Dont take them apart...
heres what you do ..Using a hole saw cut a nice hole in the rear wheel well to gain access to the rocker,then the front of the rocker, mabee 1-1 1/4"... blow out all the debrie with a pencil type blower and slide the hose all the way in to the other end of the rocker then do it from the other direction...Once its all cleaned out and dry then you spray the wax or undercoating in with an undercaoting wand after that you use a standard plastic hole plug to seal off the two holes,,,
most logical answer yet.

you would make a hole in the ENDS of the rockers, the rear wheel well is spot welded to the rocker so you will have to drill through it also, you may have to remove the front fender or at least the skirt to gain access to the front end of the rocker but it should be a lot easier than the rear...and ,of coarse you'll have to remove the tires.
Being half idiot, I always pick out my plug and make a hole in a piece of scrap to make sure its a nice tight fit,before I drill into the car....
Lets say you make a 1" hole in the end of the rocker and you want to get the crap out ,you can duct tape a piece of 3/4" pvc to your shop vac to stick in the hole and suck that stuff out also ....

Thanks, I was thinking about ways to make the shop vac fit into the panel, guess i'll try the pvc pipes.

The car has been completely stripped of all parts except for the rear axle, just have not got to that part yet.

I stand corrected .

Would it be best use cavity wax and similar products after the car is painted? If they migrate after they are applied it may be easy for them to contaminate the paint. I have never used them so I don't know, I am just asking.

Being I had a nap last night from 9:30 to 11:30 I did pretty good. The family couldn't believe that I was asleep just feet away on my new memory foam mattress (our Christmas present to ourselves).

Cool. I celebrated by snuggling up to my wife. You know how us old farts are.

Happy new year everyone. I have had way too much fun with this thread. I am going to give it back to Rusthater now. Forgive me for sidetracking your thread.
