Rust on inside of rear cross member

I have some rust on the inside of the rear crossmember. In the corner where it meets the frame rail. I'm not sure I can completely remove this by hand because it is hard to access. I have Waxoyl and the rest of the frame is Waxoyled. Is it bad if can't remove all the rust completely before I Waxoyl it? Is it better if I spray it with Rust cap of some sort?

I'd make sure all that flaky/bubbly rust is gone before applying waxoyl, POR 15, etc. It will be tough to get in there but spend some time on it and you'll get there. Even just using a flat head screw driver to scrape off will help a lot. Then go with some coarse sand paper or something. Spending a little time now will save a lot of time later.

In short, yes. The waxoyl will just hide the rust as it continues to eat away the metal. You need remove it. Might be worth finding a local mobile sandblaster and have them blast the frame.

What about the inside of the rear crossmember?

It's hollow and open on the sides, right?
