[TR] penetrating oil

I buy Fluid Film at the local John Deere dealer.  I use it every fall all over the chassis of the Suburban.  Seems that GM can find good paint for the body but not for the frame.  Right next to a perfect underbody is a frame with no paint on it at all.

I have never tried Fluid Film for bolt-and-nut removal.  PB Blaster has worked fine for me.
