    just sounds like a little rust forming on the surface overnight, then you scrub it off on the first couple of applications. My wifes little Furd does it too. My '91 K5 does it after it's been sitting a couple of days in the right sort of weather (either wet or high humidity)

    Mine too. After first apply in the morning, the noise and touchiness is gone.
