 +====Underseal====
 +All Elgrand's are imported to from Japan. In Japan, they do not salt the roads in winter which means their vehicles do not require undersealing, although vehicles that were from regions of Japan close to the coast may already suffer from signs of rust (salty sea air).
 +
 +Depending on where you live in the world, your country may salt roads in winter to help with ice. In the UK, for example, gritters are typically from around November through to February each year depending on weather conditions. If your roads are salted, and you do not underseal your JDM import, the salt from the road will spray up and will corrode any unprotected metal surfaces that it lands on. 
 +
 +Undersealing is the process of adding a barrier to the underbody of your vehicle to protect the chassis, components and body work from salt damage. This will help to prevent rust appearing on your car and allow you more years of trouble free motoring. 
 +
 +There are various types of undersealing systems. From cheap annual jobs, to more expensive long life applications. The method you choose is up to you. You can research the various methods and select the best that fits both you and your budget. But it is important that you do this. Do not leave your JDM vehicle unprotected from salty roads.
