Thanks y'all for the help. Hopefully I will get the tub back on her tomorrow evening, then I can prep the inside of the tub and get it sprayed. Can't wait to get this thing on the road again.

I do have a question. I had some small rust holes in groups, I repaired these by applying patches from beneath with KBS coatings applied to all surfaces and held on with that special sheetmetal glue that body shops use. These things are on there!!!! This creates a slight dip from the inside the thickness of the floorboard material, about 1/16" of a inch. Is this bedliner thick enough to smooth these areas out or should I use bondo, or fiberglass or .....? to make a flush surface before applying the liner material. Thanks for the help.

Obviously prices have gone up, and since I haven't bought any since last fall I'm sure $103 is stretching it.

As for filling your low spots, I would suggest using fiberglass resin. You can use high dollar/quality stuff, but the Bondo brand at Walmart works. It's not going to fall off until your floor rusts completely out. Persoanlly I would not you plastic body filler. When moister crepes in, it wil start to pop put. Goos luck

That looks excellent! I am patching up my used and abused glass body right now and was looking at a kit for about 60 bucks thats supposed to be enough for a truck bed but it's applied with a roller. I don't recall the brand but has anyone tried it and does it look as sharp as this?

Strip the interioir parts that cannot be covered.
Wash with soapy water
Use a grease/wax/silicone remover on parts to be covered.
Sand with 100 grit dry paper
Use a grease/wax/silicone remover on parts to be covered.
Mask

When your done, you'll be a pro
What kind of grease/wax/silicone remover did you use?

How does this stuff hold up to the sun?

I have Rhino lining in my truck bed which stays covered the majority of the time and it is faded bad!

I don't plan to run a top on my CJ, so therefore concerned that it will fade bad.

Any insight would be great.

Not sure about the u pol or the other products but with the Herculiner it is a must to spray the UV protect ant within 24 hours. I bought 4 qts of the Herculiner UV thinking it would really soak it up but ended up only using one for the interior and that was putting down 3 coats.

I applied a Herculiner last weekend, since I don't have a compressor, a roll-in liner was the path for me and Herculiner seems to have the best rep amongst roll-ins. What I thought would be a 2-day job ended up being a 3-day job because of seized bolts and a lot more rust than I was expecting, especially under the roll bar forward mounts.

Regardless of if you go roll-on or spray-on, take your time and prep the tub correctlly. With my tub, I wire brushed (using a drill and a wire brush) all the rust off I could, then degreased using a biodegradable degreaser. From there, I used the POR15 "Metal Ready" phosphoric acid rust remover. After I hosed that off and let the tub dry, I applied a generous coating of POR15 to all the rusted areas. Once the POR15 dried, I roughed up the entire tub with the scotchbrite pad that comes in the Herculiner kit then wiped the tub down with acetone. I masked everywhere I didn't want the liner to go. It's a great idea to use those foam earplugs to protect all the bolt holes in the tub. I cut small pieces of masking tape, which worked, but were time consuming to cut and remove, wish I had used the foam plugs. Once you're done with the masking, you're ready to apply the liner. The Herculiner kit comes with a 2-in paintbrush to use in the corners and other places where the roller won't reach. Since you're supposed to 'dab' the liner on (i.e. don't brush it on), I think it would work better if you used one of those short round brushes they use for stenciling or applying stucco.

I found I used the brush quite a bit more than what the instructions suggested...which, I think, helped add uniformity to the coating.

Here's a pic after I had the first coat applied.


Here's what the Jeep looks like after the 2nd coat was dry and I got the seats/roll bar/console back in:




The second coat really added some depth to the liner. The Herculiner also did a great job of filling in the rough spots where the rust had eaten into the sheet metal under the roll bar's forward attach points and the floor pans. Even with a generous second coat, I still have about an 1/8th of a gallon left in the can.

So far, I've been really happy with the Herculiner, we'll see how well it holds up. I did notice the black color makes the interior seem smaller/more cozy than when it was blue body paint and black seats. Strange how colors can affect our perceptions!

The brand doesn't really matter. You can go to your local auto paint store and buy a gallon. It's cost you under $20. So many uses. I never run out but I paint alot so it's a staple.

I have a Rhino in my (oops wifes truck) that is a 2001 bought in Sept 2000. It still looks pretty good and not faded. At the time spray in bedliners wasn't a competitive market like it is today so it cost just under $500. As for it fading you can look at it like this, spray it every third year to freshen up. So after about ten years you've got about $300 in it. Yea I'm sure it would get thick but you get the idea.

Glad it turned out, and it looks great. Can you please let everyone know how truly easy it was to perform the whole process. There are a lot of people who don't think they should take a task like this on.

The hardest part is getting it ready to spray. Spraying is a snooze.
