    Frame Saving that Frame You Just Built

    This may not be the place to post this but I will try. I have a new steel frame sitting in the garage and it is below freezing. Is it okay to spray JB Weigle frame saver in those conditions and then bring it in after to put the parts back on? Wondering if any condensation would build between the frame and the frame saver when I bring it indoors.

    I don't honestly know. I suppose that's why no one else has responded to your post. You could bring it in the house, let it warm up, then spray the frame saver (with plenty of newspaper on the floor)(if no one you live with objects).

    Thanks for the reply...I ended up bringing it in and letting it warm up. I then used Boeshield T-9. Supposedly it works well and it is a lot easier to clean up with less fumes.

    I kinda like the smell of Framesaver. Can't say I'd want that smell lingering in the house though.
