Almost 2 winters, no surface rust. Fluid film.

So I bought my truck the first week of Feb 2016. I drove it home into the garage and had a gallon of FF ready to go.

I was under the truck today and there is no rust. Not a spec. I used a FF drenched rag I have and touched everything up with that at a little out of an aerosol can.

I used FF on my lil Daily driver too. The stuff is the real deal. I recommend it.

I see 2-3 year old trucks with full brown rear diffs at stop lights, mines full black still.








2016 Toyota Tundra dbl cab TRD off-road. High power=low mpg.
2017 Mitsubishi Mirage SE. 5spd. Low power= high mpg.

Three upstate NY winters with FF, looks new underneath.

That's saying something.

I live in NY too. My truck is a 14. It looks pretty good but there's some areas where I can see rust starting. What kind of prep should I do before applying? How many cans do you think I'll need?

Just wash everything really good and after it's dry, spray away.
I used a combo of bulk gallon and the cans. I'd guess 3 cans would do most of the undercarriage fine.

But a gallon is much cheaper if you go that route.

Apply it before the snow flies. I then do a lighter touch up in spring, which I just did. And will do another coat in like Oct or Nov before any snow.

If you look around you might find someone who does it for you. I have a shop near me that has an outdoor lift and uses the wands and small applicators to get everywhere. He charges $100 + the FF cost (bout 3/4 of a gallon).

I'll pay him for both vehicles every November from now on. He can get way more area than I can on my back in the shop and no mess.

I've been using it now for a couple years on my 4Runner and so far it still looks new underneath. I will do the the Tundra in the fall.

A couple of weeks ago I did my semi-annual winter/summer tire swap. Last fall I used Fluid Film on my Tundra hoping that it would slow/stop the rust that had started after 4 winters here in Pennsylvania. I was glad to see that the FF indeed had slowed/stopped the rust on my Tundra and was still there providing protection. I used almost 5 cans of the FF spray cans last year and will be getting more FF this coming fall to do an other annual application. Count me as another believer.

I am glad to see that after several years of me posting about FF, that others are starting to really see why I use it.

My 2010 had no rust underneath when I traded it in last Dec in Mi.

I did normally use 5-6 cans.

The gal version with the applicator actually saves a shit ton of money fwiw. It just spreads better.

I really suggest the applicator and a gallon as long as you have a good air supply.

The stuff works great, glad to see posts about it doing what it does best. I guess it is also great on ringworm on sheep. I have no sheepz to test it on, only vehicles that see a bunch of salt...

First time I sprayed with an electric house paint sprayer (Graco?) which is a pain clean up afterwards. Then I bought the FF undercoating style gun and it not only works just as well, but you can just throw it back in the box until the next time without even cleaning it. FF doesn't ever set up like paint does.

In the fall, wax your truck/change the oil/etc. or whatever you'd normally do before winter and then spray the FF last.
