Spray in bedliner in Jeep

Went down to local buisness to get my fiberglass Jeep Rhino-lined before I paint it in a couple weeks and they refused to as it is to too much trouble... Even though I removed everything to make easier including roll bar. SO I have decided to tackle myself. My question is has anyone done their own and what is the best product to use? Was figuring on spraying in instead of roll on but am open to suggestions. Found some good deals on ebay on different kits around $150. Bottom line is I only want to do it once. I am mechanically inclined and my wife is my painter so I figure we can handle the job easy enough just looking for best bang for the buck. Also how much should I buy for ample coverage.Thanks in advance for any help!!

go to a hardware store and buy a slutzt gun (like 20$)...
you need a decent air compressor
buy some rhino lining or whatever brand you please
mask off and poly anything you dont want the liner on...
Spray away.... really easy

Lots of folks on here have used Herculiner. I haven't got that far in my project yet but Ive heard good things about it. I used to use the stuff you get at walmart but it doesnt hold up very well to solvents and the like.

Herculiner on ebay = $65
Acetone, scuff pads, safety gloves at Lowes = $15
One day of personal labor removing interior parts, taping off the interior, scuffing the existing paint, and rolling on the Herculine = $FREEEEE. (I get free labor from a little devise at my house called kid)

Having the personal satisfaction that it was done right = PRICELESS!!!

Can't say enough about my $80 bed liner that is has good as a $400 professional job. I am really pleased with it.

I can't believe they turned you away because it was too much work..

Prep work is the key with the Herc.. scuff everything well and wipe down with Xylol (Xylene). Mix the Herc with a drill mixer (propeller blade) so the rubber granules are well suspended. I shoot mine with a Harbor Freight "Textured" Spray Gun..

I sprayed mine with U-Pol Raptor this past weekend. If my wife will ever bring our camera home from work I will take pictures and post them. I am EXTREMELY pleased with the outcome! I ran out at the end but it was my own stupid fault. I sprayed my tailgate and roll bar also and unfortunately started with them. I should have started with the tub. When I realized I was about to run out I sprayed everywhere except directly under my seats and under the console. I finished those parts up with Herc that I ran to the store to buy. Luckily the way I did it, you wouldn't ever be able to tell it was different unless you removed the seats/console. I like the look and texture of U-Pol better than the Herc. As for durability...we'll see on down the road. One gallon (4 liters) would be plenty to spray the entire tub.

Now that I've sprayed, I don't think I would ever consider rolling or brushing it on. Spraying is SO easy. Just be sure you have a good air compressor that can hold a steady 45-50psi. I used a 25 gallon Craftsman, it did fine. As mentioned in previous posts and all other posts, preparation is key. I actually took two days to make sure I did it right.

I bought my U-Pol kit from TPtools.com. They had 4 liters and the gun for $109 with shipping. They are in OH so it shouldn't take long for you to get it in WV. It took 4 days to get to Little Rock, AR.

GOOD LUCK!!! (and if your camera is handy when you're done, post pictures)

I herculined my interior, best thing I've ever done. I actually rolled it on, worked like a charm. Cost me $100 for the herculiner, and like $4 for acetone. The rest was all labor.

I actually decided to do my rollbar after seeing yours Mike. Not really going to do much for protection I figure, but it looks GREAT!!
