    Are u serious about the crisco? That is what I'm thinking,cheap and car wash takes it right back off ,and I also thought WD-40 . What's the process ,heat up and squirt on ? The undercoating shops here want 400.00 dollars,seems high,there is a fluid film sprayer in area ,haven't talked to them yet.

    This, on both points.

    When I installed new steering components, I didn't want to paint them so I shot them down with Fluid Film. It's done a great job so far.

    No of course not :D just a joke. I know in the old days my dad and uncle both use to spray oil in their doors to try to keep them from rusting. I guess you gotta do what you gotta do.

    FLUID FILM Sprayer in area ????

    FLUID FILM is not applied like a truck bed liner such as RINOLINER !!!!!!!

    FLUID FILM is an excellent rust inhibiting product that comes in aeresol cans or GALLON cans and is applied by the end user.

    "FLUID FILM is formulated from specially processed wool-wax, highly refined petroleum oils and selected agents to provide corrosion control, penetration, metal wetting and water displacement.
    These long lasting products contain no solvents, will not dry out and will penetrate to the base of all metals, providing corrosion protection from both natural and industrial atmospheres.
    Heavily corroded and/or frozen parts such as nuts, bolts, shafts, etc. that would normally be damaged during maintenance, can be salvaged by applying FLUID FILM."

    I've found that natural SBC fluid seepage works quite well!

    As long as it's covered with transmission fluid, motor oil or gear lube.... It doesn't rust! :D

    So... Why did I spend all that time cleaning the underbody and fixing those leaks. :confused:

    This is no classic camaro I'm driving in snow,its a 2002 base automatic v-6 with low miles,was someone's summer car. I can't afford new one so this is next best thing. I found a local shop that does fluid film,90.00 dollars for a car,I'm getting it done next week,then I'm getting some dedicated snow tires,I'm debating if I should go studs on back but then no rotate
