Good point here, the 100 series and 200 series (no experience with older series) has "unprotected" rear fender arch. Meaning, the interior side of the fender arch, if you run your finger along it, it's just simple painted metal, no factory textured coating (unlike the main of the wheel well), I often wondered why Toyota did that. Also, I have also NOT seen much bubbling paint/rusing in this area, my co-worker's 1999 LX and my 2011 both have tons of dirt and grime build up, but dirt won't hurt the car...weird. My OCD makes me clean the sh-t out of this thin strip of metal and now I'm thinking between POR15 or spray with FF.Do you need to remove the plastic fender liners before applying FF?
Winter....... “Say Hello To My Little Friends”
I have about a month before it’s “Got” to be done again.It's that time of year again. I reapplied yesterday then took a drive down the dustiest dirt road I could find.
There is a reference above to getting it dirt immediately. Is it not better to let it dry while it is clean?
No just spray FF right over the mud. If the mud is EXTRA thick, the fluid film sticks even better to it.Thanks for the clarification. So I shouldn't wash the undercarriage even after mudding, just leave it muddy year around?
Do you need to get all the mud off before FF is reapplied the next year?
I personally bought one of the FF guns but in the end wound up using cans with the spray wand extensions and that worked extremely well. I use a combo of FF and Surface Sheild. The straws and wand extensions, being such a small diameter fit into all of the areas of the frame and doors without drilling. For any larger surfaces, the can spray tip was sufficient. I still have a gallon of FF and the gun sitting here but will wait until I gather everything needed to try it out, of which the compressor was my concern. Still, with a gun, cans and extensions are needed for the other areas if you dont want to drill.Any one applied fluid film using a harbor freight electric paint sprayer 'Krause & BECKER
5 GPH Electric Paint Spray Gun" or similar.
I have read this works too but looking for some one to shed some light on pros and cons if they have used it. I dont have a compressor at home but I did buy an undercoating spray gun and a home Depot bottle that it screws onto. My friend has a 6 Gallon compressor but read that its too small. So was thinking about renting one from HD, but also thinking that it may be just cost effective to go the electric paint sprayer route. Any thoughts ?
