Herculiner

Has anyone seen red herculiner in person? Thinking of it but not sure what it will look like or if I should go with Monstaliner. any insight for a newbie?

I just did the whole exterior of my YJ with Raptor Liner and would highly recommend it. I have Herculiner on the inside of the tub and hate it.

It took a year and a half to dry to a hard surface. Until then it felt like a pencil eraser. Firm, but you could break it off easily. And it holds dirt really well. Like flat paint. I would spray it off at the car wash with the high pressure soap and it would dry to still look dirty. Plus the chunks of rubber in there look like crap.

The Raptor Liner was rock hard within an hour, and the kit comes with a spray gun. It took me longer to roll the Herc than it did to spray the whole exterior of my YJ.

This is a picture of a sample of Monstaliner that they sent me on top of some Raptor liner that was on a piece of paper that I used to mask the headlights when I sprayed the Jeep.



As you can see the Monstaliner has a larger texture like Rhino Liner and the Raptor liner is more like Line X.

You can see pics of my Jeep sprayed with the Raptor liner if you click the built thread link in my sig.

Personally, I would go with Monsta. It's just an awesome product and you can speak with Eric directly here in the vendor display thread:

I even used it on my hardtop...it was hard as rocks within no time at all!

I've used the red herculiner on the exterior, just did this a few months ago. I went with it bc it was cheaper, easier for me to get and I had used the black herculiner with good results. I'll see if I can post pics this evening. I think the texture came put good and it dried hard. It's probably not going to be as hard as monstaliner or raptor but that's due to the rubber particles. I wouldn't say it's soft though

I have heard of concerns with fading but my Jeep is only driven on weekends and when it's not being drove it's in a garage, so I can't speak to that. It seems to me that you could use an armor all or mcguiars cleaner/Protestant to help against UV fading even though it already is supposed to have UV protection. It does catch dirt/dust but nothing that doesn't come off with a power washer.

Plus you never have to worry about a scratch or waxing, lol.

Oh yeah, I forgot about fading. Mine turned from black to dark gray in one summer of going topless.

You can buy a product from herc to prevent the fading, that's one of the reasons why it's cheaper.

I did the inside of my tub yesterday. Here are a couple of pics about a 1/2 hour after the second coat.

DEFINITELY go with Monstaliner... I had Herculiner in my old YJ, and just as some people had posted, it's absolute CRAP... breaks off real easily... can't get clean... rubber pieces are exactly that... PIECES...

I put Monstaliner in my new YJ and absolutely love it... it's hard as a rock, easily cleaned, hasn't faded one bit... and it rolled on nice and thick... you won't be disappointed...

ordered the montaliner, herculiner on the way back. Now any tips on taping up the drain plug holes and bolt holes?

Go to the hardware store and buy some disposable foam earplugs for the bold holes... they work great. Squeeze them and push em in almost all the way so they grip the threads and don't fall out easy. They may get stuck to the Herc-liner but they are so soft you can just pull them apart with needle nose pliers. I left my drain holes open when I did mine, and didn't have much trouble getting the plugs back in... there were one or two holes that I got too much Herc in, but I just cut it off with a razor knife.

The smaller screw holes, I didn't plug at all. I didn't have any trouble finding them after the liner was in, and one or two of them were stripped when I took them out, so the extra rubber tightened up the holes.

Just roll right over them. The Monsta is thick enough that it doesn't drip down in the holes or anything. Mine came out great!
