I have a guy who is a Fluid Film distributor - I'll check with him for bulk pricing, I'm sure he can do better than NAPA...

I'll have him price out a 5 gallon pail we can split up :wink: From what I read for external we can use my HVLP spray guns that I use for duracoat gun finishes...  getting something that can snake inside the frame could be an expensive issue for bulk.  I have a snake that works with the aerosol spray cans, but that gets expensive quick...

I'm in to learn how to do it with a sprayer. I picked up the spray can extension and some cans a few weeks ago because I figured that would get it done this year but I want to learn how to use the bulk product.

Another option is a pump up insecticide sprayer with a home made 360 degree nozzle hose...  I bet I could modify my spray can fogging hose to work  :wink:  Either way - for us to buy bulk and have a spraying party would be cost effective

I love it when a plan comes together! I'll source the bulk 5 gallon pails from my Fluid Film distributor and we can discuss the delivery methods - Although I'm an air compressor / HVLP paint gun guy, I like the pump up sprayer option (I personally have a pump up pesticide sprayer I added a valve stem to so I could charge it with compressed air  :mrgreen:

I already ordered the kit. How much does one need to do a whole truck though? I only bought 1 gallon...

Based on what I’ve heard, a gallon should be plenty.

Drive it till it rots and put all the $$$$ you would have spent into a “new frame by Tom” fund for when it gets too far gone to use. That’s what I’m doing with my LJ

I did my truck with NHoil about a month ago.  The 5 gal kit includes a spray gun and flexible tube for getting up into the body for $285.  After spraying for about 2.5 hrs I used about 1.5 gallons.  It was easy to apply and wasn't as messy as I thought it would be.  There was only a couple of drips on the floor the next day.  You are supposed to apply it annually so buying 5 gal. is the best deal.

Here is the starter kit I bought last year, has all the parts you need to get the job done. I used about a half a gallon on the Jeep, including in side the frame rails and any open holes under the jeep got the spray wand pulled through it. Only thing not sprayed was the brake rotors and calipers and the exhaust system.

That's a pretty thorough kit!  How did you like the 24" hose for doing inside the frame?  Does it work off the gun or separate aerosol can?

There's a 360 degree wand that connects to the spray gun and a smaller diameter 360 degree wand that goes on a spray can.

I used the gun wand and it works well you insert it into one of the frame holes and pull the trigger and slowly pull it out and the inside of the rail gets coated 360 degrees.

There's enough holes in the rails that you can spray from the front of the jeep to back no problem.

And don't forget the cross members, any body panel openings, the under floor pan, driveshaft's, axles, suspension and springs sway bars, brake and fuel lines and basically anything and everything in site.

And with the hood open on my JK I sprayed inside the front fenders from the top too.

Thanks for the feedback!  I have the 360 degree wand that attaches to the spray cans, I'll try the rattle cans this winter and maybe invest in the real deal next season...

That's my plan too. This year I did it with the rattle cans with the 360 wand attached for the inside of the frame. Used 3 cans to do the inside and another 3 on the outside and areas like wheel wells. Def not the most cost effective method compared to investing in a reusable system.
I drilled an extra set of holes near the rear control arm mounts too and flushed it well a couple of days before. That was just before they started throwing stuff on the road.
I feel like the interior of the frame was done pretty well but I didn't cover the rest of the underside as well as I would have liked.
I have a few more cans hanging around and next week I'll be under there for an oil change so I'll probably work on it a little more then.

My brother told me today he can get 5 gallons from work for $140. Could potentially get some for a few people if theres any interest still or someone wants to stock up for next season.
