Body cavity rust treatment

I have an area under the tailgate of my Jeepster that is hard to access, but may collect water and cause rust. Does anyone know if a sealer of some sort can be sprayed (shutz gun maybe?) through a 2' or 3' piece of flexible tubing? Any other Ideas would be appreciated. I also thought of filling it with spray foam (messy) or seam sealer (hard to verify coverage).

I would not fill it with foam. My understanding is the foam holds water, and makes the problem worse.

This might be an old wives tale, and am sure that someone here can say yeah or nay, but an old bodyman I knew did a ground up restoration on an old mustang. Us used to take old motor old and spray the frame and some internal parts of the body. He;d let it set for a day or two. Swore it prevent rust better than anything else.

I've heard good things about the internal frame coating.

You could also talk to Krown or another rust-proofing company, they spray basically a commercial version of the eastwood stuff. They're usually relatively gentle on nice cars since all their customers are anal about the appearance of the cars.

If you're sure there isn't ALREADY significant rust, the used oil is a messy and environmentally nasty way to do it. I've done similar jobs with WD40, but never on cars I kept long enough to verify results.

the caviety coating takes a special gun you can not spray it out of the schultz gun and get the results needed, The gun foggs the area getting coverage to everything. Cavity coating is very thin. A quart will do an entire car also Very good product
