    Hey guys!

    I have some questions for those who have sprayed fluid film.

    Where do I want to spray this stuff?

    I am going to be spraying the whole chassis, but I want to do the engine bay too. For now I am doing every single nut and bolt in the engine bay until I get some feedback.


    Should I just spray the crap out of everything? I wanted to hose down the inner fenders, firewall, oil lines and all.

    I see it says it's flammable? Does that mean I have to keep it off the engine? Or is it just the propellant that's flammable?


    Any help is appreciated, there isn't much info on applying this stuff!

    just sprayed every bolt in the engine bay not on the engine, every screw, hood hinges, edge of the underside of the hood, oil lines, brake line clips where salt catches and corrodes lines, abs block and brake fittings and battery terminals and ground wires.

    Then did the tail gate hinges, cables, bolts, bed screws and tracks.

    Then did all the 4 door hinges, screws, bolts.

    Then the cab to frame chassis bolts and bushings.

    Also sprayed random things around the house, hose fittings, locks, hinges, water meter, the lens for the electric meter that was fogged over, the mail box and a couple other things to show people.


    I only used 3/8 of a can!

    Before my new truck saw rain I sprayed the entire undercarriage and suspension. After running it through the rain, a lot of it washed away, but a light film was left behind. I don't know if it needed more time to set up or what. I'll probably hit it again though before the weather really turns nasty.
