It may work, so I could be wrong.
The RTV black could have been used instead and wouldn't have cost you anymore. Anyways, its always good to have around. You'll need it someday. I like Permatex 2.

Also the bead of RTV at the front and rear didn't appear too ''high'' in the pics. It must be tall enough to bridge the gap and a little ''squish'' as it sets down.

I've never eliminated rocker cover gaskets completely before. I've used sealant with the gaskets. Not sure about this one.

Hopefully someone else comments as well.
