    We used to use some similar product from Silkolene to protect castings outside the foundry I worked in and it didn't dry, more like a sticky coating. We used to borrow some to do cars and it does retain colour but it got dirty. What are you putting it over as the stuff under it does show through.

    All my underbody items are just painted now, I want an extra wax layer I can top up every year but something clear/light than anything black/coloured.

    Mask up the exhaust and brakes and shoot it everywhere.
    I'm thinking the ankor wax is better just for the cavities?

    I’ve given up on ‘treatments’, and gone back to grease.

    waterproof, mobile, wipes off if required, easy to reply, with little cleanup

    This is my '28 Chevy coated all over with Anchor wax, five years later, no rust reappeared yet.

    It also sealed the oil cloth fabric roof covering that was crazed and leaking, slapped on three good coats, thought it might rot the cotton but it didn't, it soaked in and no leaks since.
