    Awesomeness in a bucket

    Posted by Joey B on Nov 23 2017

    WOW!!! why didnt I find this stuff years ago. This stuff is the real deal, it is a bit messy going on but once dry its not sticky or running continously. The smell does take some time to dissipate, probably dependent upon how much and where it was applied. I call it the smell of protection. Excellent product.

    FAR better than Fluid Film

    Posted by Scott on Nov 22 2017

    this stuff is awesome, it dries to a thick cosmoline like wax and really protects the metal well without making the car a huge disgusting mess to work on later like fluid film or oil does, it does not attract dirt, bugs, pine needles etc. it also holds up to washing far better than FF or bar & chain oil
