Not sure what can be done in there, but I've thought about pressure-washing mine, then applying an aftermarket rubber undercoat in them.

I agree, pressure washing is the only thing strong enough to get the grud from under this portion of the car.

Rubber undercoating like Will said. It'* waterproof, deadens the sound, seals out salt, snow, dirt...And protects against rust/corrosion. It lasts for a LONG time because of this and it resists chipping from stones and crap on the road. Plus it looks good too
