bed liner rocker liner

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

thanks

Here is mine, did it with Herculiner. First one is preped by buffing. I did two coats, six hours apart rolled on. Then I let it sit without driving it for 4 days. It came out flawless.

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

You buy Herc at any autoparts store, $70-$100.

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

I didn't, I also got some pretty expensive painting tape though too, and I did it in 20 degree temperatures, since I see your in Cape Cod... it probably wouldnt hurt
