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

DO NOT USE undercoating in a can stuff....in the cavities!!!...most 
will EAT the epoxy and truly expose the bare metal frame to rust,and 
some will actually TRAP moisture UNDER the undercoating..it will look 
like a good application of undercoating,but within a short time it 
will start rusting away the frame under it and you will NEVER see the 
rust until the frame rusts thru,by then it will be too late!! Test 
the undercoating in a small area FIRST to see if it will eat or 
effect the epoxy coating,leave it there for a couple weeks if it ate 
the epoxy or you take the undercoating off the test area and you see 
surface rust do not use it anywhere on the frame.
