I had the same issue when I dropped my gas tank - a very thick coat of undercoating. All I did was get a good can of paint stripper (I think it was Red Devil brand) brushed it on, let it set,it turned the undercoating to mush and it wiped right off. Had to do a second appliation in some areas. I ended up with a shiny new looking gas tank. Then I painted it with POR-15 and some "fresh steel" paint. it looks great and I shouldn't have to worry about it for a very long time.
