The guy who I first hired to do the body work on my car (though I eventually ended up with someone else) swore by this stuff called Fluid Film, and he bought a gallon of it that he planned to use on my car.  He called it "undercoating", but after researching it's actually a lanolin-based rust preventative. I'm not sure I'd want to spray the entire underside of a car with it (not a show car anyway) as I hear it stays a bit sticky, though from reviews I read it works very well at coating surfaces against rust and people swear by it for farm equipment, snow plows, etc..

The kit he bought me included a small spray can of the stuff, and I find it works well to spray on unpainted nuts and bolts to keep them natural looking. I suppose WD-40 would do the same thing, but I believe this is more durable, and it sure smells better.

Just wondering if anyone is using this stuff and what sort of uses you've found for it on your AMC.

Wonderful stuff, it creeps and looks for voids to fill.  I find the smell is pleasant as well.

Lanolin has been around for a very long time. It is quite popular in Australia and New Zealand as we have more sheep than people. I use it anywhere you'd usually use a spray lubricant. Great for protecting against rust, lubricating wire rope, just about anything. I also agree that it smells good. It is also better for the environment if you use it in a marine application.
