Few questions before I HERC my TJ.
Spent last 2 days sanding inside of tub to do the Herculiner bed coat. I was looking at the outside where the rockers are and I have a few little dents there. I was going to get rocker guards down the road but was thinking about doing it the same time as tub with the Herculiner.
Question is when you remove the little trim part ( forget the name) that flows with the fender flares I am thinking there will be a hole or two there in the body. If so what do I fill with before doing the liner? Also I am sure it has been done but I cant find it on here. Anyone do it? Pictures? hold up well?

I would do a small patch of fiberglass, but these might be hung by just tape not sure. Body puddy or bon do isn't a good idea as it sucks in water even when dry. You'd have to seal it from the back with a primer so that it doesn't suck in any water. Fiberglass is a bit easier plus completely waterproof. You could even go with duct tape from the back hahaha jk!

Don't want to remove them until sure. They may even be clipped. I will have to go look.
1 last question...I just chiseled out the drain plugs in the floor. They were held in with a sealent and metal with two clips on the bottom. Where do I get rubber ones to put in the holes?

Hmmm I'd try a hardware store like ace or home depot or even a local one and look for grommets similar to the one used for the firewall in the drivers side.

Thank you for responses. Going to order the rubber plugs. I am not rock crawling just want to cover up the little dings and since I am going to do tub decided to do same time. I looked for pics but cant find any good ones.
