OR am I missing something?

    The bobcaygeon people are just the distributor for Canada. You would be better of to cross the border and get it. I bought a box of Aerosols and a 5gal pail this spring from someone who was meeting another someone who sells it in the USA.

    Everyone needs to make a buck and the more hands it crosses the more you pay.
