I would strongly recommend the use of Dinol AB's "Dinitrol" products
to coat and inhibit the internals of metal aircraft structures.
Dinitrol is used by many airlines for corrosion prevention in
airliners, and is approved for use by most of the large aircraft
manufacturers. We've done extensive tests on various wax coatings
for inhibition of steel and aluminium, and the Dinitrol products
have proved to be the best commercially available product we've come
across. It does tend to be on the expensive side, but I think it's
worth it. Dinol also make a range of applicators to get the Dinitrol
into hard to get at spaces.

If you approach your local Dinol agent or rep, they may donate what
you need in exchange for a bit of PR. Their agents in Australia and
New Zealand have always been helpful to me in this regard.  The
Parent company is Dinol AB and can be contacted at

For my own personal interest, what type of aircraft is the group
restoring?
