Drill 1/2" holes in rockers, doors etc and use plugs afterward. Most cars are more rust resistant now than 20 yrs ago but in the salt belt they take a beating so slowing that down is the name of the game.

I undercoat my vehicles every year, I use a guy in New Hampshire, he sprays Fluid Flim. Living on the rust belt. This is necessary, I have diesel pickup trucks and if I did not do this. The chassis would go long before the motor.. I don't know where you guys live but anyone in the area of New Hampshire should check them out. Most of the shops who used to do this have been put out of business by the EPA. Here is a link to his website NH Oil Undercoating
I have used Fluid Film. Makes a huge difference. You can put it on bare steel, let it sit outside and wont rust for months

I've had a car since I was 16, never put a brake line or a fuel line on any of them.
Its a crappy job, but its worth it if your going to drive your car for the long haul. Our van is an 04, and no rust on it yet, I've been using tranny fuild on it, but I've got this semi drip stuff I'm going to use tomorrow,
My blazer went to the wrecker with 350K on it, no paint on the rockers, but no rust either, 10yrs of driving , no brake lines or fuel lines done.

Could have used this knowledge several years back when I sold an old truck.. It had a leaky rear main seal on the engine and rocker covers - could have sold it as a "self oiling" model.....
