They can be accessed from the ends if the bumpers are removed and there is other access holes around the legs and sills.

Have a look on the "rustbuster" site,some good products on their.
On my iPhone can't put a link up but their selling complete kits for around £100.
One I fancy is called 'Dinitrol classic rust proofing kit' @ £125,contains a 3 stage application,kit inc long nozzles and sprays etc to access hard to reach areas.

I would be putting a good coat of quality paint before the wax, from what I read Epoxy 121 is the bees knees.

For such a big job I wouldn't be happy with just treating the rust then a bit of wax over it. Anybody I have been talking to that has done the job has treated the rust then zinc primer then Epoxy then stone chip and some a coat of wax after that. Its not a job that you want to have to do every year. Do it once and do it right hence my weeks of research.

I'm just going by what the guy has told me and from personal experience.

Mind you. My shell has no rust, just dont see the point in painting it, but I see where your coming from.

I've researched this to death and its looking like i may use the POR 15. It may be not as straight forward to use as other products but it seems to perform extremely well. Check this link out. If you watch it through till 7.40 it will then show you how tough this stuff really is

I spoke with Rustbuster and they sell the paint and stone chip. The link you have given will do the job but may have to be done again say in a year or two. I don't want to do it ever again. An extra £50 will give it two good coats of paint.

If your car has no rust well now is the time to protect it properly.
