    Anybody tried this Woolwax yet ? Seems to be a heavier industrial quality Fluid Film. It's getting popular real fast in Canada East. They say it's thicker and has no smell. Looks like it's another Fluid Film product.

    I bought some and will be trying it this winter instead of the usual FF. I can still see a slight sheen under my Jeep LJ from last December’s application of FF, despite a dozen powerwashings using soap since then.

    I agree with the cosmoline. I used to do my old chevy with this. For a time I had a hard time finding it.

    but isn't cosmoline RP-342 more of a rust preventer?? not supposed to creep into the rust and acts as a topcoat....
    so far im finding the carwell is keeping further rust at bay, will be able to judge more at the end of salt season, however it seems to be working well on the normal western rust spots

    Well I have a lot of old trucks, here is what I know and don't. I have trucks I purchased brand new, and at that time applied undercoat, MISTAKE, as we know over time, bubbles, flakes off depending on how thick applied. This will be my first year with cosmoline rp-342 I won't have any comment till late spring.

    You can apply on 'rust', do your best to wire brush as much off as possible, apply thin coat, if using spray cans , shake the hell out of them! Apply temps above 55F, you definitely can see water beed off when washing undercarriage etc. Will it work? I don't know, so far so good.

    Doing my 2018 silverado in the morning with the cosmoline. Did an underbody wash 2days before xmas. Put it in my heated garage and used the air gun off my compressor to make sure it's completely dry. Will be using the oldest set of work clothes I can find. At least it will be almost 50 degrees for this.

    You don't need one. It comes in a spray can with a straw. The cosmoline. You can buy a 12 pack for 130 on ebay.

    They sell it by the gallon as well, I used sprays cans so I could go at my own pace, go back touch up areas, etc. If you go to cosmoline website, pretty good information and their customer service is great if you have questions etc.

    512high, just curious why didn't you do NH oil with the wax and oil spray. Is there nobody near you?

    I am a hands on person, my shop is heated etc, I like to do a lot of stuff myself, when things get over my head, I send it out. Regarding NH Oil, they are about 40 miles away from our shop, I decided to try cosmoline, the only thing my shop is missing is a garage lift(if I had that, lol probably would never go home!)

    So I will see how this goes, granted our shop a floor drains, so after a storm, trucks come in melt away, then we wash, we use an old hand held undercarriage wand for getting the underneath flushed best as possible, but will see how it plays out!

    1 common factor that most suggest is not to use high pressure hot water to wash, as it will take most oils off quicker than cold?????

    Did my truck today. Not nearly as bad as film fluid (less mess). I used 4 cans total, just going to double check tommorow for any spots I may of missed. I sprayed every spot I could get into with this stuff, except up into the doors.That I will hit with wool wax.

    Fluid film has Joy for customer support. Wool wax has Igor. Who would you rather have under the truck with you

    Igor, He’s probably not afraid to get dirty & he’s probably been tossed under a couple trucks in his day
