1. Just a dab on the item
2. Some rubbed into some of the threads on one side
3. A small amount all around the item
4. I slather it all over!

I chose #2 as I figured it would work around as it was tightened.

Spark plugs just two little tiny dabs 180 degrees apart at the beginning of the threads. All bolts get two big dabs 180 degrees apart at the beginning of the threads. Not saying that's the best way. Just the way I do it.

I put a dab then use a dry part of the brush to spread it all around the threads.
The only thing I put it on is O2 sensors.
I dont need any help pulling the threads out of a mod motor head.
And it makes wheel lugs feel grody and packed with [censored]

Usually none. Can't get it here.

I use various improvised substitutes like PTFE or polythene film, wax, grease, aluminium foil, or a rub with an old tyre weight, depending on the application.

I have a very small and locally irreplacable tube of Permatex Silver that I use very sparingly on critical applications like brake sliders.

Depends on how hard the bolt was to get out. Sometimes I just stick the bolt in my little tub of Permatex Copper.

Otherwise, just a dab with the brush.

I try to clean the threads before adding anti-seize too.

I use just enough to get it smeared everywhere including my face, pants, hands, and a dozen other places I can get it back on me throughout the day and all that takes is picking up the bottle. I smear everything up real good.

How much paint do you use when you put a coat of paint on something ? That's how much I use while applying anti-seize with an acid brush. I get the feeling a lot of people don't know what an acid brush is.

For exhaust studs I dab a liberal amount on the studs and face of the nuts. For O2 sensors a bead half a grain of rice amount pressed onto the threads. None on spark plugs.

Taiwan is surrounded by ocean. Are you sure you can't get a "marine" grade at a boating supply?

Extraordinary.

Why would it not be available?

If it's something heavily exposed to the elements like exhaust fasteners I'll slather it all over.

Most of it will get burned off but it provides better than nothing protection (even if it does little more than nothing). I find that the fasteners closest to the engine burn all but a small amount of the anti-seize (touching it will still transfer to hand) but the sacrificial metals remain to protect. The fasteners farthest from the engine like the muffler ones remain like they were just put on it, none of it appears to burn off since the muffler area is fairly cool compared to the cat at the front. I like having them slathered for protection. I have Fluid Film, might try slathering the stuff on the rear with that instead and just put AS on the threads.

If it's something sensitive like an A/F or O2 sensor placed before or between catalyst beds, where some metals can poison the catalyst, I put a super thin amount on the threads only.

I just follow the directions... a bottle of ARP Ultra-torque I bought says to wipe an even amount on the threads, underside of the bolt head, and on the faces of the washer (if used). Considering they've invested more time, money, and brain power working on these things, I'll trust their recommendation.

Au contraire. I have a big bag of those in my tool chest in my garage, and they are exactly what I use to apply anti-seize whenever I use it.
