sandblast/undercoat frame

So my search for a TJ is heating up a bit. Looked at a few today. First place I stopped both of them were rotted out bad.

Went to another, he had several. He had me check out one out of my price range with a mint frame. He said he had it sandblasted and undercoated.

There were 2 or 3 jeeps I am interested in. They all have some rust spots on the frame, but no rot. He said he has all the frames redone before he sells them.

What do you all think of this? Think this is a long-term fix? If I maintain the coating yearly think it would last for awhile?

I think they usually rot more from the inside, make sure he isn't just cleaning up the outside of a rusty frame.

Well I know they arent doing anything for the inside, but I checked out the frames and both (the one redone, and one to be redone) didn't show any signs of rot. They wont pass inspection here in MA if you take it to a shop that actually inspects the car...

I am just hoping with maintenance (undercoating before every winter) it will last me for years.
