Aww, nuts. Herculiner impulse buy

Was browsing the net before and came across a good deal on Herculiner. Gallon kit and an additional quart for about $130 and free shipping. Great! Sign me up. So I place the order and just now I realized that I ordered black instead of the grey I really wanted. I plan on coating the entire inside of the tub, (it's fiberglass, so the all the walls, rear wheel tubs and whole floor need to be covered too.) Question is, Is the black going to soak up too much sunlight and turn the Jeep into a mobile broiler? I plan on plenty of top down wheeling and would hate to have it that hot.

Re: Aww, nuts. Herculiner impulse buy

hmm... not that we get too much sun up here in Tacoma, but mine has been fine. It even helped some of the heat that used to build up in the floor pans from the fenderwell exit exhaust. I love it, but could be a different story if I were in Arizona!

By the way, prep is by far the most important thing you can do when you laying it down.

Re: Aww, nuts. Herculiner impulse buy

Mine's hot. Real hot. Like get-these-damn-doors-off-before-my-feet-burn hot. Mine is coming mostly from the exhaust I think, but it does seem much warmer than last year when I didn't have the Herc. Course, I also redid the exhaust and moved the cat under the skidplate, so maybe that is contributing also. Should be nice in the winter; no blazer motor heater upgrade for me.

Re: Aww, nuts. Herculiner impulse buy

My black rhinolined tub gets hot in the sun, but so far I've been able to stand it. I thought Hurculiner only comes in black.

I'm on here so much, I have carpal tunnel reader syndrone.

Im an Phoenix Arizona Jeeper and have not noticed that it was any hotter with the black hurc. In fact it was actually cooler to the touch than bare metal. I would totally recommend it. By the way jeep is black on black

Re: Aww, nuts. Herculiner impulse buy

Too bad there's no Sam's Club in my neck of the woods. That deal sure blows mine outta the water.

Thanks for all the replies, I think I'm going to try to cancel the order and reorder it in grey. (It does come in grey, I've seen it.)
