Thoughts on underbody tar spray

What are people's thoughts on the tar based (I think) underbody spray on coatings? I've just spent a week chiseling it off from under the front wheel arches. It was anything from 1-5mm. It's done it's job as there is NO rust anywhere. As soon as I started chipping it off I had second thoughts about removing it but I wanted to change the colour of the car. Under the coating was the original body colour. It also acts as a body/noise deadener. I've decided it can stay on the underside of the car as I'm not tackling that. It's also under the bonnet.
I might add that it is an American import (1963). If seems to be popular there. Just wondering if anyone's done a resto or just applied this as a rust protective measure if it is worthwhile or leave the nice painted finish

On my FX i have just used underbody deadener, actually think a lot of it got painted black first. just chassis black nothing special,
if your not showing the underside of car and its a weekend cruiser its the way to go, no need to keep it looking to pretty, easy to clean and touch up as required,
