Behind weld question

Hey, what do you guys do when you weld a hole shut or a patch panel where you can't get behind to treat the metal? How do you stop it from rusting if you can't get at it? Any ideas?

Thanks for the help.

I've come to like Rust Mort. It's a water thin rust treatment that can be sprayed through a common spray bottle into hard to get at places. Soak it on in there and spray compressed air also to swirl it around. They say rust never sleeps but this stuff will kill it or at least put it in a coma for a while. Don't get it in your eyes though it'll really sting. Hope to have helped.

before you put the patch on, spray it with weld-thru primer. don't recall a brand, but just ask at the paint shop you go to.....
this will help with prevention.
