Rustoleum spray can bedliner

How is this stuff? Honestly, i'd like to get the Monstaliner but am trying to save money for LIFE right now, so don't have much to put into the Jeep fund. I wanna pull the carpet though because i've got some rust that's starting to get heavier than i'd like in the driver's side floorboard and the carpet is holding water. I sprayed a small piece of metal with it just to get a feel for the texture and it has only sat ~ 18 hours so far and I really like it...it seems to be somewhat hard to scrape and that was with NO prep to the metal. What i'm wondering about is long term durability. I won't be throwing a lot of stuff around that's heavy/sharp edges inside the Jeep so I just need something that will stay looking decent under normal use. I plan to get rubber floor mats for the floor in the front as well, so it shouldn't wear too much, I wouldn't think. Anybody have any input?

I used it on my bumpers that I made. Seems to hold up well but I don't think it would do good on the tub. It has no give to it and does seem to chip easily.

Save your money and get Monster or Herc. Much better and you won't be kicking yourself later for not doing it.

I too used it on my bumpers with great results, I also used it on the bed of my new truck in the hard to reach spaces with HERCULINER on the floor and fender wells. I am planning on doing the same with my tub- paint the sides/corners/behind roll bar with the spray, then do the floors and a light "texture matching" coat on all the flat surfaces I can reach with the roller.

Ahhhhh...screw it. I think i'm gonna go ahead and spring for the Herc..Advance Auto has it for $80 for the 1 gallon kit. I'll do the same as you, Destr0, and get the hard to reach places with the Rustoleum. I think it'd be great for that purpose...areas that you see but don't get much wear.

Works great the way I did it so far- and the bed of my truck gets USED. Even the Herc needs some touch up sometimes, but doing an 8' bed last time (in '06 when I got my last new truck) took a complete gallon and I stretched to get the tailgate covered. With the spray on then Herc I used about 2/3 of the gallon and have a better looking end result. Herc is so thick that getting into all the little corners and under the rails was a goopy mess.

Cheers!

if money is the issue get the monstaliner, free shipping right now, free chassis saver too and it's not as expensive as herc.

Yep..it's more than the Herc or else I would've definitely went with it. I think i'm gonna be really satisfied with the Herc. Got rain coming for the next few days so can't put it in though. I did take all my carpet out today though! PROGRESS!

You got me there, sorry. For some reason I was thinking the one gallon kit was 50, my apologies. I would have to agree then to go with Herc if money is the issue, especially if you can just cruise over to advance and pick it up. Good luck!

I suggest going with Monstaliner now so you don't end up buying Herc now and the Monstaliner later.

Herc is good for the inside of deliver vans and stuff but in your Jeep it's very exposed to the sun and will degrade quickly unless you topcoat it.

If you do go with the Herc make sure you mix the plastic pieces up well. It looks like **** when you have uneven coverage.

Don't worry, I plan on mixing it up with a drill. I think the Herc will be fine for me. I'm not gonna be throwing shovels into the back of my Jeep. Mostly just foot traffic and a cooler , fishing poles, guitars, etc.

I have to say Herc lasts pretty well in exposed situations. Herced the bed on my 06 2500 a couple weeks after I bought it and 4 years of much abuse (built a barn and hauled a ton of wood and stuff in the back of that truck!) and it still looked great. Yeah I had to touch up a few scrapes every once in a while after hauling a mower or something, but as far as UV dammage there was none I could tell- and my truck did not have any sort of topper or shade (other than when pulling the GN trailer).

:-) I really doubt my YJ interior will see as much abuse as the bed of my work truck so I think Herc will be fine. Drivers side floor pan is about the worst wear spot I will have and for that they make nice black rubber floor mats.

Cheers!

no, he is right, there is an issue with herc when exposed to uv rays. Just buy the additive and it isn't supposed to be an issue. If not it will fade. If fading doesn't bother you, then you should be fine.

I never put any addative in my Herc when I put it on and 4 years later still was black. The touched up areas would stick out as "more" black for a while but within a couple weeks you couldn't tell (although that was probably mostly from more abuse).
