My JH had what looks like the same stuff all over the bottom. Even the drive shaft had a fair bit of thick over-sprayed undercoating on it. My panel cover had been sprayed as well.

Interesting that your panel cover does not have the undercoating. Either it was removed to apply the coating or it has been replaced. I would scrape it off only where needed or if you can see it is cracking / flaking off as mine had in several places. I had significant rust where the coating was no longer bonded to the body.

If its any consolation your panel cover is in MUCH better condition than mine was!

Good job on getting another JH back on the road!
