When can I get frame savers(protect steel frame)?
How do I use them?
Jun 21, 2003 7:07 PM Scroll down to find Frame Saver.

It's easiest to apply while overhauling your bike. With the fork removed you will find holes on the inside of the head tube. One is for the top tube and the other is for the down tube. With the BB removed there is one for the down tube, seat tube and one for each chain stay. With the seat post removed you should be able to get it in the top tube and each seat stay. There are also drain holes in the stays near the rear dropouts.

Many shops should have JP Weigle Framesaver or can can mail order from several places. Its not hard to do but it can be a bit messy. Best to completely strip the frame. Stuff paper towels into bottom bracket. Squirt the stuff into each tube then stuff a rag into each tube opening to stop the runoff. Twirl the frame around in each dimension to get the stuff to cover completely inside the tube. Wipe off any dripping on outside the frame before it dries. After it dries you can use WD40 to remove any spots. Let it dry and reassemble frame. Good luck
