Boeshield T-9 or Cavity Wax?

I know that cavity wax has been suggested on this forum many times for use inside rocker panels, doors and other limited access areas for rust protection. I've never used the product myself, but I have used the Bowshield T-9 on rusty parts in a salt water environment. I once owned a fishing boat with many cast iron and steel parts in the engine room and below decks and rust was a problem. After I discovered T-9 and sprayed on a couple of coats, I found it worked very well. It left a waxy coating, fairly thick, that penetrated the existing rust and I believe actually stopped the rust. Painted surfaces were not affected by the T-9.

Has anyone used the product in an automotive environment? When cavity wax is sprayed in a door cavity during restoration, how long does it last?

I bet that T-9 would work just fine, and I bet it's very similar to other products like 3M's Rustfighter

I really dont know how long cavity wax lasts but it will probably outlast us, the main thing is to apply it to the cleanest rust free metal as possible, if you have good experience with T-9 use that, sound like a good product, sa the insides of the doors will not be seen.
