Ideas for coating inside spacing - frame, windshield frame, etc.

As spring approaches I start planning work on my tractor (sorry, YJ ) and one thing I've been thinking of is to anti-rust those hidden places like inside of the frame, windshield frame, etc. Due to specifics of the location it's a chemical work only. In ant case what's the better way to approach it? Also, does it make any sense to use foam to fill some of those or it will be more harm than benefit? Thanks for any thoughts.

Filling it with foam may trap moisture? Just a thought.

This is a little off topic but if your doing that type of work go ahead and rhino line your interior. I did that on my 91 YJ and I love it. Easy clean and no worrying about rusting if you take care the problem before hand!!!

That's the plan. I wanted to take care of the hidden spaces and cavities also.

Yea I did a bit of that stuff when I got to change my windshield hinges and put in a new stereo. Its a pain but well worth the trouble.

Look here, you might find something.

I've used the anti-rust and the undercoat. So far, so good.

I wouldn't use the foam (well if was a beater I was trying to fill holes up to pass inspection I would).
