For those that use undercoating...

Have you used Fluid Film? I am looking into it for my truck, as i want the frame and cab to stay in tact. If so, how much did it take to do the underbody? On a side note, how about the chassis black by eastwood? I like the classic look of the black. Thanks

Re: For those that use undercoating...

i read somewhere that the fluid film traps moisture in and makes it worse if i recall correctly eastwood is a good company

Re: For those that use undercoating...

Fluid Film is AWESOME at keeping rust away. However, it is not a very clean option. Fluid film is a lanolin (i think that's how you spell it) based product and it will not wash off with just water. However, it is completely safe for all paints, glass, rubber, plastics, ect. It will not deteriorate rubber like grease or oil can. I have used fluid film in areas that you just cannot get to paint. It's funny, even a year later after you spray it, it will continue to "creep" and spread into every little nook and cranny. It never dries like rubberized undercoating and it kinda "heals" itself if it gets rubbed or scraped off. However, because of the fact that it never dries, dust and dirt really stick to it. But I don't see how it could trap water in, in any way.

Re: For those that use undercoating...

I will probably use por-15 topped with their chassis black coating after some research. I'll just clean the frame really well, leave any rust where it is and just grind down all the old undercoating. Prep it with their metal prep and let her rip. That will be my summer project i think. I like a very clean look so thats why i'll probably stay away from fluid film.

Re: For those that use undercoating...

I'm going to strip and paint my frame as well. Pull the bed etc...

Take a look at east wood rust encapsulators and other frame products..

Also, take a look at Krown.. Good to keep rust from doors can corners etc.

Re: For those that use undercoating...

I have a guy i work with that used the stuff that ford uses on the 7.3 oil pans. I believe it is a rust encapsulator. He said the stuff has been working great. Just needle scaled the frame, power washed, applied, and topped with a chassis black. It seems that POR-15 has a very picky prep. I am not removing the cab/bed, etc so its going to be tough to get all the spots i want. My biggest concerns are really the axles, frame and underside of the cab. The bed cross rails need repair anyway so im not doing them.

Re: For those that use undercoating...

Fluid film is fantastic. But, like previously mentioned, it is not clean. I sprayed it into cracks that I could not paint and it has stopped the rust. I love it.
