dipping in fluid film

i did this a while back but, never got around to posting the pics til this moment. now i've used fluid film on a lot of things since discovering it. i believe this use will deliver dan a lot of pleasure or.... make him spit his coffee at the puter screen see this time i dipped my balls in fluid film what? i did dip my balls my... trailer balls i've got one of the interchangable ball mounts so, i dipped the shank and all 3 balls into my gallon of fluid film. i then placed the 2 balls i don't use in a peanut butter jar and, put it in the tool box on the truck. thanks to them being coated in fluid film i know they wont rust do to the condensation and junk even when not in use i even got ya a pic dan of me sportin my ff shirt + hat while showin off my coated balls

hitch

here's a pic of the hitch and a pic of the shank the balls ride on. i coated the hitch/dipped the shank 3 months ago and both are still repelling the water! you can still feel the fluid film on them when you touch them as well. it's a wonderful thing

At least Dano won't have to put out a warning about dipping some FF between the check and gum's!

Cool pics, and great application!!! That's the first I've heard about dipping trailer balls with Fluid Film, but it's an excellent idea! That will keep them lubed up and coated for a long time. Way to go.
