Here you go...




Rhino lining or duplicolor will not crack. Just keep it moist with tire shine or armor-all UV protectant every few weeks.

Did you use some kind of primer for it with the duplicolor spray? Because I emailed duplicolor wanting to do this myself and they told me that the spray would not work on the plastic.

Its probably not recomended to work on that plastic so they don't want you to complain if it does work out properly.

I used the duplicolor stuff a few months ago and I love the look. I didn't use Herc on it because I didn't want something that thick, plus the ease of application of the spray on duplicolor. I took the bumper covers off and left the rest on so I could spray in between all the cladding and get rid of all the white lines.

While i was in upstate NY last here i hit the local walmart for the first time and bought the huge paint can of duplicolor. I think i walked out with the whole duplicolor range, the touch up pens, heat paint etc!
I used the bedliner on a friends old YJ to line the entire tub and i was impressed with the finish. It is alot better than rhinolinings, which has a bubbly look to it. You cant see it in my posted pictures but up close it is a mess.

Anyway that was my first time in a walmart.

dudes i was amazed...

Well I just noticed today that it has flaked off a little off the rear bumper. I've been moving this past week so the ZJ has been in charge of moving a lot of stuff and all the wear and tear on it has taken it's toll. It has also rubbed off of the front bumper in a few spots. I just think I didn't put it on thick enough. But no matter what the cause it's not really a big deal, I'll buy another $5 can and fix it and make it look brand new.

the guys over at LockitupOffroad seem to think the Duplicolor is complete trash.


Of course, this might be due to applying it to a different surface type, and that it's done to their tubs where it gets a high traffic of feet and such... while the cladding on a jeep is just being scratched occasionally, and deals with road dirt/salt...

I've got the Herculiner kit in the garage now, but haven't decided on leaving the cladding on or off. I'm not going to have front or rear plastic once I get Kevin's bumpers on, so was thinking of going entirely "nude" and rely on the thicker coating of the roll on stuff (I've done the tubs of my CJ and YJ with the thicker stuff, and really like it over the spray-on). Plus, then I could go around the wheel wells.

Thoughts?

I used the duplicolor on my blue WJ and it turned out pretty damn good if I do say so myself.

Theres some sort of bonder that those shops use b/c i called and they gave me the name i just forget now. Someone should call up to a local shop, get a quote, and ask what primer they use. If you put the primer on itll be a lot less likely to come off i would think. Cunnings jeep looks awesome w/ it painted that way im not sure mine will ever look right that way. Kinda have an interesting color but doesnt look right for an offroad rig.

Hey all,

I decided to bite the bullet today, and I applied Duplicolor Bedliner Spray to all the plastic on the Jeep. I think it came out amazing, as 2 hours of labor and 26 bucks in supplies beats paying Line-X 600 for everything.

I will have some pics up soon, but I highly reccomend doing this it looks amazing. I applied 3 coats in total and it seems pretty thick, though only time will tell. Worst case scenario just apply another can down the road. I did not remove any bumper covers, and it came out just fine. I taped off the fog lights and put newspaper in front of the radiator up front, and in the rear I just took my time taping off lighting, trunk gaskets, etc.

Word of advice, buy the widest blue tape possible and on the sides, tape down some newspaper on the door panels. As careful as you are, the reality is you will get some overspray and when you pull the tape off it is a very defined line. Some paint thinner and elbow grease worked just fine, but it would be easier to just tape it off completely at first.

Pics are coming soon!
