I just finished hack-n-slashing the rust off my jeep, had a quarter size hole in the driver side rocker. hacked out the cancer, now had a 8"long by 2" wide hole.
welded some sheet metal on and buffed it smooth, but not too smooth, for one - I am lazy and for 2 I want to cover the whole rocker panel with truck bed liner or some other covering that is a little more durable than flat black enamel!
for those of you who have done this...
I want some suggestions on what type to use, how to prep for longest lasting coverage, and any other useful hints and tips

A little off topic, which do you think is better? Heculiner or the walmart spray on stuff?

I have stuff called gatorguard lining my interor, this stuff is thicker than anything I have seen but also more pliable. my dad had herc in the box of his truck and chipped easily when I dropped a brake rotor on it from 4 inches... ironically I didnt want to do the same when I loaded up my brakes rotors in the jeep and tryed not to drop anything but alas i did and it didnt chip or nothing.. very impressed. i will be using it again

I wouldn't use the walmart stuff. I preferred the rough texture Herc provided for me.
I agree, Herc is pretty good, thats what I use, but be sure you 1) Stir the liner well to evenly space the rubber particles 2) Prep well with turpentine/paint thinner, scuff the surface so the paint looses it waxey finish 3) Paint and roll on two thick coats
