    Does Fluid Film attract dust and dirt? For example, if I spray the entire underbody of a new vehicle year round, will dirt and dust build up on it and make it more dirty then without using it?

    Seems like it makes double work... cuz you'd really need to clean it good to reapply. And if it's not water soluable it would be harder to clean?

    Well that is up to the user and their results.
    I use it allot where cosmetics are not important. Examples; body panel seems, frame rails,assembling hardware, over electrical connections pretty much anywhere I want to lube and seal something and am not worried about some dust or dirt sticking to it...When wet it wipes off and even shines easily..
    It will wear off over time, it isn't a permanent product..
    I still prefer P&B for rust busting.

    We don't use fluid film (although it is good stuff) but use a very similar product. IMO the dirt build up is even more protection. After 3-4 years of regular application the layer gets decently thick and helps keep salt and water from penetrating to the metal. My 06 is still rust free underneath with a nice layer of grime protecting the under body.

    Can fluid film be safely applied to the exterior of engine bay parts such as alternators? I'd like to stop that white corrision that builds up on the aluminum parts.
