Check the Herculiner website. They make a product that is meant to go over the Herculiner as a sort of top coat. It has stuff in it to prevent UV damage.

As said before, the amount of prep you put into it will dictate the outcome.

Line X is a great product no doubt. The difference is that Line X can easily run over $400 while Herculiner is usually under $100. It takes more elbow grease but to some its worth the savings.

did you dip your brush and roller straight into the gallon or did you use a pan?

I used a pan for the roller and dipped the brush straight into the gallon bucket. Use a disposable pan because you will never get it out.

Make sure you are constantly stirring it too!

question. I will be doint mine this weekend.

Previous owner had rubber matting in. In the back they have drilled 8 holes...these were used to screw the front and back floor piece together...

If I just apply the herc over it should it be okay? I was thinking that I should maybe spray por15 so it runs in to the holes...

any ideas?

I would imagine that as long as there is no rust currently in the screw hole the Herculiner would be fine. Just make sure and dab a bit along the exposed metal edges to cover it up.

I did this yesterday, and it turned out really nice. It's a same I wasn't part of this forum at the time, as I had to figure this out by myself. It wasn't very hard though. The hardest part was the prep work, which is also the most important part.

i have been prepping mine for the past few days, slowly getting it ready for herc and i have a question i rough it up with the pad so there is no more shiny left on the tub but then when i wipe it with acetone it basically goes back to what it looked like before i roughed it up does that mean i need to do a better job roughing it up or is that normal

You want just want a rough surface for the stuff to bond to. It doesn't need to be gouged or anything, just not perfect shiny clean.
