    I completely agree with you on this and maybe I came across wrong with my findings. You are right about the fact that if they stay wet they will come off. Part of what the stage of testing I am in now is after they have been not only exposed to the elements (and salt test), testing how well they protect after exposure to the elements, being in the dirt and then being cleaned. The LPS3 and ACF-50 are great products, but when talking under coating, they would not hold up. They have their uses, but as an undercoating, they would not hold up at all. I also believe that they would attract more road grime than the AMSOIL as well. So far in the current test, the AMSOIL has only faltered where it was actually soaked in salt water, while the rust has spread to other areas of the other test pieces where the salt water shouldn't have effected them.

    I had not even considered Plasti Dip, I will have to call them and discuss that with them. But in considering Pasti Dip, we may be making the move to comparing something closer to actual paint than a metal protector.


    However, the thing to remember is what we are testing for, use as an under coating. I personally would not use either the LPS3 OR the ACF-50 as undercoating, they just have not performed well for that use. I will have more pics and further explanation soon.

    I'm ordering the amsoil for my truck undercoating very soon.

    For firearms, consider trying the Birchwood Casey Barricade.

    You have mail Scott. For the firearms, AMSOIL also makes another metal protector that is great for guns.

    As quoted from their website:
    I also have found that this protector would be the better choice between the two for protecting the electrical system, harnesses, etc under the hood and in the under carriage. It may also be the better choice for shocks, although I have not tested that theory as yet.

    I did not realize the amsoil dried! so now in conjunction with my regular spray on bed type liner undercoating I will have to put on amsoil in the spots the regular undercoating don't go. I would still recommend a regular undercoat along with the amsoil for the best protection.

    by the way how often should one spray on the amsoil

    What product would you consider for a "regular under coating?" Does anyone have any experience with Valugard?
