Herculiner DIY kit?

i went out to Pep Boys and bought the herculiner DIY kit for 96 bucks. I will start my prep work on it this weekend. Do any of you have the herculiner, and how does it hold up to the heat adn abuse? How easy was it to put in? and how many coats were you able to put on with the one gallon that they give you in the kit?

Thanks for all the help...

I did mine this spring, I ended up using a little over a gallon, still have a bit left for touch up spots (bought a gallon and a quart for about $80). I coated everything atleast 3 times very heavily including the rollbar (enough to go under the padding a couple of inches). I am very happy with it, better than the carpet that as in there. When I did mine I took the whole interior out, including the rollbar. Only tip I have is to spend a bit on cheap bolts and plug the bolt holes so they don't fill up. When you are done you just unscrew them and the threads aren't messed up.

I just finished mine, love it. Used about 1/2 gallon for most of the tub, there were a few areas I didn't want herc'd.

One tip, make sure to do it all in one day so your rollers dont try out like mine did.

i did mine and love it. 2 full coats with some still left over (probably dried out now). it holds up very well. take your whole interior out, as previously stated. makes everything so much easier. i used a brush and sort of dabbed it on for a thicker look. it's really hard to clean, but it's a jeep, who cares. you should have looked around a little though, i just saw the other day that it was on sale at autozone for $79.

hell of a lot easier than carpet and really i don't think it's that bad. mist out the worst of the mud and sand with a hose and then take a brush to it. works everytime
