Yes, those are the photos I had seen!  Forgot that I had recently visited Martin's webpage.  Original "Cosmoline" 
is pretty inexpensive ($4.25 per 12 oz can) while Waxoyl or the Wurth equivalent is probably more in the range of 
$15 to $20 for the equivalent size.  I will make sure to get Waxoyl or equivalent for my upcoming project.

Thanks Huw.

That got me back on the trail - "Waxoyl" is what I was trying to find, and at Moss Motors.  Searching on cosmoline gets many, many sources.

 About a week ago I surfed my way onto some information about a 
yellowy, waxy spray-on material that was used to prevent rust on 
someone's Audi after just doing a suspension rebuild/refurbish.  Now 
I don't know where I found it

Under the thread "Waxy Anti-rust Spray-On?" I saved these bits and pieces:

1) That coating is Cosmoline, available in liquid or spray.

2) Wurth makes a similar product that is available in spray cans.

3) Sorry forgot to include the website http://www.mossmotors.com/

4) try this:

Hope one of these helps... there may have been more if you search out 
the whole thread.

Here's a picture of what you want courtesy of Martin Pajak. I'm pretty sure this is the Wurth stuff. http://www.quattro.ca/19874kq/87-4kq.htm

I never got a chance to reply to whomever posted that the stuff we are seeking is cosmoline. I know cosmoline and this isn't it. Cosmoline is much too soft. It's meant for coating bare metal machined parts so that they can be stored and shipped without rusting, not for use in engine bays and on suspension bits.
