What does everyone use to protect metal in the engine bay?

So what does everyone use to protect metal components in the engine bay, I spray pretty much all metal components in ACF-50, except for electrical components eg alternator.

This has worked great for me in the past last car I sold was pretty much brand new, but just wondering what everyone else uses that might be less sticky.

I simply degrease it, clean up with some APC and then apply some black on black from Chemical Guys or any other similar product.

Sorry I didn't read your post properly. Didnt see the metal part lol.

I hear that, that is a standard feature on Land Rover's, very good of them taking rust prevent around the engine so seriously. I wonder why they skimped everywhere else?
