    Hi all
    I had a Tundra - the first one in Chicago! - but was not informed about the magic of Woolwax/Fluid Film until after my purchase of my 4runner. (Had to part with the tundra due to significant rust damage to undercarriage). Application of ww/ff was my first “mod” lol. This truck is kinda my retirement gift as I leave one career and go on to another and I want to keep this baby in prime condition as long as I can, despite the wet, salty and varied temps of Chicago!

    Hello.
    I did it myself! Ww and Ff was maybe $70 bucks + a roller, two ramps and face shied from harbor freight totaling maybe $75? I have plenty left over and won’t need to buy any of those items for future touch ups!
