I have no apparent rust and it seems to work great so I'm not sure going to something "better" is worth it. The fluid film does get coated in small rocks and dirt by the spring time. Works well enough for me.
How many gallons is your compressor tank?

I don't have an air compresson, but for a small-ish job like this i'm thinking a manual or electric sprayer, like a garden sprayer.

Did anybody use one ? I'm thinking fluid film or CRC might clog the sprayer.

I think it's worth a try.

Now I did more research and it seems CRC 06026 Heavy Duty Corrosion Inhibitor could be a better product, at least it's a one time deal, to my understanding.

I am trying to avoid having to fluid film every year ....

So how do I spray CRC over fluid fild now ? Is it possible ? Last I checked underneath, it's all a bit oily but not too bad.

I don't have a lift and fluid film was a pain to apply, if CRC can be applied one time (2 coats and giving it 12 hours for each coat to cure) I would totally go for that.

Seattle area is not really bad for rust but I still want to overcoat my 4runner.

Any thoughts appreciated.

Yes, from the Project Farm test, the CRC HD is better. It’s also important to spray inside the frame using a 360 degree hose attachment. FYI, Fluid film will come off with a pressure washer. Fluid Film now has the black version which is better than their original. If available in your area, just go to an authorized NH Oil undercoating shop and do annual touch ups. If a shop, that does NH Oil or Fluid Film Black is available, remove the spare and skidplates and have your undercarriage steam cleaned before getting the oil based product installed. You can spray the skidplate yourself with CRC after you get home. FYI, oil based products will stay a bit wet/moist but that’s what makes them a better rust inhibitor.

I'm sure whichever one you choose will do the job great. I got FF done professionally this year to get the first coat done right with a sprayer, inside the frame with the 360 nozzle, etc. I will try myself this year and see how bad it is just using the cans. Regardless, will get it done every year. They say to drive down a dirt road after you get it done to build up that layer.

Only downside I've seen to FF is the smell for the first few drives and also after driving in the rain the first couple times the tailgate had a nice layer of FF on it.

Ok the garden spray version is definitely nort going to cut it. Pressure is way to low and it only last a few seconds, after which you have to pump again. Looks like I need a pretty good compresson if I want to go this route.


Srt4runner, what compressor do you use ?

Plan B is still the spray cans ...
