Prevents rust, especially from the amount of salt Penndot uses around here in the winter. Normally I will just use fluid film. But I had a can of the rubberized stuff lying around. I only try and use that stuff on the main frame and fluid film on anything else just in case I ever I have to work on something.

Yep, I agree 100% with that statement. Ice fishing is a blast too! Pack the cooler, load up the ice house, and drive out to the middle of a frozen lake for 10 hours of a good time. We even build bonfires on the lake too when it gets a bit chilly.

I don't Ice fish. But going out on a frozen lake is so neat. You are out there and I just think that I shouldn't be out here! Sorta like Iceroad truckers!

undercoating is very beneficial, however, in my experience painting truck chassis, the better you prep the frame the better the paint sticks and prevents rust, you have to scrape the rust bubbles/paint blisters to achieve a more uniform paint job, other than that good job on undercoating

Because The ladies grass was pretty high, it was a nice fertilized lawn, and I don't cut her grass. She didn't and I didn't want to cut her grass too much, so since I was bagging with my honda I raised the wheels up a notch.
