    I just wanted to know if any of ya'll had any dealings with Gibbs Brand "does everything" lubricant. Being the prudent shopper that I am, I just bought a case of spray cans of this stuff! I then realized that I should've consulted with other shoppers (like ya'll) and asked their opinions about their results with this stuff. It claims to stop rust, lube, and leave no "oily residue", etc. Is this some kind of secret fluid? I would think that if it does all that is claimed, WD-40 would be out of business.

    Twice?! Is that all? I must be slipping into mainstream!

    The WD in WD40 stands for water displacement.

    So, if I understand it correctly, it will get into seams and crevices and push any water out of it if there is any.

    What nobody has been able to explain to me, is how you get rid of that fluid ( out of the seams & crevices ) when its time to paint the car.


    And even if that is totally harmless, like Gibbs is claimed to be, you know the painter will try to blame it if something goes wrong...


    I'd rather have nothing on my car at all and scuff it up every 2 or 3 years.
    But I live in Arizona, weather here is dry and hot.
    If I was somewhere else it'd be a different story...
