Pics from my bedlining project

I found a gallon kit of Herculiner for $100 at the parts store. Also grabbed two bottles of undercoating for the areas I couldn't brush on. Everything came out fine except for my seat belt receiver. Instead of drilling the bolt out, I just taped around it.

It was fun to drive to the car wash without a tail gate, doors, etc.

For my second coat, I just poured the rest of the can onto the high traffic areas then spread it out. The drivers and passenger floorboards may be over a quarter inch thick.

Getting that nasty carpet out and making the floor look good has motivated me to clean up the rest of the interior. Next I will need to paint the seat brackets and re cover the seats. (That speaker cable is now run through conduit)

Total cost was $120. It looks as good as friend's $400 jobs and will pay off in the future by preserving the metal.

Nice, that is on my to-do list. I'm just waiting on the weather to cooperate long enough to get it done. I don't have the luxury of a garage and this weather is crazy, 70 and sunny one day, 34 and snow flurries the next.

Ha ha! It was 80 when I put the liner on, and it was below freezing the next morning when I put it back together.

I plan on doing this real soon as I am down awaiting/looking for a transmission to swap out. If I read your post correctly, you just "brushed" the Herculiner on?? Was there any special tools or anything you used to get it on evenly and thickly??

Thanks!!

The kit came with a roller. There weren't any issues getting it to be thick. There are some inconsistent spots in the nooks where the roller wouldn't fit. I hit those areas first with spray on undercoating first so it would be less noticeable, but you can still tell.

You could tell I rolled this on if you really looked closely, but only if you were looking for it.

Mine is coming next week, but I am doing Rhino Lining for it, since we do not have Herculiner on the regular market...

Yes. Each seat has four bolts and the console is currently not being held in with screws.
(the pressure from the two seats squeezes it tight enough)
