[DML] What to do with flaked epoxy in concealed areas of frame?

I spent most of today chipping and scraping off loose epoxy from my 
frame, and a good sized area of soft bubbled epoxy from an old brake 
fluid leake by the previous owner about 4 years ago.  I have prepped 
the exposed rust with the POR-15 kit, and ready to apply the POR-15 
tomorrow to the rusty areas, then will touch up with the Krylon.  I 
have a concern for areas where I got a finger or tool inside and 
flaked off huge pieces of epoxy, especially in the rear area of the 
frame in the two concealed box-like areas.  The pieces just sit 
loose now in those areas, with no way to get them out.  What do I do 
to protect those areas now?  I do not have a means to spray POR-15 
and am concerned about breathing in vapors as well.  Would it be 
beneficial to either squirt the Krylon into top and bottom openings, 
hoping it covers exposed metal surfaces, or perhaps a 
moisture/corrosion resistant oil to hopefully coat the metal?  What 
have others done in these areas?

By the way, I do not drive the car in rain or snow, and only nice 
days in the spring summer and fall, and it remains garaged at all 
other times.  I live in central MA. So perhaps I do not need to 
worry too much about a little concealed rust??
