Question Under carriage sealer using transmission fluid

Has anyone done this and does it work? It is suppose to be a way to battle rust. What should be avoided when spraying?

Would be a big attraction for dirt and etc. to stick to....spray undercoating might be a better choice..

Been sitt'n here in desert for 4 months......dust collects to EVERYTHING, every day. That's why some use dry lube, in spray can form, as it won't add to problem.....rattle can paint is also a choice..

I used canned bed liner on the under belly/frame of my 59 edsel I'm restoring. its water resistant and tougher than undercoating.

why would you use transmission fluid instead of a anti rust spray?

Years ago, service stations would spray leaf spring s and steering, suspension, with something called "Rubber Lube". Don't know what that was made of. Would that work..

I have used POR-15 in the past on a street rod frame. It holds up great but I don't know if it can be sprayed I brushed it on.

Product can be sprayed easier to spray if thin down with vegetable oil fluid film does sell a sprayer to spray without diluting

rubber lube was a silicon spray to stop sqeeks. you don't want to spray any oil on it because then you would have to power wash or steam clean to put any other product on it in the future.

I have used Rustoleum rubberized undercoating and Rustoleum bed liner coating. Both come in spray cans and were purchased at Walmart. These cans spray a decent pattern and quite far to get up into hard to get areas. Shake the cans well and they will empty to the last drop.

Things to avoid: exhaust system; heat shields; brakes; steering joints; drive shaft; generator; yourself.

Some toy and model train people use automatic transmission fluid on their train tracks. It is used instead of cleaning. The cleaning is done to allow better electrical contact between engines and the track. A little trans fluid wiped on the track in two or three places gets spread around by the train car wheels. That aids electrical conductivity so one can play instead of cleaning.

Yes is a good way and better if you mixt IT WITH 20 % liquid tar . You can Also work WITH USED oil transmission , IT smelt Nothing . Would be better if dust and sand stick on IT because it will MAKE an more heavy layer protection . But THE BEST for me IS FLUID FILM PRODUCT. Go on internet and read about IT .

Try this stuff. Works great, does not attract dust.
