Kevin,
I have used lots of paint, converters and waxes over the years and have come to the conclusion that of the treatments available now POR15 is the best by far.
In areas such as wheel arches subject to abrasion it needs like most paints an annual check and touch up at least in our climate, but away from that in areas such as boot floors spare wheel wells etc it is very hard wearing and water resistant. Overcoated with Dinatrol wax and you have a very effective rust control system.
Having said that in your location either the paint or the wax on their own should halt any corrosion.
There was another paint treatment as called corroless or something similar available from Eastwood which was very good if not better, but now this at least in the UK is difficult to find but is I believe re branded still available from suppliers to the offshore oil industry.
Geoff.
