    I know that its inevitable that a plow is going to rust over the coarse of its life, but is their anything you guys are using on your plows to help prevent the rust? EX: wd-40, silicone spray anything? I was used to plowing with and older ultramount that was full of rust. Last year I bought a brand new ultramount and I would like to keep it looking good for as long as I can. Thanks

    We use Fluid Film every fall and spring before we put our stuff away. WD 40 isn't meant for rust proofing.

    My last plow was coated with line-x. Just got a new plow this year and at the end of this season, I will break it down and get this one shot with line-x too. Just make sure the front of the molboard is the smooth liner.

    Me too. I would like to try the brush can again. I liked the first one very mulch before it was run over. :(

    I think you already have my address.:nod:

    Just like a crack or meth dealer arnt you?

    I got the free can.
    1st thought "yeah so". Then I tried it on a couple things. In disbelief about how it worked so fast and well I could not control myself after that. I tested it on a door hinge. I tested it on a rusted nut on the alternator under the hood.

    This is where I became addicted, The over-spray shot on a corroded electrical connection. The fizzle and bubbling it made amazed me and brought me to new highs of disbelief. It not only cleaned the green corrosion out it protected it from more corrosion.

    I tried it on my under-hood light that had the bulb rust froze in the socket. Half hour later it was loose and could be replaced without damage to the light socket itself.

    This is when I noticed the small free sample could not be wasted in any way or form.

    I hid it from others that might see the can setting in the garage. I hid it from the wife. From the kids. I hid it from anyone but myself. I used this amazing spray can now only a small squirt at a time all the while having cold sweats from thoughts of running out.

    Soon I knew I had to find a dealer as now that free sample has me hooked and I find myself shopping for it at late hours of the night on-line.

    I still hide it as I can not take the chance of anyone in my family becoming addicted to it. ussmileyflag

    Thank you for sharing that, it is always good to know there are others suffering the same fate. we were considering a support group but it seems no one wants to kick this addiction. The big concern is; when will the government start regulating its distribution.

    Can I get fluid film in Canada? Ive never heard of it.

    I have a LT BLIZZARD & there are some rusty areas that I can tell will get worse.
    I was thinking of grinding them out & painting them over first though.
    Would that be a good idea?

    Fluid Film is certainly available in Canada. Just contact our Canadian distributor for a list of retailers:

    Northland Sales
    P.O. Box 790
    Bobcaygeon, Ontario K0M 1A0
    Tel: 705-738-2321
    Fax: 705-738-4550

    See, the hardest part about being a Fluid Film pimp is that so many people just BEG for second and third samples, and we only provide one. I'm sorry if you cannot overcome your desire to keep things rust free and lubricated. Don't blame me. I'm just the pusher man. :D
