If you drill a 5/8 hole you might be able to get a camera lens and flash in simultaneously, to inspect the pending horror.
There are access holes where the rocker molding attaches to the sheet metal. I plan to spray inside there when I do this.

If you like doing the job yourself the cans of ff are good but it will take a couple hours.
Sunday is car day for me, it'll give me something to do. I will most likely do everything when swapping over to winter wheels/tires.
