Triumph Herald - Is Dinitrol 1000 better than the ML cavity wax?

I am looking to provide my newly restored Triumph Herald that was my late fathers vehicle and had been stored away for decades. I have heard good reports about Dinitrol products but was wondering is Dinitrol 1000 better than Dinitrol ML? I would rather use the dinitrol 1000 due to being transparent, yet it notes that ML is more ideal for older cars when rust may already be present. I am a complete novice and learner when it comes to car restoration and rustproofing so any help and guidance is appreciated.

I have no experience of these but have used Waxoyl over the years with good results.

I'd use the see-through stuff. I used Waxoyl many years ago and didn't think much of it No access to such products in Taiwan so I use sunflower oil and motor oil with some apparent success, though it might grow mould in an unventilated cavity.

On something like a Herald, which is well worth spending money on, I'd get some kind of endoscope gadget (USB ones now quite cheap) for checking internal spaces like box sections, and in that context the see-through stuff will give you warning if rust is making a return.
