What do you think about using POR 15 for this application? The big openings that I can get at with the dremel won't be an issue, but access to the small openings, and especially the various screw holes, will be tough. I was thinking that POR 15 on a Q-Tip swabbed into the screw holes might be an effective way to get access and coverage both through the hole and on the edges immediately behind where there is no access.
