Default Fluid film rust prevention long term

So after 6 years fluid film has managed to keep almost all the rust off the bottom of my vehicle. Most cars this age are covered with rust in Michigan and only a few years away from rust showing on the body. Protect your ride friends!

Cool video, I swear by fluid film for my daily driver, fleet of equipment and touch ups on my fun cars. I go through a 12 pack of cans every month.

I recently filled my bugeye's underbody with 3M Cavity Wax+, but won't have a good idea how well it holds up until after winter. Seems much more sticky and wax-like than Fluid Film I've used in the past, which seems to stay "wet" in perpetuity.

I know it will cost more for the manufacturer, but I think every vehicle needs to have the underside (to include the wheel wells) with additional layer of tough paint, like a bed-liner material to thwart under-body rust.

Fluid film is great stuff and only a bit messy right after application.

I should probably get some for my daily as ODOT (ohio) loves their salt.

Any idea if this ends up leaving any residue when its particularly hot out? I'm wondering if I'd end up getting any drips or runoff on my driveway where the car is usually parked.

It's liquidy when sprayed, but becomes tacky after it's laid out. It washes away with water in any case
