I'd like to hear everyones thought on what products they might use or what thier routines are to prevent rust on chromoly. Typically after I take my truck out for a run I pressure wash it and then wipe the whole thing down with a silicone spray. It seems to work ok but I thought someone out there might have come across something that works better.

We just began selling a product at work called Fluid Film and it is supposed to prevent rust fairly well. WD-40 also works ok but it attracks dirt after the fact. Try calling F&L race fuel , I've heard they also sell some rust prevenitives.

fluid film , corrosion X and wd40 all work well but attract a lot of dirt. silicone spray is proly the best next to powercoating and painting. you could always get it chromed :)

WD40 works real good and its cheaper than silicone spray, i would shell out the money and paint it or even better powdercoat it cause other wise you lose your battle against the rust....
