I bought a can of this stuff along with a can of Griot's Body Cavity Wax. The
T-9 stuff flows and penetrates like crazy after you spray it. It drys to a
thin slightly sticky consistency. The Body Cavity Wax doesn't spread nearly as
well and dries much harder than T-9 or Waxoyl. As a test I treated three
pieces of steel wool with T-9, Body Cavity Wax, and Waxoyl. I put each in a
container of salt water. (This will eat out an untreated piece of steel wool
over night.) After several weeks, the T-9 is winning and Waxoyl is in second

I am really impressed with T-9. It penetrates so well I started using it in
place of Liquid Wrench on rusty nuts & bolts. I think it probably seeps into
seams better than Waxoyl. I plan on using T-9 along with Waxoyl to rustproof
my B this summer. The aerosol can should be more convenient in tight nooks and
cranies than the Waxoyl applicator.
