Promises a lot...trying it on brand new Offenhauser aluminum intake manifold for the as-promised surface protection. Will see how it works as a penetrant also, just scored a couple of cans.

Never heard of it. According to the website, fixes every thing except hemorrhoids and heart murmur. Apparently its been around awhile. Are the classic car guys using it? That would be the place to ask.
