    You could do it in 3 -4 cans but you will wish you had a can left over.
    so GV is right 5 cans...

    Buy 10 cans, you can always find something that needs lubed or protected. The stuff is like magic !

    It takes me about a half a gallon With that 20 dollar sprayer. U do the math? Cans are great for small stuff. But buy in bulk and save some $ and have some left for the next time.

    Really? I must not be able to read. So In canada they more then double the price of the gallon but dont more then double the can. Or did u not read that:dizzy: Must be all those taxes they put on it when it gets shipped there.

    Cheapest I can find it is on ebay. 2 * 1 gallon at $70 includes shipping. Plus there is a 25% discount from live dot com. So that works out to ~ $26 can.

    Buy the case- You'll be spraying everything with it once you see how it works. A can of Fluid Film also makes a great gift for the guy who has everything.

    I just bought some at Chappell Tractor in Milford, NH for $5.99 per can. BTW, do you need to wash the underside of the truck before you coat it?
