Some 20 years ago I used to coat my daily driver AE86 in UK with waxoyl all over the underside, plus inside door and panel cavities. Had it for 7 years before moving to Japan in '98 and although it had a few small rust bubbles on one door (where a previous owner had a door skin replaced badly) these never got any worse because of the waxoyl. Most of these rust proofing waxes are very good. I use some aircraft grade stuff from the U.S. on our daily drivers now, well worth investing the time. If most imports had this sort of work done on them when they came in they'd suffer far fewer rust problems - ideally needs to be reallied every year to the chassis though!
