    Welcome, I myself have been away from this forum for a few years. I am looking to undercoat my 2012 Silverado with something to prevent rust. They use some nasty liquid salt mixture on the roads and the last few years it is doing a number on our trucks and cars in Connecticut. i just don't want to use this product and half way thru then winter there is nothing left on the truck

    It really depends on how often you wash the belly of your truck and with what. our product will stay on if you use a garden hose, it will take a few washes to get it off with a power washer, and if you use a heated power washer or detergents it may come off much quicker. Most people like to do it before the season and once after the season. but we recommend you check on the product as every user has different results based off of conditions and what kind of salts and chemicals go on the road. if you would like more information just let me know or check out www.fluid-film.com

    I like Fluid film A lot, but I'm not really in the mood to spray the underside of my truck twice a year, so I had it done for me. It's a rubberized coating—kinda like a spray in truck liner. I have to go in for an inspection every other year and touch ups are free. They'll also warranty a part of it rusts.
    I used Vesco oil
    But Ziebart is another company that can do it.

    Not impressed with the FF after just one season of use.

    This year I am going with trans fluid mixed with diesel sprayed on with garden sprayer or deck sprayer.

    Dad said ole farmer down by him does it this way with all his new trucks and the frames look like new even when the truck are wore out many years later.

    Will see how this works on a rusted looking frame this season.

    Would it be bad to spray fluid film on the undercarriage of my truck when it is wet from the rain???

    Fluid film may be applied on a damp surface but we do not recommend wet. the dryer the better.

    Thank you

    I am very happy with FF so far, i only sprayed the truck 3 days ago but it seems like great stuff. A friend wants to know if it can be thinned with anything so it doesn't go on so thick. I'm very happy how thick it is.

    $30. For the gun was well worth it, and I'm sure I'll use it for a long time.

    Canadian distributer keeps it pretty high. Auto parts store in my area it is regularly $17/can with tax.
    I usually buy on sale at TSC for $10 and use it for electrical and touch ups.
    My Krown rust control undercoating guys do a good job and throw in a couple cans for touch ups.
    I like fluid film but unless they price comparably I second guess the purchase everytime I pick it up, that just poor marketing. Heck, spray cans or rust paint are cheaper...Good product though...
