Hi Nigel,
Yes, the stone guards must be removed to access the drain holes in those voids in front of and behind the doors (over, or on, the rockers). There are two holes in front of the doors, and one behind. These voids and the floor pans themselves seem to be the primary areas for accumulation of water and thus rust. There are also 3-4 drain hills on the bottom of the doors that can be easily checked from underneath.

Incidentally, when I acquired 18059 last year, the worst rust I found was in front of the rear wheels where the holes were blocked - not by road debris, but by factory applied undercoating.
