WJ rocker panel repair

Like I posted in the what have you done to your wj thread, here are the pics of my panel repair. I ground out the rusted areas and then did a few laters of fiberglass and then top coated/filled imperfections with bondo. Then I primed with 2 coats sanded and then another coat of primer. After that dried and I feathered the edges I taped it off and did 4 coats of plasti-dip on both rockers.
This stuff was so easy to work with and it came out great!
Sorry the final pic is of the driver side and the progress pics are on the passenger I forgot to take a passenger shot last night.

Nice job. I would be very interested to hear how well plasti dip holds up on the rockers....

Thats the main reason I used it and not a chassis coat or anything like that. I have heard it lasts 2-3 years typically but who knows..
I plan on running it through car washes and everything to see how it holds up to normal wear and tear.
