Go to a tuner that does under sealing or if your up to the job do it yourself.most evo's don't last long due to owners not looking after the motor,I see one at my tuners and my god what a state I don't think I've seen an evo so run down

is it surface rust or rot
any close up pics
undersealing over rust will make it rot evan quicker
if its surface rust clean it off then wax oil it

If it's surface rust, then get it back to the bare metal with paint/rust remover drill or grinder attachments, apply protective paint such as Rust Bullet, then seal with a product like Dinitrol. Check out a few of the restoration threads for more detail.

More than likely just surface rust & pitting which can be ground back treated and painted. If it's got as far as rot, then if you plan on keeping the car I'd seriously consider having a specialist cut any rot out and weld in a replacement panel/section.

During my restoration I found I had poorly repaired accident damage that caused my sill to rot and so ended up replacing that section.



Almost anything can be fixed

if you cars been in your country for a long time PROPER rust shuldnt be an issue on what is still a young car

id have said its only likly to be small surface rust and easily treatable ,with a good clean ,and wax oil ,DONT underseal it with black stuff ,it will ony come back to bite you later in life
personally id be inclined to leave it its not likly to become an issue before the rest of the cars worn out anyway

The problem m8 here is that there are no good specialists in this filed as the trust and rotting stuff is not happening much. We do not have snow so the use of salt and chemicals are minimal and not causing any probs.
So, not much experience in that kind of stuff from specialists. I wish i could make a trip to the UK to have it fixed! (and tuned )
