NO GOOD. I bought some for my m416 trailer and it was worthless. Using it one time to move a washer/dryer peeled a bunch off. I had wire wheeled to the metal surface, prepped as instructed too. Now I will have ot wire wheel that junk off before doing Herculiner.

I've had mine on for 4 years, peeling pretty good. It's not too bad if you touch it up every year or so, then it looks nice, but it doesn't last. I applied mine over Hammerite.

It's not too bad, but not near as good as the herculiner. The serface has to be really clean and you have to sand everything to rough it up or it won't stick. The duplicolor also chips off a lot easier. It'll work, but go with the Herculiner if you can afford it.

Re: Dupli Color Any good???

Dupli-Color is SH!T! Stay away...I worked in an auto parts store for about a year....we sold one can. It came back the next day, almost empty and the customer was displeased. Needless to say, i wouldn't touch it. Here's an idea...Go talk to your local Rhino Linings or Line-X dealer. This time of year, business usually slows down for them, and they may be willing to do it for you for a very reasonable cost. I believe they both have lifetime warranties, too. It can't hurt to go talk to the man, you may be surprised!

I know where they sell duplicolor, but what about herculiner...where is it sold? And is there any value to the kits, or should I just by a little roller and some rubber gloves?

Moneyless, Will weld for jeep accessories.

I don't know about the dupli color but my Herculiner is great. It was pretty easy just took a little while to prep. And its alot cheaper than the Line-X. Taping and preping it good will make it look great.
