Has anyone used J P Weigle's frame saver? I am planning on using it on a 1988 Miyata MTB. If you have used it, please share your experience and any tips for applying the stuff.

Good thing to protect and preserve the Miyata! 1st because it is a great ride of course and 2nd because to inform future generations on how a proper bike has to be built.

Anyway, I did a lot with rust prevention. I not only treated my classic Saab, but also all my steel bikes with Mike Sander and/or Fluid Film.

Mike Sander is a bit more hassle to work with. It is grease that needs to be heated to 100°c, you need a compressor and professional spraygun BUT your bike will be save for at least the upcoming centuries.

FluidFilm AS-R is very easy to work with. It is a thick oily substance that comes in an Aerosol can and various nozzles are included or available. Still a great method.

I never used JP Weigle, because it is not available overhere.
