That was my next question: whether that hole provided access to the vulnerable/affected "compartment" inside the rocker structure.

I was going to wait until the fall to do this repair, but my curiosity has got the better of me: I think I'll cut open the rusted part of the rocker panel tonight. I'll post pics tonight or tomorrow.
