herculiner

i know, i know it's like beating a dead horse on this thread, however i have a question that needs to be answered before i do anything. Now i know that i have rust that is visible already along my rocker panels, i really don't want to buy new panels, so i am going to herculine the rocker panels, but my question is this, if there is already rust there, if i just cover up the exterior of the rust, won't it still be eating at the metal from the backside of the body or am i mistaken, what should i do

so i need to just sand down the surrounding areas of the rust spots and prime them, and it would protect it from rusting, so the herculiner will protect it even more?

and after doing the PPP, this will prevent the existing rust from rusting further?

well that's what i was figuring, however i was talking to my dad about doing it, even though he used to be a painter, he told me that doing this will be a complete wast of time because it will only delay the rusting that is already taking place because all i will be doing is covering it up from the outside and changing the appearance, however it is still rusting behind the herculiner but he suggested to me that in order to fix it properly, i will neeed new panels

He is correct.....to stop rust completely, either crop it out and weld new in,...or replace the panel completely.......but if you are only going to have it .....maybe 5 years...

HERC IT.....
