Non aerosol ACF50

Hi,

Just looking to restock my ACF50, purchasing the aerosol version to the Isle of Man is always a pain, as online resellers don't like sending it due to flights etc.  I was wondering how good the non-aerosol version is, has anyone here used it?  I figure it might be more difficult to get into the out of reach areas.

 

Thanks

Just buy a trigger spray bottle to tip it in to.

Had to read that twice, thought you meant the IoM! :-)

you get a free trigger bottle when you buy the liquid one.

Which failed very quickly for me. Hence the garden trigger spray bottle

I've spotted the trigger, but I'm assuming it won't be anywhere near the propulsion and accuracy of the straw and propellant in the aerosol.

Not used the grease - where were you thinking of using it..?

Sounds more like a marine grease, ideal for cables and couplings, aside from wheelbearings and props there little to grease on a 7.

I tend to use the ACF50 in areas where you need the fluid to penetrate.  The grease might be helpful on large exposed areas.  I was thinking bare threads on the suspension bodies, the exposed threads on the track rod ends near the wish bones etc.
