Herculiner questions

I've read a couple things all praising this herculiner stuff....anyone got any opinions on it?? Anyone have it in their Jeep?? Got any pictures??? Also on their website it says to sand the metal before applying....would it work if I just thoroughly cleaned the tub and then applied it??

Re: Herculiner questions

Yeah you need to sand it or it will not be as strong. It is really great stuff and it is a lot cheaper than rino lining. Which in my book sucks for how much it is. My friends work there and they say to go with herculiner because it is cheaper. But anyways herculiner is not as thick as rino but it will work just as good. Rino covers your body bolts all the way which is not really good if you need to get somethign off. Good luck...Matt

I enjoy working on friends four wheel drives but especially my own.

Pictures - Take a look at my personal page.
As the post said, Its all in the prep work. If you prep it good, the Stuff is great.

Re: Herculiner questions

i just applied the liner myself and i really recommend removing the rollbar also!
i didn't and it was a pain in the ass. also, wear long gloves, not the little medical gloves. i wore them and my arms still got trashed. infact i still have the stuff on my arm and my fingers. also, while i'm at it, wear long sleeves! start early cause it take 4-6hours! event if your a pro, removing bolts, prep, 2 coats, it takes a day! my.02

Re: Herculiner questions

I used it on my tub currently at the paint booth. I stripped the paint from the inside of tub, then sprayed POR 15 . While it was tacky I rolled the Hurculiner in. 2 coats I am pleased with results. I did take a tap to all the bolt holes to remove the excess material that got in . When I install the tub and all the accessories I will use anti seize so the bolts will be removeable if need arrises. The stuff is on sale a K-Mart every once in a while. Just watch the adds.

Yes, good stuff.

>Anyone have it in their Jeep??

Had Durabak (same stuff, just available in colors instead of only black) in the YJ tub that I just sold and will be putting it in my Scrambler.

>Got any pictures???

Yup. They're at http://jeepskate.4x4.org

>Also on their website it says to sand the metal before applying....would it work if I just thoroughly cleaned the tub and then applied it??

Not to come off like a jerk, but c'mon...the instructions say to sand it, what would make you think you could cheat and just clean the tub and still have it work properly? The prep is EVERYTHING and you must spend the time to do it right. Yeah, it's tedious, but the results are worth it.

Re: Herculiner questions

I've heard great things about the herculiner product line, but if you want to keep the jeep for awhile, and want something to truly last the life of your jeep, another option in rhino linning, expensive yes, but the quality cannot be surpassed.
(Just my humble opinion from experience)

breaker one, breaker one, I may be crazy but I ain't dumb, Crazy Cooter comminatcha!!

Re: Herculiner questions

I intend to do the herculiner next summer [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img] . Can I use this for under the body as well? What should I use for undercoating? [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/cool.gif[/img]
