Hey @RND1 if you want to come up to Maine sometime I will coat your truck for you.

I still have a couple of gallons of wool wax left.
Very generous offer! Thought you were using FF on your rigs? I was in Ogunquit last week and saw a really clean white 80 was that you?

Our warehouse is in Fall River, MA. And no... we don't apply anything. Although we did install a lift for testing purposes.
There are so many undercoating products out there, and the ones that are still left in business all perform well I think. Naturally all of us have our strengths and weaknesses. I'm more familiar with Krown. They have been around for a long time and they are very popular in Canada. The product performs well but their major weakness is the very low viscosity. Krown never stops dripping. Many NH Oil undercoaters have converted to applying Woolwax for a variety of reasons. Their product also performs well....but the major issue that we hear about NHoil is the extremely strong chemical smell. Undercoaters have told us that they "feel high" and that some of their employees refuse to work with it. I'm sure we have some weaknesses at Woolwax also, but offhand I can't think of any right now. :)
You sound like a very stand up guy, the product seems about as good as it gets too. I live in a relatively low salt state in the scheme of things, but even still my cruisers stay parked if there is a hint of it on the roads and I just drive whatever sh*tty beater I currently have. Thinking about applying it anyway just bc of all the moisture/humidity lol.

I always used fluid film until
This year. Bought a 5 gallon bucket of wool wax and have tried that. I have a couple gallons of both left currently

My 80 is green and unfortunately wouldn’t be called clean with the awful pine sap issue I am having at my house this summer. I have spent hours trying to keep up and I have given up now that high school soccer season started with double sessions as well as my full time job.

Awesome. Please let me know as i'd likely use a HF cheapo and toss it after as well (unless it was somehow actually cleanable).
One of the things i read about the woolwax vs fluid film was that it dripped a lot less during application.

While i'd plan on laying plastic down underneath my application area is a sloped driveway and i worry about it running down into the drains. I'm gonna have to do it laying on my back under the rig but worry about corrosion in the wet PNW :bang:.
There is way less salt on the roads here I don't worry
While WA is far from being a “rustbelt” - thought I’d comment that our state switched from non-salt de-icer to straight salt some decade back for the exact reason @Wompom touched on - the salt goes down drains & ends up in the ocean & we’re trying to protect salmon/the ocean in general.

So since my 80 is my go-to vehicle over the Tundra in frozen conditions, and my dedicated rig for going up to Mt Baker ski area, I may start going to a preventative coating since we all know once rust gets a start on a Yota, it is like a kid who discovers Pop Rocks :p

Alot of people never heard we as a state switched until this last Winter we had a shortage of road salt that made the news, and people thought we were still using calcium chlorate (or whatever it was called, I forget TBH).

But people here should keep it in mind we’re a salt state now. —Take it as you like.—

Does this product damage factory paint in any way? A bit tangential to the topic but I just bought a Land Cruiser Pickup, 1994 FZJ75, and it has an OEM Toyota drop-in plastic bedliner. Although I'm high and dry in Riyadh, I will be shipping it back to the southeast US and have been looking for a product to coat the bed with under the bedliner.

I did not know that, I know Oregon uses volcanic rock or the calcium Chloride deicer so I don't really go to Washington and my Cummins has put a fine coat of oil

@bob1008 Should have flagged this for you the first time.

The WoolWax I purchased is still unopened, but I have used Fluid Film for the last 6 years. I does no damage to anything as far as I can tell. I rub down all my bar work with it as well.
