Really no good way (that I've found) to treat the rust inside the seat cross members. If you have holes rusting through the cross members I'd recommend just cutting them out and weld in some fresh ones. Mine were fairly solid, so I used a bug sprayer and a gallon of Ospho from Eastwood and soaked the inside of both supports (not to mention both clam shells). You can get away with bringing up the stock holes abit, and adding a couple of more to assist in the "Ospho-hosedown" proceedure, and then plug them with some rubber plugs from J.C. Whitney or your FLAPS.
