Something I came upon it's called ACF-50 Anti Corrosion Formula. As far as I can tell it's not readily available in an auto store but can be ordered online. It's a non greasy hydrophobic film on a metal surface neutralizing existing corrosion and road salt removing and repelling moisture, developed for the airline industry. Sounds like a winner, anyone here using it?

One more.  So far it seems hard to find out where to buy it. They do push large volumes though for shops.

Seems to be used on aircraft all around the world.

FROM ANOTHER SITE


I used ACF50 for many years on aircraft used in the Caribbean. The salt air of SE Florida and the Bahamas was deadly to airplanes. ACF50 stopped the corrosion. It worked well.

It works it's way into joints, seams and fasteners to interrupt the electrical aspect of galvanic corrosion. Especially those between steel and aluminum or magnesium, and even on surfaces.

I would clean everyplace you can get to, touch-up any frame paint that is flaked or chaffed with a conversion type primer, then black enamel. Use the aerosol ACF50 to "fog" the underbelly area behind the bottom panel.

AND, very important!!......Let it drip for 24 hours, and wipe the dribbles and whatnot to keep it off the tires!!!
It is slippery on rubber.

That's a fair price with free shipping to boot.
