short of that... wipe it all down in grease and wrap it in plastic.
I uncrated a lot of WWII aircraft engine parts in the late eighties and early nineties. Cosmoline is definitely hit and miss protection wise. Some of the parts held up like new and some of it had corroded badly. Close to 50/50 in my experience. You can't say they didn't try. They don't pack stuff like that anymore.
