    As I've had man flu for a few days I've got bored
    20180106_130723_1515245127501_1.JPG
    So I've decided after seeing some stuff on youtube to have a go at an experiment to see how the various potions I have last. Now this isn't being done on the bike just being left outside to the elements. I've driven 7 nails onto a strip of wood then cleaned each one with thinners. The 1st 1 on the extreme left is the control which has nothing on it then left to right acf50, Double TT, FS365, GT85, Waxoil and finally WD40. The acf50 I put on with the applicator then wiped the excess off with a mf cloth. All the others were aerosols or sprays and had a good soaking. I'll take some photos as the corrosion sets in at regular intervals and post the results Place your bets.....

    Ade, stick some dashboard silicone shine in for good measure and see how that performs. It might surprise you

    I'd guess waxoil first followed by acf50

    To accelerate things a bit you might try a spraying once a week with a solution of salt water.

    I’ve looked at the photograph every single day from the off, and I don’t see any change! Must be good stuff?
