[xj] RustCheck application - very technical process :)

Help, Dr. Andrachuk! I’ve applied my first application of
Rust Check (sort of like adding Cherry Coke). I like the
product, but surely you have some pointers on an improved
application technique that will allow me to get more of the
product to seep into the seals and less to end up on the
window, the walls, the mirrors, my glasses, etc. The little
straw thing just blows itself right out of the sprayer
whenever it wants. So… I need further training as I recall
you mentioning that you put a little bead of it on regularly -
a little bead comes only from the hands of a highly skilled
technician!–

I am not Gregory Andrachuck, but I use rust check all the time, and I
think you may have a faulty little straw thing.On 22 February 2010 17:47, kim stirling knstirling@aol.com wrote:

Kim:
The weakest part - the only weak part of the Rust Check system is that
small nozzle; Unless tightly fitted (before there is any of the
super-lubricating RC on the nozzle!) it can come shooting out.
The technique is one you develop with use: for the bead of RC at the
windscreen rubber put the red nozzle tube right ON the body/rubber seam and
gently and partially press the nozzle button; you only want a very small
amount. Move the nozzle along the seam so that you have a continuous bead.
Within 24 hours this RC will have flowed all the way into and down the
channel and be exiting from the bottom corners. You’ll want another bead at
the bottom edge - this time between the stainless and the rubber so that it
flows over and under the rubber into the channel. You can do this as often
as you like; any excess will flow out and be harmless to rubber and paint.
You do not want it on the glass though so clean it immediately.

In reply to a message from Dr. Gregory Andrachuk sent Tue 23 Feb 2010:

OK, then, unbelievable but it does appear to be the arrow and
not the Indian :slight_smile: I’ll keep working on this challenge since
my car really needs the protection. I’m just glad I’m not
clever enough to have to worry about EFI’s, and oxygen
sensors, and bleeding brakes! Kim–
