I had the Krown rust-proofing done yesterday, so I'm good on that front. However, I do have a question about Fluid Film. I am considering getting under the vehicle and trying to spray every nook and cranny that the Krown Proofing might have missed. Will Fluid Film on top of Krown have any dire effect? I am guessing not.
From what I've read, Krown does a good job of coverage, including confined spaces. I doubt adding Fluid Film (or Rust Cure Formula 3000
) would hurt anything, but it also may not be necessary. Since a Krown
application carries a warranty, I'd ask them before applying anything else. It's probably more important that you don't inadvertently wash the rust inhibitor off using a high pressure, heated car wash. Fluid Film specifically warns against that, and a Krown treatment will probably also be worn away with repeated pressure washing.
Whatever you choose, as long as you regularly inspect and re-apply a rust inhibitor as needed, I'll bet the truck will be fine. Of the 2nd gen rust threads I've seen, none of them had an example of a regularly treated frame experiencing heavy corrosion.
