really ure better off just keeping the herc. if it didnt come out ok then just keep applying it till its thick. and ur really gonna have to break ure *** to get it off. but id say a really tough wire wheel is ure best bet.
Thanks karlo.......Actually guys, the herc came out great. I just don't like how rough it is. I have been seeing the raptor and the smoother liners and thought that would be more my bag. I don't know if I am going to actually remove it now.
Aircraft stripper has to be one of the nastiest chemicals known to man.

If you do this be carefull aircraft striper is nasty stuff if you get on you it burns like h@ll and the fumes are bad also so do it in the open air. If this stuff touches the paint on your jeep the paint will be gone it will also melt the sole of your shoes and burn holes in your clothing. But it does work
I used Xyl to get if off a garage floor, just pour it and let it sit, use about a quart per 5 square feet, then get a paint scraper, peel it off, then sand the rest down. Make sure you do it out side, and have a ventlator

I know it says on the herculiner instructions not to use anything other than xylene or acetone with the paint. I imagine some paint stripper should do the trick, and its more readily available than aircraft stripper I'd imagine.

Buddy of mine recently used the herculiner in his truck bed,2 months later it was all scratched up,it didn't hold up well at all to sliding things in and out of the bed .
We used the Aircraft Stripper carefully,put it on with a brush in a cool dry area under a tree,then put saran wrap over it and let sit for about a 1/2 hour then peeled it up with a putty knife,re-applied the stripper where needed.
The saran wrap keeps it from drying out so quick and works longer,it dries up pretty quick on a hot day and won't penetrate much.
You have to be real carefull not to get the stripper anywhere you don't want paint stripped,that's why we used paint brushes and carefully put it on then let sit for a long time to do it's work and removed the saran wrap and let sit for a few minutes more so it dryed up a bit and wouldn't slop around when scraping with a putty knife.
Aircraft Stripper is nuetrulised with water,just wash it down with soapy water afterwards and then sand and prime to keep the bare metal from flash rusting.
