    Tried Fluid film for the first time. I went rite to a 5 gallon pail. I was a little suprised at the the odd smell and the weird color. I started by spraying a plow with the undercoat gun. I was amazed how it stuck to the steel no matter how thick you spray it it doesn't run. I have since sprayed my dump bed and salter and plan on spraying my backhoe and many other things. Im sold for life i always used to spray wd40 on all my stuff. Heres a pic it leaves such a nice film on everything IMAG0101.jpg

    what spray gun did you use?? I bought a sprayer from garbage freight and it didnt do near as good of a job. the gun I used just kinda "splattered it out in a spatter type pattern. Not nice like that. Thanks!

    I used the undercoat gun from the rust store where i bout the FF. I was using no regulator at about 120 psi and it was kinda spattering out for me also but with a little practice i was able go get it to coat well. It was def a little thicker than it probably needs to be but it was better than brushing it on. One of these days im gong to pick up a wagner sprayer and try that out im hoping it puts a thinner more even coat on.

    All it takes is one use of FF to see how much
    WD 40 sucks.I spray it on all my Tuna reels
    for the winter and its the best,easy to clean off too.

    Got my sample, coated the blade of my plow with it. Have had heavy rainfalls and it hasn't effected the film at all. Will definitely be making a purchase shortly!

    It definitely lasts. I undercoated my truck back in November I think and it still has a visible film, even though I know it will still be helping as it is embedded in the metal pores if the film gets washed away.

    I use FF on everything i own.. I introduced my dad to it recently, he wanted to use Wd40 on our boat lift cables and pullies. I said not a chance, lets coat it once and forget about it.. So far so good and it stays wet almost all the time.. I also use it in the engine bay of my boat, like on the battery terminals and things for winter storage.
