Moving parts on your car or truck that need lubrication

Cars and trucks break, it is just what they do. In more cases than not, you do not know that you need to fix your car until it breaks. Some of these fixes can seem like the smallest thing, that is until you get the bill. Not all of us are mechanics, but these simple lubrication tips will help your moving parts on your car or truck last longer and perform smoother.

10 Minutes | 5 Steps

Step 1: Battery Terminals

Problem: Corrosion causing your car not to start

If your battery terminals become too rusty, it can prevent the battery’s power from following between the cables. In some cases, corrosion can be so severe that replacing the battery, terminals, and cables is necessary; a costly solution.

Prevention: Spraying Boeshield T-9 on your terminals

In order to prevent rust and corrosion, it is important to spray your terminals with Boeshield T-9. This will protect for longer than other brands and prevent costly fixes down the road.

Step 2: Hood Latches

Problem: Hood will not open

If you have run into this problem, you know how frustrating it truly is. Overtime, hood latches can seize up from corrosion, this is extremely cumbersome when trying to get underneath to fix a different problem. Getting it to finally open up can be a grueling process that can be prevented.

Prevention: Spray T-9 on your hood latches and hinges (while your at it)

To keep your latch and hinges from seizing due to corrosion, hit them with a spray of T-9. Not only will this prevent rust from forming, it will lubricate the mechanisms; insuring it operates smoothly.

Step 3: Door Hardware

Problem: Squeaky Door Hinges

There is nothing more annoying in the world than a squeaky door hinge, well maybe I am exaggerating a little bit. Nonetheless, it is an unwelcome sound and something we want to avoid, especially on date night!

Prevention: Apply T-9 on all of your door hardware

A quick spray of T-9 on you door hinges will work wonders and eliminate that pesky squeak.

Step 4: Trunk Hinges

Problem: Truck will not open

This is debatably worse than your hood not opening. Many people use their trunks everyday, not being able to get into them is a big problem. This issue is caused by dirt/road grit, cold weather, or a complete failure of the lock cylinder.

Prevention: Coating trunk lids and Hinges with T-9

In the scenario that your lock cylinder has failed, chances are you are going to need a mechanic. This is another costly and highly preventable fix, spray T-9 on your trunk hinges and lock mechanism to ensure it opens every time.

Step 5: Sunroof Tracks

Problem: Noisy Sunroof

Dirt along with road debris will buildup on your sunroof tracks and cause unwanted noisiness along with other problems. Sunroof repairs are never cheap and prevention is easy.

Prevention: You guessed it, T-9

Make sure to begin by cleaning off your sunroof tracks using a degreaser, such as Simple Green. Next, lubricate the inner lip of the sliding rails to maintain a smoothly gliding sunroof. This is done by using a rag or paper towel with T-9 soaked into it and applying along the tracks.

Boeshield T-9 can also be used on your car or truck for:

  • Engine Compartments
  • Fender Wells
  • All Inner Sheet Metal
  • Undercarriages
  • Power Antennas
  • Engine Rust
  • Electrical Circuits
  • Aluminum Rims, Uncoated
  • Anywhere else on your vehicle that needs protection/lubrication!

How to Protect your Boat from Corrosion

Living in the enemy

As we all know, water is the main catalyst for corrosion. Now, unless you’re some sort of weirdo, I am assuming that most of you use your boat in the water. Fresh water alone is bad enough, but once you incorporate saltwater; you can find yourself in a world of hurt. That being said, it is of the utmost importance to practice corrosion prevention. You do not want to be the guy with the rustiest boat in the marina, trust me.

Corrosion protection:

  1. After each use: clean with freshwater + a mild detergent (dish soap works fine) and ensure that metal areas are dry.
  2. Invest in a good cover to protect from the elements.
  3. Perform routine inspections in areas that are prone to corrosion.
  4. Find yourself a quality corrosion inhibitor, we recommend Boeshield T-9 .

Why Boeshield T-9:

Unlike other corrosion inhibitors, Boeshield T-9 cleans, lubricates and protects. Our high performance formula does it all. T-9 can be used to protect from corrosion on inboard and outboard engines, electronics, deck wiring, hardware, and more:

Above deck:

We recommend applying a light film on applications above deck. This entails spraying the T-9 and wiping off the excess. Once the solvent evaporates, it will leave a waxy film that will protect for 2-3 months in salt water.

Below Deck:

To protect from corrosion below deck, we recommend simply spraying it on and letting it dry. This is a thicker application and therefore will protect longer; roughly 6 months in salt water areas.

Best Way to Remove and Prevent Table Saw Rust

Removing the Rust:

The best way to begin ridding yourself from the red menace we call rust is to break out your sander. Begin sanding as much rust off of the heavily oxidized service as possible, before applying Boeshield Rust Free. Spray Rust Free onto the rusted area and being to wipe off the excess rust with a paper towel, you can also use a scotchbrite pad on harder to clean areas.

Note: Ensure that you have wiped off the access Rust Free to preventing etching.

Rust Prevention:

After you have removed all of the rust from your table saw, it is pertinent to apply a protectant right away. Leaving your exposed metal without a protectant can cause “flash-rusting” within a couple days in high humidity areas. To prevent this, apply Boeshield T9 immediately after cleaning your table saw and rub in with a paper towel.

Why T9?

It works, and it is proven. Better Homes and Garden: Wood performed a test comparing 14 rust cleaners & protectants on cast iron surfaces. Using their humidity simulator, Boeshield T9 was the only protectant that kept the surface rust free during the 24 hour test. Boeshield T9 is the only option to keep your table saw rust free.
