Default Spray underside of car with a rust converter?

Do
anti-rust products anti-rust products
actually work? Would anybody recommend buying a few bottles and spraying the entire underside of the car? Example: Will spraying the exhaust parts make them have a longer life span?

Spraying the exhaust parts will help the car catch fire, that would shorten its life span.

Yes it can prolong the life of the body.

Rust converters will only work on surface rust. They assist in a chemical change to harden the iron oxide, if you have rust bubbles or rot, it wont do anything.
