What about Line-X? My buddy is a dealer and he offered to do it for a case of beer. Has anyone tried the Line-X?

Line-X is cool because it doesn't spray on hot like Rhino Liner. Lets you put the texture onto it that you want with the thickness that you want. Takes a day or two to dry. Problem is that they quoted meabout $600 to do it... the reason being that neither it nor Rhino liner are made to adhere to plastic. They said they way they'd do it would be to totally remove all cladding and put a coat on the entire piece so that it could sort of adhere to itself... kind of like a shell. Obviously more man hours and more spray to lay down.

Herculiner seems to be one of the better options out there unless you have boku $$ or, in the case above, know someone. I'd Line-X in a second if someone offered to do it for a case. Hell, I'd buy him two... of the good stuff.

What about duplicolor roll on I went in to a kragen/checkers whatever you want to call it. Looking to see the small spray cans of duplicolor vs the herc kit and they didnt have any spray duplicolor but had some stuff that said I could roll it on. Is this different or is this the same as the spray stuff

As stated previously, definetly go with the roll on stuff. The spray on stuff even with quality primer doesn't adhere to the cladding well at all. Believe me, I've been there - it required touch ups every month or so. Sun would bubble it, rain would take little pieces out, and when you knocked icicles off of the paint they would remove it.

Any roll on liner will suffice, I believe I used 3/4 gallon for the entire Heep.

How about removing the cladding . I was thinking about removing mine and then going with a tuff finish . I would imagine that there are holes for the mounts . What would be a good way to plug the holes for an even finish ?

When woody did his this way, he just put tape over top of the holes, and did a couple layers of liner on top of it. he says you can't even tell where the holes are.

Well I just got back from Autozone. 96 dollars later I've got the herculiner kit in black. Tomorrow I'll have to pick up some acetone and a drill mixer. One final question....Cladding on, or off? If off, the what should I do about those little rivet thingys that stick out of the body?

Charlie, no need for the drill mixer - save the 15 bucks and stir it up by hand, it will do just fine. Also, I left the cladding on but if I could do it again I'd probably take it off. As far as the plastic rivets, you could pop those out of the body to expose small holes. Tape over the holes as Woody did, throw a few layers on, and you won't know the difference.

Good luck!
Matt

Do not use the duplicolor stuff!!! It is definately not durable enough. I did the spray on inside a small trailer and cardboard boxes rubbed it off. I just did the roll on stuff on my sliders, 3 coats and after moving them around the backyard a few times there are huge flakes missing and chips - terrible products. I have the herc kit and will be doing the sliders over as well as where the cladding was and I'm thinking about the ARB as well. We'll see
