|Over rust..the spray roofing tar seems to be the best. Really high solvent..the rubberized stuff really bites in..it does need to be done twice though. Rust Killer primer..2 coats followed by rubberized rocker guard has stood up really well! over 2 years. Rubberized rocker guard WITHOUT Primer=just useless after several months. APPEARS to go on ok at first. Rust Killer primer pretty much ONLY works under rubberized rocker guard.
Rusty metal..spray it with PB blaster. Do not even imagine how badly it will rust if not cleaned off! PB blaster followed by Seafoam to clean it off after a few days then followed by Honey Goo is a very,very good combo. Honey Goo over rust..not so good. Seafoam over rust=not very good.
The hinge/pin springgy thing on my rear window wiper that forces the wiper against the glass. I don't believe there is ANYTHING I HAVEN'T TRIED!! Spray it with PB..give it a few days..spray it with Seafoam..then spray it with regular grease that comes in an aerosol can. So far so good.
I have been testing the newer WD40 Gel..not for long enough for any reports.
About 1 1/2 yrs ago I had basically a seized up caliper piston AND the slider pins in the bracket. Lots of pad life left. Not grabbing or dragging. Figuring it was just a matter of time. Never did act up. Pads wore out actually fairly even?? Time to change the pads along with the caliper and bracket. 1 1/2 yrs ago at the time I doused everything with PB..the other day I set about the change all of it..for a laugh I stuffed the pads in and got my pad spreader. WOW! Might have taken 1 1/2 yrs but the caliper piston just pushed back in and so did the bracket Sprayed all of it with WD Gel and put it back together. Saved me like $174 plus tax for that caliper ouch. We'll see.
