I had some nasty rust on suspension areas and whatnot under the back of my car. Last fall I got under it and scraped off what I could and applied Fluid Film. I just checked it and where I applied the Fluid Film the rust was held in check. The Fluid Film was still there and still tacky. I'm impressed, it held up well over the winter.

No, I don't own Fluid Film stock or anything, just thought I'd share.

I love that stuff...my problem is it is hard to find locally. One John Deere dealer I've bought it from by the gallon in the past no longer carries it and claims to never have carried it!

Where do you purchase Fluid Film?

I need to coat the frame of the 1999 S-10 my dad left me after his recent death.

Molakule..I got a can from Autozone. Maybe I just got a bad batch but that stuff was runny like water and is leaking out of my liftgate. I think I'll use some White Lithium Grease next time.

I have some Fluid Film in my stash. Seems to work well as said. I use either that or Krown T-40 in aerosol cans for touch ups. (I take my car to Krown for a full rust proofing annually)

Fluid Film is available from most any John Deere farm implement dealer.

The local John Deere dealer is where I got mine. As I recall, the Fluid Film website had a list of dealers that carried it. It does run a bit, I shook the can good before I sprayed it.

Amazon has it in spray cans and gallons.

Used fluid film in hidden areas under my truck and it seems to work well. Only gripe, and the reaso i have not yet sprayed the entire underbody, is that it forms a black dirty tarry film as road grime gets built up. Very effective at corrosion protection but very messy and nasty.
