I've had my 4Runner sprayed every year since 2019 with Fluid Film. The first time I had it done, the guy opened the can and had me smell it before he proceeded. The smell doesn't bother me. Wool Wax or Blaster Surface Shield doesn't have the odor apparently. I pay around $120 for my 4Runner to have someone apply it.Heed my advice:
DO NOT SPRAY FLUID FILM ANYWHERE NEAR YOUR VEHICLE UNTIL YOU KNOW WITH ABSOLUTE CERTAINTY THAT YOU ARENT SENSITIVE TO IT.
MY experience with Fluid Film…
I’ll just get it out if the way here: for me, Fluid Film is the most vile, horrible smelling contaminate I’ve ever encountered. Yes it definitely slows down rust - but for the ultimate cost of permanently contaminating the vehicle with its vile stench. It’s godawful.
Spray it in your doors? Might as well sell the vehicle afterwards because it will stink forever — especially when the car heats up in the summer. God it’s horrible.
Some people say it’s stench doesn’t bother them - well lucky them. Others like myself can’t get near that horrible stuff…. and the stink never goes away.
If I had one regret about something on my cruiser… it was spraying that godawful horrible Fluid Film on it.
I eventually had to sell my cruiser. I could never sleep inside it again.
- THE WORLD’S MOST HORRIBLE RUST PREVENTATIVE-
At least that’s my experience
