Average of 6% humidity, 115 in the summer and no snow, ice, sleet, salt, along with our average annual 11" of rainfall. I don't worry about rust on my tub, axles, bumpers, wheel bearings, etc.....

jherrin215 So i have seen it a million times, but never really paid attention, and remember I'm not from the desert, I'm from KY 110 and sunny one day and 35 and snowing the next. Should I invest in some kind of rocker guard gasket before I put these on?? I would definitely rather spend a few bucks than have to worry about rust even though I might not be able to see it.

Where you live I'd worry more about rust. Where I live nope. Don't worry at all. Might get a little surface rust on them from where i've dug down to bare metal. I just paint over it.

jherrin215 That looks great Mr. C!! I guess I will go with the hammered black too. I have some textured black but I don't think it's the hammered, I would have to look. I think it's just a lil rough. Don't know which one I will do.

MR.CLIFFORD I use a product by marhyde on all my painted surfaces.

This is the finished product with rustoleum silver and hammered black.

Unlimited Mine started out as bare metal. I started by cleaning them with soap and water and then acetone. Then I hit them with two coats of self-etching primer. Then I painted them hammered black. The paint has held up very well, no flaking or pealing. I like the hammered paint because when I scrape them, I can just rough sand the gouges and then hit them with paint. It blends right in.

mr4x4 a good self etching primer would be a good idea then prim them then paint

if its me I just go into work and powder coat them

Painting Rocker Knockers

I was just wondering how everyone painted their rocker guards. I was wondering mainly about the prep. Is just rattle can primer good enough, or does it need some sort of self etching primer?? I was also wondering if everyone just rattle canned it or if it would be worth it to buy some paint and shoot it??
