is it possible to paint over the herculiner? the reason i ask is because i've seen people say it fades and i was planning on doing this to my jeep. although since the interior of mine is gray maybe if i do it black and it fades it won't look so bad.
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.

Translated to English for you:
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
