I got rid of that stuff when I downsized my home,that's why I went with Amsoil over FF/WW.
I will try super gluing the straw in place,I have several products where the straw stays in place,I thought this would be no different.Live and learn I guess.
Amsoil should improve it's applicator.

Not everyone has the option, Jimmy. Where I live there is only one manual car wash in town and half the time it isn’t working.

Oil undercoating is messy, but the Fluid Film isn’t so bad. Having that layer between your steel underside and the salty slush sure makes me feel better.

The two choices in my general vicinity have all the earmarks of being either Fluid Film or NH Oil Undercoating. Does anybody have any involvement with either?

now that you are up north take some pics of your rust free truck and save them. A couple of winters and the rust will appear.

troverman So yesterday I sprayed my one ton dump with Wool Wax. It sprays fine from the same gun I already had for Fluid Film.

In my opinion the Wool Wax is the superior product. Much thicker, and if you get black like I did, you can see where you’ve sprayed and where you haven’t more easily.

The downside is you tend to use more. One gallon was not enough for me.

Anybody use this? Is it better then fluid film? They offer a kit with a spray gun thatís run by your compressor.

chknkatsu first time i've heard of Woolwax. I've used both Fluid Film and NHOU, currently I have a coat of NHOU on the truck. I might give this Woolwax a try.

either way, i think as long as you're using these products you're doing 100 times better than people not doing anything.

I also coat my truck twice a year. heavy coat in the fall and a heavy coat in the spring (outside and inside the frame) so i never have to worry about losing the protection. I think with my coating interval i really dont have to worry about anything no matter which product i use. I've had my truck for two years and now there is a thick layer of oil/gunk on it (its a good thing)

troverman I've always used Fluid Film but plan to try Wool Wax this time.
