    Next one April 2020. If you need a spray just reach out between before it drops below 45F.

    Reserve your spot!

    Timeslots:
    1) 8-8:15 @TOMB (cause I know you are a early riser)
    2) 8:15-8:30 @DrFunker
    3) 8:30-8:45
    4) 8:45-9
    5) 9-9:15 @tacobell007
    6) 9:15-9:30 @Boston10Taco
    7) 9:30-9:45 @13CTOLD321
    8) 9:45-10 @Razorback
    9) 10-10:15 @CT18Tacoma
    10) 10:15-10:30
    11) 10:30-10:45 @FRESH OJ
    12) 10:45-11 @ptat
    13)11-11:15
    14) 11:15-11:30 @GMAN62465
    15) 11:30-11:45 @JMazItalia
    16) 11:45-noon

    PREPARATION:
    min = just show up
    Good = take off your spare tire ahead of time
    Better = add removal of large skid plates that will block access to the underside
    Best = all of the above plus remove the plastic cover on the inside of your tailgate, remove the rubber gasket that blocks the cavity behind the front fender visible when you open the front door.

    Preparation: power wash the undercarriage and put your spare tire in the bed. That's it..

    I spray the entire underside of your truck with the commercial sprayer, it's best to give the truck a good power wash and remove the spare tire before you get here.

    $40 per taco covers everything. I'll also have coffee and donuts on hand for everyone attending. Everyone is welcome to hang out, just keep in mind I'm in a cul-de-sac with lots of kids around so be careful driving in and out of the neighborhood. I'll post the address as we get closer.

    Other vehicles are welcome. Anything but a taco $50 including full size trucks.

    Looking forward to it. This will be the 5th FF meet. If anyone has questions let me know. I also have lots of references

    If you cant make Sunday and are in the area PM and I'll get you done at your convenience

    I'm going to empty my garage of taco things I'll never use. All random stuff will be free for the taking.

    Hoping to make it this time. Definitely worth it, even with the man sized truck upcharge :p:duel:

    I bought a fluid film kit last year but haven't gotten around to using it yet. Kinda figured I'd pay attention to how you do it and pick up some tips for when I start doing my own
