Never used lizard skin, seen it after it has been done, but have done a lot of painting though, I'll throw my 2 cents out here, it may do some good. If it is thick it will be difficult to spray on and make it look good, thick paint/coating tends to run badly. I wouldn't suggest using a roller, it won't finish as you think, especially over a large area like running boards. Since it is thick (I've painted forktrucks with very thick, un thinned industrial paint) you probably will have to use about 65lbs pressure on your gun, and lower and you'll probably get bad streaks and running. I'd test paint a piece of sheet metal first, thick heavy coating material can be hard to gauge speed/stroke to get a even smooth coat. Good Luck!
