I was told by a very well respected TVR specialist that it's crazy to underseal anything other than a brand new car, because it traps any moisture, dirt or rust and can actually help the rust to spread.

I'm not sure which side to believe, but I think it's worth considering both points.

No signs of body rust only on suspension parts/subframe/diff which only have a light coating of black paint on them from the factory.
