Believe it was a recommended procedure in the field. We applied undercoating on ours hoping to protect the interior from potential corrosive fumes. Make sure you have the vent hose in place and that should help.

Thanks , we are slowly doing a factory restoration and didnít know if coating was applied at Willyís or as a field maint .
Our m170 had it , but we removed it during stripping process . Thinking of leaving it off for now .
