That could be fun. If there's a show near you we'll have to set it up.

it's that time again what time you ask picture time!

last monday i took advantage of the night off and gorgeous weather to start work on the underneath of the ford. my plan was to get it all preped for paint. little did i know what a job it was going to be because it was very difficult to remove the fluid film. i was torn because i was having a hard time removing itbut i was pleased because it's not sposed to be removed easy was kinda confusing




if you look at the area's around where i was hitting with that grinder it's easy to see the difference in where the ff is and isn't









that's part of the cab floor, i tried wiping with my fingers to show how well the ff is holding on

that disc is loaded with a combination of ff/dirt/rust etc. everything all mixed together



the dry grey of the primer i think helps bring out how soaked the cab rails/floor still is with ff

that streak is where i didn't get the ff completely removed thus the primer wiped right off





i just put one coat from a spray can on there. i wanna see how it holds up and get the rest of the frame plus whatever part of the cab rails i can clean up done first then everything will get sprayed with a gun then fluid filmed but considering i don't have access to a lift or sandblaster i'm happy with the way it's coming out and i hope these pics help prove how well fluid film lasts

the following pics i feel prove that fluid film stops rust. judge for yourselve's

pic 1- a reminder of the 2 rust spots on that new plow i sprayed back in march



pic 2- those same spots a lil over 4 months later after being cleaned up with a waffle style disc



pic 3- 3 spots that i did not spray ff on and wish i had. just look at the amount of rust still there after hitting them with both a waffle and 24 grit grinding discs



now i ask you, does fluid film penetrate deep down into the metal to stop rust or not?
