    i have a local shop that sprays the Fluid Film and NH Oil. he now also offers Noxudol and is pushing that. I was going to go with Fluid Film but he claims the Noxudol is more durable.just wondering if anyone has any experience with this?

    Thanks

    Go with woolwax. It's just a more viscous version of fluid film. I put it on in October and not a spot has worn away. Even in the wheel wells. Also do yourself a favor and spray it on yourself. You can get the pro gun with the long attachments for like $90 and the gallons are like $50. So after the first year you're just spending $50 a year to do it.

    really, it is not required to spray you frame and under carriage already has protective coating

    That's not true at all, especially in states where they put the nasty salt and whatever else down on the roads (or near a coastline where the air is salty). These grease-like undercoatings provide an additionaly layer of protection against these and will without a doubt extend the life of the frame and other members under the truck.

    You must live in a dry tropical like climate. Anywhere that gets snow, salt and rain, oiling your underbody is a good idea.

    My woolwax is still holding strong 4 months later. Highly recommend. Never used fluid film, just went straight for woolwax. I read online the fluid film comes off after a while, especially in the high wash areas like wheel wells and off the frames if you hit a puddle. I just got down under the truck this weekend and not a spot seems to have worn away and it has a nice dirt coating over it to keep it on.

    Thats awesome. Im going to do woolwax at the end of summer. I sprayed Krown underneath but its a very thin oil and i dont know how its held up with our winter. I like that woolwax has a tinted black option. Not only so you can see where youve sprayed, but for people like myself with a 12 year old Canadian Tundra with some expected surface rust, it freshens it up.

    Yep we also sprayed it on my stepdad's 2016 tundra, which had some rust spots. I didn't use the black color, it was pretty easy to see where you sprayed already because it kinda of glosses everything up and the "straw" color is more of a beige and definitely not clear. I just got my truck in october so I put it on as soon as I got it, but I'll be putting another coat on in the middle of summer. I bought their pro gun that has the extension wand and the 360 degree spray wand. So far I'm really impressed with it and glad I did it.

    I have never understood spraying a greasy solution on your undercarriage that easily washes away if driving through abundant amounts of snow and water, like we all do here in the messy N.E. I'll stick with https://www.amsoil.com/p/heavy-duty-metal-protector-amhsc/. Just my 2c. of course. :)

    I feel exactly like you do. I had no idea how it would work#^#& However ours is a multi step process if done correctly and without missing any steepsproduct the biggest step that people do not do not use a cavity wax. I suggest you start spraying front to back by the time you are done spraying you this is when you start the cavity wax every cavity salt gets deep you will also see the places you missed. First thing i should have asked is what state are you in and if you are in the Northeast.

    I guess now would be a good time to update everyone on my experience with woolwax since we are getting into crappy weather here in Ohio and will likely soon be seeing snow, which means salted/chemically-saturated roads.

    I applied the first coating on shortly after purchasing the truck in early October of 2019. My reason for choosing woolwax was simple, but took some time researching, youtube videos and reading other people's reviews on different products. I heard many good reviews about FF, but also saw that it tends to wear off, so I chose woolwax because it is just a more viscous version of FF without the smell.

    After deciding on woolwax, I purchased their pro gun, which comes with a longer wand and one with a 360 degree spray nozzle that's good for getting inside frame members. I purchased 2 gallons the first time, 1 for mine and 1 for my dad's tundra. I ended up using all of it on both trucks. It cost, if i remember correctly about $100 for the gun and $50 for a gallon. I also purchased a couple of the aerosol spray cans in case I missed a spot or needed to reapply in any places, which was much easier than dragging out the air compressor and setting the pro gun up for a small spot. I also purchased a pair of goggles, a 3m resuable respirator, and a disposable tyvek suit. Trust me once you get this stuff on your clothes, it's never coming out so I have an outfit dedicated for when I work on my truck because it's impossible to avoid getting this stuff on you after you apply it and work on your truck at all.

    I covered every square inch of the truck. inside the doors, tailgate, wheel wells, inside frame members with the 360 degree nozzle, etc. it was very easy to tell where I had already sprayed even with the straw color woolwax. Took me about 4 hours to do both trucks. Good thing I'm young because even my back hurt after rolling around on the driveway for 4 hours spraying this stuff.

    I went through the winter of 2019-20 and noticed that over time, the woolwax collects a nice top layer of dirt that kinda protects it from coming off. I was amazed that only 2 places on the bottom had wore away back down to the frame after a while. It was two spots on the frame by the trd pro skid plate near the rear and are directly parallel to the ground. I'm assuming that this is where if you hit a puddle, the water splashes onto the frame. So I touched up those 2 areas with the aerosol spray cans and did the same once warmer weather came.

    Since I applied the first coating in cooler weather, mid october, the only problem I had when applying was that since it was cold, the woolwax became very viscous, so I had my dad heating up the quarts in front of a propane heater while I sprayed.

    I was extremely happy with woolwax's ability to stay on even through all the slush and water and snow that winter threw at it, so obviously I wanted to apply another coating the following year. I went on their website and the had a new product called woolwax HV wheel well grease, I bought a 16 oz can of it and it comes with a firm brush to apply.

    My dad did not want another coating because he was going to change the brakes and rotors on his tundra and didn't feel like getting the woolwax all over him haha. So, I just bought 1 gallon of the woolwax. I applied this woolwax HV on the areas I mentioned earlier that had worn away from the previous year. This stuff is extremely viscous and I really don't see this ever coming off, even in the high wash areas. I'll get a picture of it later on the truck. I sprayed the entire gallon all over the underside again. I skipped the doors and tailgate as it says you only need to apply once in those areas for the life of the truck. I made sure to get into the wheel wells again, I found this time it was much easier to get in there with the aerosol spray can with the 360 degree attachment they have for the aerosol cans. You can get inbetween the plastic liner and the fender and not have to remove anything.

    Overall I would say that i'm extremely happy I found this product and was able to apply it myself to my truck. I think it's cheap and easy insurance to prevent rust from becoming a problem on your vehicle and I will definitely be applying it to any other vehicles I purchase in the future unless I somehow manage to convince my fiance to move somewhere nicer lol.

    If you have any questions feel free to ask and I will try to upload pictures as soon as it stops raining here.
