A friend showed me a trick that I've used for years to get to those hard to reach places. Take the nozzle and tip off a can of brake cleaner and install it on your favorite can of Rustoleum or whatever paint you want to use to seal the hidden places. Then get in as far as you can and start spraying. It goes on very wet and really shoots a heavy fog, so be prepared, but it gets into places you'd never reach and is easy to direct the spray. I've even used small hose to connect two nozzles end to end to reach really hard deep spots.
When I was painting the undercarriage, floorpans, and frame on my last project I used this method to get into tight areas, then did the rest with my normal spray gun and even a brush on some. Really works great!
