I have used hammerite with added waxoyl on mine an gave it 4-5 coats, it goes on well with a small paint brush.

I need to underseal my car too. What's best to get it ready for the job? Jet wash, degreaser and a wire brush?

A wire wheel on a drill saves a lot of time, remember to use saftey goggles tho.
