    Has anyone ever waxed there truck with Fluid Film? If so how does it work and how did you apply it? Thanks for the input.

    I have a 1990 f350 with the original oxidized paint. I used it last year and it looked great. Although it did not last as long as "nu finish" wax. I sprayed a towel down and spread it on and used a second dry towel to wipe up the excess. way easier than waxing.

    I think wax would be much cheaper.

    Have you checked the price of wax lately. I will spend a few more bucks on ff if it works better than wax. To me its worth in the long run. The cost of your paint now flakeing away is priceless!

    I can buy ff for only 6.25 a can and if its better than wax, im all for it. I spare no expense on a truck, tractor, etc that makes me money and puts food on the table!!!

    There is no way FF is going to be a better wax\sealant then wax from a automotive store! Great product for everything else, just not to wax paint.

    You spend 6.25 on a can of fluid film needing at least a can to wax your truck once or 5-10 bucks on a good carnuba wax that only needs coating 2-3 times a year. Thus yielding about 3-4 years of waxing before needing replacement. I guess your math is better then mine:)

    I find it hard that it takes a whole can of FF just to wipe down a truck.

    And how many times have you waxed a truck? Its not that easy.

    why not wax the truck with regular auto wax then wipe down with FF. Double protection!
