    Has anyone heard/used ACF50?? It was designed for the aircraft industry initially and its being promoted by motorcycle companies as providing winter protection which repells moisture particles, avoids corrosion and forms a protective layer against salt. Never mind hubby using this on his bikes, what about my camper? Has anyone used it? Recommend it? It's quite expensive but as no winter storage for my commer, any prevention is good. Keen to hear thoughts and feedback?[:X]

    Haven't used it myself but just did a quick Google and it looks like good stuff, you would need an awful lot to do under a Commer though and it only lasts 12 - 18 months:I If your fella's already got some it would be a good idea to nick it and apply it around the dizzy and HT leads to keep moisture out;)

    I thought maybe paintwork and chrome exterior protection also would be good? Under the peak and to ward off corrosion? Under chassis would be good long term.

    Don't know about the above spray but there's an interesting tip on the Mechanical page here:-

    "Crank Case pressure & Rusty chasis

    4 u green freeks this mite not sound like a good idea but if ure engine is breathing heavy and u dont mind then root the crank case breather into the chassis and oil the inside as u drive ??? no more crank case presure and less rust in your chassis [dozer]"

    Betterer than new ...

    Under the peak and behind the bumpers yes but not sure about the paintwork. You could try it maybe on the valance under the bumper to see what it's like.

    We use it at work on fork lift trucks in arduous conditions, freezer stores and brine (salty) environments and find it to be very good indeed, its a super fluid, stays at a light viscosity and 'heals' should it get wiped off a small area. In short WONDER STUFF !
