unsnap the plastic panel from the rear tailgate door and make sure it isn't rusting from the inside out. also the area above the spare tire. lots of great tips here.

True - glad I don't have any of it...that's why folks use Woolwax or Fluid Film.

Corrosion free formula 3000 beats both of those in tests, 0 drip and 0 smell. Fluid film smells like an animal died in your vehicle for 2 weeks, nasty.

lol, i'll offer the opposite opinion for other readers as someone that uses fluid film. it has an odor for a few days tops, doesn't smell inside the car at any point unless you were opening doors while spraying inside a garage (or maybe you were spraying inside door frames?). i just resprayed parts of my frame yesterday and it already has next to no odor. also, i'm pretty sure you've never smelled a dead animal before or you've forgotten what it smells like because that is actually nasty. considering there is a death freezer at work (~20' from my desk) and i've done my fair share of necropsy work i feel pretty well versed in what a dead animal smells like. fluid film is not even remotely close to the smell of death.

Woolwax has hardly any odor at all. Quite thick - thicker than fluid film so does not drip on application. The overspray does need to be managed - I put down red rosin paper on the garage floor and moved cardboard panels around the truck. Cleanup was not bad but plan on doing it outside on the driveway with the red rosin paper next year. I am eager to see how much stays on the undercarriage after the winter.

I fluid filmed my other car last winter, yes all inside the bottoms of the doors and rear gate, door jams, anywhere salt attacks. It stunk so bad I'd rather have not applied it at all and it was there for 2 weeks.
