A question for all those who have lined their tubs

What did you guys do with all the removal sheet metal on the inside, like the tranny tunnel and the panels around the bellhousing? Did you line right over them? Did you remove them? I am considering doing the inside of my tub before I put in new seats and a full roll cage. I would hate to line them and then have it be impossible to get them off to pull the bellhousing bolts. I am also thinking about rattle canning the outside just to make it look a little less like a POS. But, if I do that, will I have to change my name ITSAKINDAPOSCJ5? Any help is greatly appreciated as usual. If you guys have any updates on how well the liners have lasted in your tubs I wold also appreciate that. I did a search and read all the threads on this subject and most were from 2001. Just curious on how the liners have held up since then. Thanks again. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

I taped around the center hump. The herculiner comes to about .5" below the shifter boot.

Re: A question for all those who have lined their tubs

I removed the shifter tunnel cover and herculined it seperately. I also put small bits of masking tape over any bolt/screw heads throughout the tub. As I have needed to get to them, I just peel off the tape, which, after a year now, still peel off fine.

The herculiner still seems good after 1 year, 9 months of that without the top on and in the sun/rain/snow/etc. It is a little faded, but it may just be dirty, as I need to hose it out. It has lost a little of its "tack" and is a little slicker, but much better than the bare metal ever was, especially when wet.

We have driven the CJ about every other weekend, with dogs and gear in the back, and the only place it has come loose is way under the dash around the pedals where I did not prep it very well, everywhere else is holding strong.

Re: A question for all those who have lined their tubs

For the tranny tunnel cover in my YJ, I just removed it, then Herculined the tub, and bolted it back in. I removed anything and everything I could from the tub, then Herculined it all. As for how it's holding up, I guess ok. It's peeling in some spots, and doesn't hold up worth crap to any scrapes or anything like that. When I start rolling in the big bucks(if I ever do [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]), then I'm going to Rhino line it. It's lifetime warrantied, so you can't go wrong with that.

BTW - I mixed mine thouroghly. I also prepped very good. I scuffed up everything real well, and used acetone to clean it.

Re: A question for all those who have lined their tubs

Anything you can unscrew , remove it . Makes a cleaner looking job . Mines almost 2 years old and its still flawless except for one tiny spot under the throttle pedal ( where my heel rests while driving) put some extra under there when you do yours . For the screw holes or bigger holes , twirl up some masking tape and stuff it in those holes , remove before its hard . I washed my tub out with XYLENE , twice then scuffed really good with 140 grit paper then washed it again with the cleaner . Good Luck !

Re: A question for all those who have lined their tubs

I took everything out including the heater box. I rolled the tranny cover separately. Take the advice about the prep work. Take your time and do it right, it will pay in the long run. My Durabak has held up pretty well after a couple of years. I spilled some brake fuild in the back and it made it bubble up a little after a few days. Its a bit faded from the sun too.

It is NOT an aftermarket tub.
