Tub Liner questions

I want to use Herculiner or something like that for my tub, but there's the rust monster lurking. Should I sand the tub down, put some POR-15 on, and then the liner?

What would/have ya'll done?

Thanks for the replies!

Re: Tub Liner questions

I would try to make it all go away. There was a post the other day about this. The Poster painted it and Hurced it and the rot ate it's way through I believe.

Good Luck!

Re: Tub Liner questions

The rust under the liner is a problem. Jaguar used it on the front ends of certain cars in the 60s and you cant find a rust free front end for them. What happens is moisture gets in between the liner and the metal. Then it cant go anywhere and just sits there and then the rust starts. If you really want the liner I would sandblast the tub first then prime and paint, then the liner. But, it will rust again and you wont no it till it is gone. I personally just brush some rustolem on the floor and wear your feet wear the paint off. I just brush some more on once and a while. Good luck

Re: Tub Liner questions

Don't be afraid to use the herculiner. It was my bad prep that made everything rot out. Sand the rust, get the metal as clean as you can. Then use the POR on it. I used it on some parts of my tub and it is really good. Good prep is the difference of any good paint job or rubberliner job. Sandblasting is a great option to get rid of the rust.

Re: Tub Liner questions

Lets face it Jeeps rust ...if not from one side then from the other...Its not a matter of if, its a matter of when...Carpeting is one of the biggest rust magnets of all time but people still put it in there .you may as well put sandpaper on the floor and throw in buckets of water.When I picked up the carpeting in my livingroom there was about a gallon of sand under it.
I think I will start saving for an aluminum body.that looks like the way to go.

Re: Tub Liner questions

I Herculined my tub about a year ago and threw some rubber floor mats down in the front. The other day I noticed alot of rust accumulation under the pads and thought for sure the rust monster was back. Really ticked my off because I spent three days on prep work alone. I cut some of the liner away and there was nothing but clean shiny metal underneath. Apparently, water running through my windshield etc. had brought some rust with it and settled on the floor boards. The stuff works great with a good prep job. I had welded all the drain holes shut before I lined it and there had been pools of water down there for days at a time. No rust in sight.
