Rocker guards/rust repair

My 98 TJ has a rust spot on the rocker. I bought these eBay Motors: JEEP TJ diamond plate rockers with 1inch lip black (item 310122660977 end time Feb-20-09 16:26:07 PST)

Now my question is how to install? I was thinking black rivets? Now should I use some sort of silicon to keep the water out? Should I grind down the rust and than por15 it first?

you definitely need to address the rust issue. if you just put the rocker guards over it the rust spot will continue to grow. you should definitely grind it & then por15 it. the ones i have on my cj are bolted on. i like the bolts better. they are easier to install and remove, imo.
