Question about using FF on my truck

    I am going to spray the under side of my truck with FF. I have washed and waxed to topside and want to treat the bottom side to prevent rust and corrosion. Any tips? I bought a gallon with the idea that I would pour it into a plastic spray bottle and just do it that way. But after getting under it and washing it down as best I could i am thinking about putting it into one of those spray jugs that you use for spraying bug or weed killer on your lawn a bushes. I have a gallon size sprayer here in the garage. If I do it this way is my container shot? or can it be cleaned out? Does anyone treat their door jams too?

    You can put FF on just about anything. It's not going to come out of a trigger squeeze bottle, nor the hand pump sprayer. You can use an undercoating gun, airless sprayer, or just grab a paint brush and go to town.

    CRAP. I can't lay on my back and brush the entire underside of my truck. What's an undercoating gun?

    Would something like a Wagner paint gun work?

    If you go to Ebay or some FF's vendor site,you will see the guns that are sold with FF for large applications.From memory costs app. $35.

    Don't put FF on anything:nono: the American economy needs your equipment and vehicles to rust away and be replaced, Using FF will slow wear, protect your possessions from corrosion and is harmful to the US manufacturing structure and should be avoided at all costs.

    Now that's a different spin. :p :laughing:

    We actually HELP the manufacturing sector. Caterpillar, John Deere, Case/New Holland and Terex all use us as manufacturers to help protect their equipment during storage and shipment. Thumbs Up

    Thanks everyone. I had rotator cuff surgery recently, so i am quite limited as to what i can do. I did manage to lay on my creeper and get a lot of the truck body done.

    Does veggie oil make the FF less effective?

    Buy the fluid film gun or a in-expensive undercoating gun.

    I tried a air powered paint gun yesterday and it worked without thinning. It was a pretty fine mist but seemed to work ok till the air compressor blew it's cookies. I think I should have FF'd it first.

    I looked for an FF gun, but couldn't find one. I figured ebay would have one. I also looked at the FF site and didn't see one, perhaps I missed it.
