Here in the UK I use something called Waxoyl (hammerite products) as it's name implies it's a nice thick oil/wax mixture, I used it on all my old Saab 99's and they lasted for years..Of course saab rust-proofing was far superior as standard than the english product around at the time.... --- Outgoing mail is certified Virus Free.
