Those look great, just the way I want to do mine. So you used rustoleum spray? How many cans did you use? and what type of prep work haha.

Sorry im just looking into doing this to fix some of my rust.

I'm having a problem with the seam just under the drivers door on the rocker. I've tried grinding it clean and sanding it clean, the rocker seam is rotting in between the metals.
I'm afraid if I seal it in with undercoating, I'll end up with ahole
suggestions ?

I really like the look of doing this and I have some rust/dings on my rocks and bottoms of my doors but I really want to know how the spray on holds up where the coating meets the paint? If preped properly how long can I expect it to last? and would you recomend a roll-on instead of sprayon?

I will post some pics tomorrow but i did mine with the DIY herculiner kit. Turned out great especially since my truck is white and has the black trim pieces behind the tires already.
