    Well today, i got my sample of fluid film. I immediatly started thinking of places where i thought it could be used. So, like and idiot, i remembered that the mounts for the brake pads on my exmark were starting to rust, so without thinking of the consequenses, i proceeded to spray some on both of the mouts on the mower. Well, 15 minutes later, i set off to mow, less then a minute into the first lawn, i realized my stupid mistake (you can probably guess what happens next!!!!), the fluid film had gotten into the brakepads too!!! So, all of today, i have had 1/2 to 3/4 of normal braking power which made for some very wide turns!!!! What a pita!!!

    OOPS!! LOL

    Sorry for the long post!

    So far I have loved my free sample. I used it to remove the bed of my truck. No broke bolts and everything that was rusty removed with ease. I am still looking for things to use it on. I may have to buy myself another can here sometime soon.

    I can say the stuff does have an odor when you get it on your hands.

    I agree, the stuff works great, too great in my instince, but, halfway through my last lawn, i noticed that most of the rust from that mounts was gone, stuff is great, im going to use it tomarrow to get the tines off my tiller!

    I'm use to having to use the hot metal wrench, but the stuff is good. And the free sample Idea will insure that at least a few more cans are sent to me.

    Sounds like good stuff. I've never heard of it. Where do you get it?

    No, that offer was for lawnsite members only. It ended last week i think. There was a thread about it at the top of the commercial mowing forum for at least a week and a half. Its gone now so i assume its over. Sorry for the misunderstanding.
