Bear in mind that relatively fresh sheet metal has different needs for the wax/grease to stick than a rusted piece of sheet metal in a real old crusty car, like in the test. I'm using either Fluid Film or Mike Sanders.
Can you get some kind of paint-oil? I used "Owatrol" oil, smells line seed based, to freshen up old under body coating before smearing new stuff on it a few days later. Probably similar oils can be found for treating wood paneling and stuff on ships.
That article is incredibly helpful, lots of good information in there. I think I'll probably go with the Mike Sanders as well, if I can find a US distributor near me. That's a really good idea re: freshening the undercoating as well. I'll see what I can scrounge up.
1985 760 Jurbo- Almost time for boost-fueled enjoyment, currently a handy way to prevent my wife from parking in the garage.
2000 Honda CRV- Åsnan
2014 MINI Clubman- A fragile German-designed, Peugeot-powered, British-built monstrosity. Excels primarily in going around corners on three wheels.
