umm.. someone posted a nice thing about what type of paint to use when i was considering refinishing my hard top (it's seen better days)... there is an actual paint but i wonder if high-gloss herculiner would look good as a hard top coating?

Use roll-on Rustolem on mine - it turned out okay. I did see a Blazer that was painted in Herculiner or something similiar (not just the top, but the whole outfit) and it looked pretty cool!
