    I just shot mine with Fluid Film for the same reasons.

    If you live in the salt belt, you must do this! It makes a huge difference.

    Fluid Film contains Phosphoric acid that converts existing rust to Iron Phos effectively stopping it from growing. This is temporary but with annual application it will slow it down to a non-issue.

    I'm glad this topic strayed back onto corrosion protection. I am looking to use B'laster Surface Shield. I've read some reviews that the nozzle on their aerosol cans leave a lot to be desired. I'm thinking its better just to get a bulk 1-gal. pail of B'laster 128-SS and spray it on myself. The only recommendation B'laster makes regarding undercoat sprayers is that you should get one that will spray a lanolin-based undercoating with a viscosity of 1500cps. Um, riiiiiiigggghhhhttt. Any one have any experience they can share regarding undercoat sprayers that will spray a lanolin-based undercoating with a viscosity of 1500cps??? Anyone?? Anyone?? Bueller?? Bueller?? :D

    I read up a little on this because I wanted to buy Fluid Film in the gallon size. It is really thick stuff!
    I bought a gun from WoolWax. It was pricey but the reviews of the less expensive guns were very mixed. Many of them said that you had to thin the product to spray well.
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0070WTGZG?ie=UTF8
    My experience with the gun has been great. It is much cleaner than the aerosol cans because it does not create as much mist in the air. Not to mention cheaper.

    Thank you! ...and it comes with the wands as well. What size compressor are you using with it?

    My compressor is capable of 6.5CFM at 100psi. It has no trouble keeping up with this. I spray at 65psi.

    All of the supplies finally arrived for the big head unit upgrade! Using a combo of crutchfield, wm, Amzn and bb I think I did pretty well price-wise. For my '17 non-jbl, I got:
    • Maestro ADS-RR (module for steering wheel controls)
    • HRN-HRR-TO2 (main wire harness)
    • ACC-HU-ALP1 (Alpine-specific harness adapter)
    • Dasaita Dash Kit (only one with metal brackets)
    • Metra 40-LX11 (fm/am antenna adapter)
    • Metra AZ-TOYUSB (adapter to use factory usb port)
    • Metra AX-TRIG1 (e-brake bypass for settings/video)
    • Batige HDMI/USB port (will replace cig lighter, attach to hdmi on hu)
    • Natika front camera (mostly for parking)
    • Alpine KCX-CAM1 (adapter to use non-alpine front camera)
    • SUMI-GT21 (adapter to retain factory gps antenna)
    I think I'm also going to get a dash cam, still deciding which one. I like the idea of the Alpine dash cam being fully integrated but it may be too $$ for me.

    I made the part allocation more complicated than it needed to be, but I tend to overthink things, searching for best prices, going back and forth on what I need vs want etc. Finally feel confident enough to start with flashing the Maestro and getting it all wired and ready. Super excited!:bananadance:

    It’s been a while since I posted. The truck finally got some love. Added
    New wheels and shocks. Today it got a much needed detail. IMG_5289.jpg IMG_5288.jpgIMG_5290.jpg IMG_5287.jpg IMG_5294.jpg IMG_5291.jpgIMG_5293.jpg

    Man, that is a sharp looking 2015! What shocks did you go with, why and if adjustable, how are they configured?

    I wish you wouldn't felt cute. Now I regret not getting that gray Pro a few years ago instead of my white SR5.

    I've never really been a fan of red trucks (cars in general); but that deep dark red on your rig is :benchpress:

    LOL. Believe it or not, Army Green was always my first choice and Black was initially my second choice. It was slim Pickens in the middle of 2020 but I’m thankful my wife pushed me to get the MGM as soon as I got the call it was in the pipeline. The color grew on me and I love it. Very versatile color.

    Thanks for the compliment. I went with OME 5.1BPS. Best decision I made for this truck. I had the Bilsteins 5100s on prior. They were ok, but still the ride was rough. The OME’s are superb, if you want to adjust the shocks, I can do it on the ground. I have them currently set at I would call a mid setting. I still have the ability to raise the truck up some more. But this is already too high for my wife….lol.

    Nice setup for sure. I’ve heard that about the Bilsteins before. I’m looking to go with Eibachs sometime soon. Black Friday maybe…?

    I use this. It's amazing

    Trick is to heat the product to roughly 120° & shoot it around 70 psi. Made sure the set screw is set almost all the way out. Until I figured those things out, I couldn't use the 360 wand
