Re: Herculiner or durabak

In two days I will be doing my whole Sammy in Durabak inside and out. Durabak has tons of colors including a dark hunter green. Herculiner only comes in black. Mine is being painted in grey (same as original color) with a black floor(getting ride of the carpet).

The people at durabak were very helpfull and the cost is 100 for black 120 for colors by 4 or more gallons and you get 10 off a gallon. I bought 4 gallons 3 grey 1 black. I have a hardtop and figure if I have left over it's better then not having enough.

Re: Herculiner or durabak

I believe Durabak changed their formula shortly after I did my bed. But if they didnt... expect severe fading, cracking and peeling. I was very impressed with the stuff until it got to be about 6 months old. It changed from a nice red with black bits, to orange. Then almost everything would knock a piece off. This was about 2-3 years ago. Now it peels off with a finger nail, in pieces about the size of a quarter or dollar bill sometimes. I did the prep work, and spent about a 1/2 day doing it. The stuff seems to do good, if not exposed to direct sunlight much. A friends interior of his cruiser is holding up well. This was in a toy PU bed, and its just not doing anything anymore. Sorry for the bad report, but I hate to see someone else watch hard work go to waste.
