    Go the POR15 route for the underside.

    But.

    Is there any rust? If so, how extensive?

    If it's not that extensive to warrant cut and weld panels, how are the sills and pillars? Or other boxed sections? Any pinholes or other signs there may be rust inside?

    POR15 make a snake oil (expensive as poison) you can paint/pour/slosh/shove inside boxed sections over rust and it will neutralise it.

    Long story short, I would start with the underside and leave the upper body alone until the underside is sorted. Would be good if you could tip the car to inspect in the cold light of day.
