I've always used Armor-all as a corrosion fighter on my bikes. I just spray it everywhere. It keeps the bike clean and non-rusting. The only problem is that I'm all the time running out to get another quart. The cost is not exactly a killer, it's mostly the need to go to the store. But if I could get costs down, too, that'd be good. So yesterday I tried something new. I mixed a couple of ounces of liquid auto wax (the green stuff) with an equal amount of paint thinner in a small spray bottle. My hope was that the paint thinner would evaporate leaving a thin coating of wax behind. It seems to have worked; my test pieces were a piece of iron and a 2 x 4. In both cases, checking this morning, they seem dry with a light green haze. I might try rubbing alcohol as the dispersant next. Of course, they market spray-on wax, but it's not all that cheap. And this concoction might not be a lot less expensive than Armor-all. But if it leaves a "hard shell finish" particularly in, say, cable sheath ends and the bottom of chain stays and places like that it'll be worth it. It might be useful for making any jacket or gloves, etc., water resistant. Though if it doesn't breathe, then it'll still be warm. But your choices of what to wear have just expanded a great deal. I'll come back if any further observations seem worth reporting.
