I guess it can be a bit spendy, but I just think it's all worth it.

Those pictures are so beautiful they bring tears to my eyes. :)

As far as cost goes, you pretty much get what you pay for. Fluid Film may cost a bit more initially, but it lasts so much longer than the competition that you are actually saving money in the long run. :cool2:

:laugh: I'm sure in a couple of years that thing will be covered. I've only had it out there for like 8 months now and it's already got that much stuff on there!

Nahh, no fluid film shoes. Let me know when you guys make some though and I'll rock them along with my shirt and hat!

I need to find my extra stickers, because I need to replace the ones on my trailer. They got all faded out from the sun....might need some more, but I'll look first!

did you have the big stickers or the small ones?

DLAWNS

I think they're the big ones. Did they change because the ones that I have the word fluid film is horizontal and I've seen ones that are diagonal? Just wondering.

nope, they didnt change...theyre still the same special fluid film stickers...

I have opened two spray cans that will not spray. what's up with that?

i'd pm dano50 and ask him but here's my best guesses...

is the mixing marble moving? sometimes any aeresol can can have too much product in it causing it to not spray.

where the cans room temperature or cold? cold cans tend to not spray so well.

whatever it is dan should have better more precise answers:)

Bill, I would rather see pics of your "not so rusty" equipment treated w/FF, than cans of your preventative measure, if in fact it really works. Nice pretty cans, there is no way a machine could rust with pretty cans like that. Come on.

Dano, Thanks for the reply. I love the FF and do not mean to run it down , but 2 of the cans in a case I bought came to me not working. Balls rattled when shaken and stored in my shop, [okla temps.]. One of me fave uses is to spray my leather work boots with it for water resistence.

i'll help u out bill. here's pics from one of my threads. this is the underneath of the belt cover on my mower. it was coated with fluid film then at least 20 hours later these pictures were taken....

picture 1- at least 20 hours worth of dirt

picture 2- all that dirt wiped completely off with a paper towel, no cleaner of any kind nor any elbow grease

Thanks for the help. I've been so slammed lately, too much work, not enough helpers, rain, lets just say haven't been snapping lots of pics. I'll work on it though.

Nice pics and nice thread!

Sorry if I came off like an A-hole. I just want to see pics of machines that have been treated with FF over the years. It seems like it would cost a bunch to treat a machine over its lifetime. I just want to see some equipment with some good commercial use that has had FF applied and how they look. Thanks.

i will only speak for myself on this one since i just discovered ff last winter and didn't start buying it until this spring/summer but one of my most impressive ff moments is the receiver/ball on my truck. more than 2 or 3 months after i coated it in ff it's still making the water bead and roll off like nothing, my trailer ball doesn't have a spec of rust on it and is still slick as can be:weightlifter::weightlifter:

It's all good, I just get defensive about Fluid Film.....just kiddin:laugh: I'll try to throw up some pics of my Navigator deck....I've only had it for a year and a half but I hit it with fluid film now and again and it is spotless. I also sprayed it on my trailer where there was some surface rust from scratches and now it shines. A little disclaimer: wipe it in real good before you step on it or you will slip and smash your leg and almost take out your face on a blower rack....just saying.

Thats funny, I hope that you only received minor leg injuries. I have a friend who put composite decking on his 14ft landscape trailer. After accumulated oil drips and gas spills you only need to add a little morning dew or a light rain to slide slide slippity slide. Workers slip all over, machines slip around, a disaster waiting to happen. He has wiped out several times himself.

I may have to break down and buy a can of FF. You guys seem pretty sold on it. Thanks.
