67 Le Mans...rust INSIDE deck lip and hood

So im working on my bros 67 Le Mans. His deck lid is rusting from the inside out, but it is not rusted through, it is just showing up like on the trunk side. The hood the same thing, like under the hood surface and between the hood and the support structure i guess you would call it.

how can i neutralize the rust, and spray some epoxy or por-15 style of product. its hard to get to. i know Eastwood has this can with a hose on it so you can spray inside chassis and such.

any primer can or product similar to that? or with Cheapwood work? lol

. LOL! Eastwood is far from "cheapwood"...

. Rustoleum makes a rust converter available at most auto parts stores/WalMarts... Permatex used to, may have been bought out by Rustoleum...

. Scrape/remove as much loose/surface rust and loose paint as you can get to... prolly have to remove hood and trunk to manipulate them around... vacuum rust/paint away... spray a good soaking coat of rust converter in... repeat... with part in position so that it runs down into rusted area... let dry at least 24 hours in a dry, low humidity environment... then coat with a rust inhibiting primer... couple/three coats... then paint... the 3 different types of coatings work together to prevent any further moisture ever getting in again...

well ive heard nothing but bad things about their products, but thats something else.

will there is no scaly rust. its all surface rust. and i already have 2 gallons of SPI exopy ready to roll once im ready. but saying like the inside of the deck lid and hood. to where i cant get sand paper into, and i dont know if i should sandblast inside it cuz then i would have trouble getting all the media out. ill get pictures later on i had a brain fart and forgot to take them.

what about like some evaporust or rustover like product?

the real problem is accessing it, unless i skin it which im 100 percent trying to avoid. im already doing a damn roof replacement cuz it was a vinyl top

What ever you do don't blast it, or wire wheel it, either method will warp the outer skin. Your best bet is hand sanding the best you can, or chemical dipping in the big stripping tanks cleans the rust really good. Not really many options for you.
