    The other guy beat me to it lol. They don't have any sort of referral program unfortunately. But they do nice work; I would highly recommend them.

    Okay, I did it.

    This a 2022 Toyota frame in 2022:

    Toyota apparently utilizes child labor, because the welds are, ugh...

    [​IMG]

    When I was blowing compressed air through the frame, water sipped through the holes in welds. Used 2 cans of Noxudol 700 - a cavity wax, went into frame channels and onto frame's top in rear, where Raptor Schutz gun could not reach; 2 cans of 1600 as well, which hardens to asphalt consistency in 2-3 years and laughs at gravel and road debris for the next decades.

    [​IMG]

    But first degrease the frame

    I wasn't particularly careful in avoiding spraying over the TRD shocks, exhaust or rubber boots. Tundra got a much worse overspray 3 years ago, 'cause I've used a bedliner gun, and nothing happened to it :)

    Missed some spots because of tight clearance and very bright sun light, will address it later.

    So, in two decades the car triples its MSRP, because it is:

    - low miles (less than 1,000,000 miles)
    - rust free
    - TRD PRO
    - V8
    - Sequoia

    But I won't sell it :)

    1600 is not a rubber.

    Also paint alone will not do anything.

    Might switch from FluidFilm to WoolWax, just to try it and see if it stays in place longer.

    does anyone know if there’s issues applying woolwax over existing FluidFilm? They’re both Lanolin based, so I would think not, but figured I’d ask in case someone knows something I don’t, thanks.

    Just spoke to a local guy yesterday that does fluid film and wool wax. He does wool wax on his vehicle but most he said he does is fluid film because of being a little cheaper. But his opinion using both he thinks the wool wax is much better and last longer. I’m probably having him do wool wax on my 23 4runner Pro. He also removes the wheels where most places don’t. He is very thorough.

    You'd be fine. I used FF on our daily drivers 2 years ago, and last year I switched to 'Blaster Surface Shield. All are lanolin based so it's fine. Surface shield has seemed to hold it quite well except in high contact areas (where water gets splashed on suspension parts), but that's pretty expected for any of these products.

    That said, I go to a Line-X facility and have Krown applied on my Tundra. Next month I'll be going for my 5th application and I couldn't be happier with how it's holding up.
