The real problem in snow states where they use alot of salt is the places where you cannot get to,inside the frame,spots in the body where it is sealed completly and collects water in time..etc
Only time the body rusts from outside in is when there is a bad spot missing paint.

I know they use it on fertilizer application equipment and fertilizer is as nasty as salt. How often you have to reapply I have no idea. I would think in the fall and in the spring would be adequate.

Fluid Film does a good job at inhibiting corrosion and can be applied to electronics. I used this when I worked on a remote tropical island for the USFWS and we applied it on a weekly basis to our radio and electrical equipment to prevent rust from forming. The salt air in that environment is highly corrosive and rusted my stainless steel leatherman in less than a month - probably comparable to MI roads in the winter.

I can't comment on the durability of an underbody application though - I would reapply maybe every couple of weeks to prevent any rust from forming, depending on road conditions. I would definitely reapply an underbody coat after heavy salt or rough road conditions because the film will be worn down from abrasion. If it is your budget you may want to consider a long lasting solution like POR-15.

I put some fluid film on my winch over a month ago and most all is still there. Even through several rains.

I bought a case of 12 for $65 shipped on another forum from a guy who works in the FF warehouse. Its amazing who you can meet on the internet.

I use fluid film on the aircraft I work on all the time and I also use it on the under carriage of my jeep. I shoot every area I can think of about 3 seperate times during the winter, It works excellent!

I guess how much of a waste depends on what you buy it for.

I had several trucks with snow plows that we would soak at the beginning of the season......snow and salt rinses away effortlessly, and after 2 years since they were last sprayed, the trucks and plows are completely rust free.....Great stuff

Fluid Film will last at least six months. No drawbacks. You can find 11.75oz cans at AutoZone.

Good Luck!

Rain will not wash off Fluid Film, you need a degreaser product. You can purchase the product now at most Automotive Stores. Try your local AutoZone Store. You can find it near the WD-40.

Fluid Film is a Lubricant that blocks out moisture & oxygen to keep metal from rusting. For the pasted 55 years it was used in the heavy duty marine market & oil rigs to prevent there equipment from rusting out. Also was used by NASA & Boeing on the Space Shuttle. It's eco-friendly and as a lubricant its one of the best because the product doesn't evaporate.
