Default Fluid Film Vs. Woody's....

Ok so I'm fairly convinced it's the same stuff at a fraction of the cost. Am I alone in this?

Only thing I haven't tried using it for is actually cleaning metal in the exact manner as you would with Woody's.. Spray it on, allow it to sit overnight and then wipe metal down.

Anyone tried to replace Woody's with it?? Even the smell reminds me of Woody's...

Not Fluid Film. A very good friend that has been in the marine business for a number of years and has his own offshore boat uses Sharkhide. Showed us the results and we just received ours. As soon as the weather breaks our boat will get a cleaning... Web site shows some amazing results as well.

I've used FF and it works great, no experience with Woody's so I can't compare. FF is big in the PWC community. When I had one I would just spray the entire inside compartment and that is it, only had to do it like once a year.

I use FF on my decks just as I did the 30+ dollar bottle of Woody. No difference in my opinion. Spray the engine, Wipe all metal on boat, wiring, on a brush in the wash bucket for my reels, Boat trailer, undercarriage of my truck.

Been using FF for years. It's the same as WW. Some say the UV protection is not the same. I say spray it on, wash it off and don't worry about it. It's the same stuff.

Same as woodys for the most part, I've been using it as an undercoating for my Excursion with great results, stays on much longer than expected

I buy it by the gallon at the local John Deere dealer. Works great on your trucks door hinges too.

Fluid film is recommended by Oasis to protect the brushes and commutator on their high-volume high-pressure DC air compressor that I installed on my boat.

This product has been working well to keep these parts looking like new.

Up here in Ohio I cover the undersides of every vehicle I own with FF.

I buy it in bulk 5 gallon pails & apply it with a air powered undercoating gun.

I made up my own flexible extension with a 360* spray tip to snake into box frame rails & body panels.

The stuff really works. Every season I give our vehicles a good look over & respray any spots that may need touched up.

I get mine here: http://www.eastwood.com/fluid-film-rust-proteciton.html

Great price on 5's & a 10% off new customer code & you can get 5 gallons for a little over $150 shipped.

They have smaller sizes & fizz cans as well.
