    If it was getting rusty expect it to rust about 30x quicker now. I made the mistake of bedlining the rockers on my old truck and another friend did it to his ford before we knew better. They both went from kinda rusting to really rusting out fast in a hurry since it trapped everything behind them and there was no way to slow down the rust anymore.

    There were only a few very small rust bubbles, and we sanded them all down to bare metal and sprayed a rust preventor on them.

    That'll look good. I used Duplicolor bedliner in the spray can to do the passenger rocker (so far) on my Chevy. Needs two or three coats with the spray stuff, but it looks good.

    Yea we are going above and beyond what the instructions say as far as prep work goes, So it should turn out good.

    Its absolutely necessary to do more prep then the instructions say... if you do excellent prep you may have decent results, I used it on my 96's bed about 5 years ago, I was less then thrilled with the outcome, looked good at first, but any use and it was garbage, rockers perhaps are a less stressful environment then in the bed with things sliding in and out.

    oh and GV and GP, you guys crack me up every time... lol

    Were gonna finish it up tomorrow, We spent all today prepping it and making sure everything was perfect before we started rolling it on.

    I'll be doing this with U-POL Raptor 2 stage bed liner, tinted graphite metallic. I'm spraying the cab floor, inside of the doors, and the bottom of the cab two after all rust gets treated and parkerized.
