[DML] Upon closer inspection I found...

....that my frame, while in very good overall shape, has some minor 
rust issues. All of them center around the engine mount box. I had 
discovered some superficial rust in this area earlier and made a 
mental note to check it out, now I found that some of the epoxy 
chips off. The metal underneath is brown but not totally rusted 
through; I would say it is surface rust. Now here is where it gets 
interesting; the effected section extends inside of the frame box! 
None of the metal I can see inside the frame is severely corroded. I 
can not punch a screwdriver through metal anywhere on my car however 
I do know that if I left these areas totally unattended for there 
would be some serious hell to pay in the future. 

I plan to order some POR 15 to cover up all that I can. What do you 
wise people suggest I do for the inside portion? I suppose I can 
chip away as much as possible by sticking a knife in through the 
small access holes, then spray with rustoleum? I believe that my 
leaky otterstat caused this rust over the years as the car spent 
most of its 25 years in Arizona. Cutting holes in my frame for 
access is NOT an option for me at this point financially. I do not 
plan on driving in the rain. Any suggestions?
