    Gonna give fluid film a try but my local distributor stopped selling the product. So I saw some online stores selling it as well as Ebay.

    Ebay has it for about $10 cheaper as well as free shipping... Anyone have any experience with buying it from ebay?

    I think I'm gonna go with the dual 1 gallon cans... The aerosol seems to not last very long if i store it.

    If you're getting the gallons get them from kellsport and order their spray gun. With out it the gallons are useless.

    I'm not real familiar with Fluid Film. What is it mostly used for?

    I buy the gallons for $30, then get a 4" chip brush, and slop it on. It stays on the plow for the whole season. The cans are nice for tight spots

    I like ebay for a lot of stuff...Just have to be sure to compare it to online & local retailers. Its not always the cheapest. It seems that you did your research & it is though. I say go for it ebay shippers are usually faster and more responsive

    I've been using Fluid Film and it is great. Sometimes it's too good of a lubricant:) I sprayed in on heavy gate hinges that would barely move from rust in 2007 and it still moves so easy that I had to put in poles to stop he gates from spinning around.

    Mcmaster is the best price so far. A real bummer to just type in Fluid Film. they show you everything but Fluid Film. I had to type in the part number 12055K74

    I guess I paid about the right price... Got, 2 Gals Fluid Film, spray gun and 32oz bottle shipped from Cali to NY for $77 total. Figured I couldn't go wrong for that amount...

    fluid film is the best rust/corrosion preventive on the market. it's also a super lubricant. there's practically nothing you can't use it on. just make sure to read all warning labels carefully before using it and don't use it where you need to walk as it's slicker than ice

    Just don't believe Dano when he says he will send Swag or stickers out to you.\

    FF is worth it without the extra's I guess tho.
