Just completed my Herculiner

For those that have not seen my thread on my 1980 Laredo ,I thought that I would post a few pictures for anybody thinking about doing the Herculiner process. Easier than I anticipated, I sprayed it on and followed it with the UV protectant. Glad that I did it, had it allready taped and ready to pull the trigger for two weeks now but was having 2nd thoughts . but as you can see it came out looking great ( at least to me ) LOL
PS, a 3/4 inch water hose , cut into 1 " pieces fits perfectly into the drain holes for spraying and 1/4 clear tubing 1" cut pieces for the other thread holes

Excellent job on the liner. Something else that works great on those small holes are earplugs. The little kind that you squish and expand in your ear. HF has boxes off them real cheap. I used them on my YJ when I lined the tub.

Looks fantastic! What kind of gun did you end up using? Siphon or gravity feed, and how big of a tip?

Thanks guys, I used an undercoating gun that's made to spray undercoating. Looking at previous pictures of posters that have applied Herculiner ,I thought it looked to rough,so the process I used was to do the base coat and for the 2bns coat I strained more than 1/2 of the rubber particals out of the paint. I seemed to get a better coat , plus it's a " Jeep bed " not a truck bed where I need that durable of a roughcoating, nothing is going to be thrown in or banged around inside of it. I'll give you a close picture of it.
I have done quite a bit of painting with POR 15 where the paint dries from humidity not from the sun drying it out, actually on a sunny day it will take forever to dry, best day is when the sun is in and it just rained out. I think the base paint for the Herculiner is the same as the Por15 so I'm not worried about durability with less texture. Some of the parts I painted with POR15 you can't even chip the coating with a hammer and beleive me I tried ,some on my friends were quite impressed with it not chipping.

Looks really good! I plan on using Durabak. I'm going to coat the inside and under the tube and inside of the fenders and all the body armor with the black textured. The rest of the Jeep is getting Durabak smooth in red, should make for a very durable finish so I won't have to worry about scratches and stuff from being out in the trails.

That looks great. Thx for the pics. I was considering just rolling it on from other threads i've read, being that i have no exp. with a paint sprayer. But i'm starting to hear that spraying would be more simple, faster as long as everything is taped off well.
thx again

Great job. Beautiful. I am going to do Durabak in the next couple of weeks. I was going to roll it on, but am now considering spraying it because of your result. Is the undercoating gun something that can be rented?

Looks great when new. Wait til it gets dirty. And stays that way, permanently. Herc is impossible to get clean. And it's abrasive as hell. Like coarse grit sandpaper. Pulls the skin right off your knuckles if you ever have the misfortune of rubbing them against it.
