Default Bottom of door starting to rust.. roll on bedliner???



The bottom of the driver's side door is rusted out and the passenger side is starting to show some signs of rust. I know this is common on good ol dodge trucks but it doesnt help that the tires stick out and throw debris towards my rockers and ,lower door. I plan on taking care of this this summer.

My question to you guys is what do you think of using roll on bedliner. As you can see in my picture, the stainless steel trim would not look right with the light kiwi color on my truck. So what I was thinking was using a roll-on bed liner like Herculiner after I fix my rust. I would do the whole area underneath the impact strips (which would be the dark green color)

Do you guys think it would look alrght or should I not do it.

If anyone else has other suggestion I am open to hear them. Also if anyone has done something like this and has pictures I would love to see them.

Thanks in advance

Hello ! Nice truck ! I have seen a few trucks with bedliner on the rockers but they spray-on. I have used HercuLiner once on the bed of my Chevy as per the directions and it started to peel within a few months. Not sure if anyone else has had this problem with roll-on but I will not use it again. The trucks I have seen with the spray-on looked pretty good especially when they were painted over to match the rest of the paint. Keep us informed of what you decide and Good Luck !

that is a good method to prevent it, but it will only cobver up the problem, you chould have the door blasted and painted, then do the liner, that way it cant keep spreading underneath the liner

The bedliner materil idea is a good one but I'd advice against the roll on type. Contact someone that does spray in liners and have them do it.

There's a product called POR-15. I know it comes in black, clear, and silver. It dries rock hard and it does a really good job of stopping rust. It can used as a base and then paint body color over it or use the clear over your body color. Don't get it on your skin 'cause it'll be there for a while.
I've used it on a variety of projects over many years and I really like it.

POR-15 is excellent stuff, used it on my '63 Impala trunk, then rhino-lined it. You just really have to make sure it makes contact with every rusted surface, even on the inside of the door. And DON'T get it on your skin, it won't come off. Don't ask me how I know that. LOL

First you need to stop the rust and the bedliner material won't do that. POR-15 will! It's great stuff so I'd treat the rusty areas with that first before covering it up.

por 15 it is pricey but worth it and when you put on herculiner you need to go beyond the directions by scraping it and sanding it and blowing out all dust with a air compressor and washing it with acetone
