Has anybody ever done or concidered Herculining an outside of a jeep,and never having to worry about scratching it ever again while off-roading, I saw a jeep hood that was done and it sure looked good,sure would be an easy touch-up if it did get scratched up whiile out in the woods.
Any veiws on this?
So far it's held up very well, two years plus. My CJ is a sun sitting/all weather, travel baby. It's been from the mountains (two weeks ago) through the salt spray from the roads, to the beach and the salt air.....so far so good.
I would recommend Durabak & KBS coatings to anyone.

Durabak and Herculiner both fade. No matter how much it says it has UV Blocker. I'm sure most of you know this just by looking at the inside of your tub (for those of you who have used it). I have used both, and a little Tire Foam brightens it right up! You might get some crazy looks at your local car wash standing there spraying your entire Jeep with Tire Foam, but it does work! LOL!
Just my 2 cents!

I used to spray bed liners. Used SEM bed liner. It can be made to match any color by adding paint to the tintable. I thought about spraying the outside of a CJ7 I had at the time. I never got around to it. I did spray several Jeep interiors. It looks good and hold up well. The interiors I sprayed were all black. I'll probably spray my interior someday.
I have thought about it too. I know a guy who owns a Line-X company and he said 900 to paint my jeep for me any color. He can even mix in metallic! He said he did one jeep like that and it came out sweet. I would think that it would be easy to clean if you use a pressure washer. However, I did the inside of my jeep and would never do it again. Not the easiest to clean. Water doesn't run out so the puddles turn to water stains once it does dry up. I like the Camo look on the jeep above. I have seen trucks with black and flat green. The all flat green I thought looked great. I'm planning on doing an orange color with a little blue or gray metallic. The biggest down fall is prep. Takes a lot of time if you want it to turn out good. If you pay someone like I will it can cost you which is why I plan to prep my own.
