Undersealing was my bonus job when I worked for the Rootes dealership, they paid me thirty bob each to stay after hours and underseal the new Humbers Hillmans and Sunbeam Talbots.
The underseal liquid black, came in 10 gallon pressure containers and blasted on by compressed air.

I often wonder how many of those cars survive now, it was damned good stuff.

Ni not Zeibart but I can't remember now what it was called, it will probably pop into my head half way through the night. :)

My mother bought a new Morris 1000 traveller in 1963 and paid quite a bit extra to have it undersealed - the underseal lasted well but the metal underneath it went rotten!
