A local valeter uses ACF 50 aerosol. He told me he puts the can in a large plastic jug which he fills with hot water from the kettle.  By the time the water has cooled down to finger warm the ACF 50 is ready to spray.  He does both cars and motorbikes using this approach rather than the trigger spray.

how about doing this for the track rod and ball joint. Carbon fibre tube from classic carbon rubber boot from electrical wholesalers used for swa cables. Sorry about the image orientation. How do I rotate it.

Ditto , buy a variable nozzle, small capacity, spray bottle. I always heat up the fluid in a pan of water before use as this generates a finer spray, especially in Winter temps.

I use black pvc electrical tape on the suspension arms and renew every year or two. Stops stone chips.

I was advised to do that four years ago, works a treat and you can barely tell its on.
