Re: Prepping for Herculiner do not like what I fou

permatex makes what i think is the best rust converter, also bullfrog makes a great one, heck they have a new line of rust inhibitors that are awesome, I would do the underside of the tub as well, thats the rust that will ruin the tub very fast!!!! Ive seen guys do their whole truck box exept for the underside, man is that foolish here in MN the DOT uses salt like they spend our tax money........

Re: Prepping for Herculiner do not like what I fou

I am going to ask my Dad what he has has been using on his 37 Olds 2 door sedan. I will let you all know what I decide on using. Thanks for the opinions.

I am always open for more usggestions as well.

I have already accepted the fact that I will not get the Herc layed down this weekend. I am going to have to wait til next weekend to make sure I have enough time to lay it down, get 2 coats and get the tape up. The Jeep has been down for so long what is another week?

Thanks guys.

Re: Prepping for Herculiner do not like what I found

herculiner, well it goes on really thin, if you are really interested in longevity, go get the tub sprayed, i would do the underside first, just please do not use DURABAK or any other spray on can liner, Ive tried them all they all suck...
Good luck

a-men on DURABAK [img]images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img], i used it in my ranger's bed and it was faded, discolored, and peeling off within a year. waste of money.

I don't know how bad your rust was, but I would think the hercliner would be good enough by itself. I think it sticks better to bear metal anyhow (not sure).... do you really need to prep the surface with anything at all?

Re: Prepping for Herculiner do not like what I found

see, when i first heard about it i called one of their tech guys and he told me how it was recycled rubber and exactly the same as any of the competing products. oh well, it was only a hundred bucks. i've paid more and gotten less.

Re: Prepping for Herculiner do not like what I fou

Lirpasue and I just used a wire wheel on a drill motor to rough up the interior of her CJ5 and then coverered all the surface rust with Navel Jelly and cleaned it up good with soap and water. Then we used acetone on everything, let it dry and spread on the Herculiner. We didn't prime it or anything else. It looks great and has lasted very well, even though it's only been 6 months.

Re: Prepping for Herculiner do not like what I fou

Re: Above posts bagging on DURABAK, Durabak and Herculiner are exactlty the same product. Durabak does not come in a spray can, maybe you are thinking of Dupli-color bed liner? It's junk, Durabak is an extremely good product if prepped and applied properly, as is Herculiner.

Re: Prepping for Herculiner do not like what I fou

no way dude. its durabak im trashing. i prepped extensively and applied as directed. this was abut 4 years ago, maybe it has changed. also maybe it was not formulated for harsh NC summers.
