One of my friends that lives on the East Coast will steam clean and then spray Tranny fluid on the underside of his cars at the beginning of each winter.

I seem to recall reading a homebrew recipe for something like this; it was one part each paraffin, boiled linseed oil, and WD-40. Melt the paraffin (safely, please), add the other stuff, and spray on. Never tried it but it seemed a reasonable mix for the purpose - the BLO should give it some extra durability once it sets up.

Eastwood Anti Rust meets the OP's description of 'off white with consistency of butter'. I used it on the J-H when I replaced the rockers.

Ams oil makes something called mp metal protector. Works great by the way.

I use texaco bridge grease. I believe its from the 70's. Scoop of that in a old pot, some varsol and heat to mix. Careful what it gets on, doesn't come off easy. I run it through a cheaper harbor freight gravity feed gun.

Its the consistency of ice cream in its raw form. I recently did a friends truck and added a bit of tremclad black to the mix in order to hide some of the underside surface rust. The first car I did it to was a VW jetta 6 years ago, it's still on the car and as thick as ever... no rust either.
