    WD40 is a water displacement oil. Its actually derived from fish oil. Corrosion is inevitable in a corrosive environment such as salt air. All you can really do is slow the process down.

    I am working on that right now. Have an experiment that might be on Pcola pier soon. Just have to see how well they hold up to powerpro first.

    Wilson, get you a tube of Simichrome Polish, I have used it for years on motorcycles and car wheels. If it won’t clean it, nothing will.

    I've got a little on mine Jeb, but its just the environment. Where it seems to actually have gotten me is in the the underwraps where you attach the guide, little bit of salt just gets in there and thus it rusts. I practically live on the beach too so everything over here just rusts if you don't maintain constant preventive maintenance. I need to start coating all my stuff with corrosion x.

    Next to salt,the two worst things for chrome plating are pool chemicals and Chinese sheet rock.Wilson,if ya don't mind spending another $25 or so consider the stainless wire spring guides that the guy in PC makes.
