I'm not sure what Liquid Film is, but if it is similar to Fluid Film
, I can offer these comments.
I have been using Fluid Film to protect my steel winter rims from rusting. It seems to provide very good protection to anything it is sprayed on. My observations also show that it does creep short distances.
If you plan on using the aerosol version, the problem is getting the Fluid Film into hidden areas like door interiors, hood and trunk braces, and the box beams found in uni-body vehicles. Krown (and others) are applied as a mist/fog, all you need to do is get the application wand into the door cavity, and the fog makes sure every inch of the cavity is coated. I think the Fluid Film would only coat a few inches around the opening.
On the other hand, if you purchased the pails of Fluid Film, I have seen people build their own application system using an air compressor and steel brake lines used as an extension wand.
Since the aerosol can of Fluid Film cost $15 CDN, I think it is still more economical to spend $120 at Krown to get the whole vehicle covered properly.
