    I stumbled across this thread tonight to see if anyone had the a similar idea as me as just completed the same process this weekend on my 2010 mustang and my wife's 2011 Fiesta. I have to say Crazy Pete you sure have some thick skin. He is also not the only person in New England to perform this rust prevention method, it is quite a common occurrence in this area. Albeit it is becoming less and less frequent to see. My father has also performed the same process on his vehicles as well over the years with very good luck.

    These are the 2nd and third cars to receive the coating in my fleet, I did the same to my 97 ranger 3 years ago after my rear shackles rotted out. Basically sealed everything in place and locked out the rust.

    My coats were no where near as thick as CrazyPete's and I kept it far away from any of the heat sources and made sure I used a high temp grease.

    Rock on Pete!

    LOL....final outcome. Sounds so ominous.

    The grease stayed put for a looooooong time, eventually becoming streamlined (extra mpg!) and thicker as is collected dust. I had many interesting conversations with mechanics in the meantime, some who unwisely ignored my warnings to be wary of the underside of this ford.

    Eventually the mods in my sig proved too much and the low teens milage combined with the rock hard springs and the ear ringing delicious sound prompted me to move along autowise. I was shocked to learn that there is not much market for overmodified cars covered in grease. Eventually, the car and all of its pristinely preserved parts found a good home at Menard's in NH. I donated the car back to the parts guru who helped me for so many years to find all the parts I needed.

    It was a great journey.

    Somewhere there's a Mustang shell rotted to hell and back but i'll be damned if the floor pan doesn't look brand new (underneath an inch of unholy disgusting ****).

    Well....the cool part is, if I ever want to buy the car back....I'll know the frame will be in excellent condition (as long as he stores it belly-up that is)
