I'm happy with the Herculiner - my friend has Duraback in his and is equally as happy. Both cost about the same - in the neighborhood of $100. The Herculiner is available in many auto parts stores and elsewhere but the Duraback is (or at least was) an order item only.

I would say that you will get good results with both as long as you take your time with the prep work. I know one person that hurried through and it peeled almost immediately. The other friend took his time and it stayed rather nicely. If I had my choice though I would probably use hurculiner as it was the stuff that stuck.

I used Hurculiner in the tub of my CJ5. I would say for the prep work use a drill and scuff the paint and be sure to get any surface rust off. I've had mine on a year and no problems. I have cheap carpet over mine, but it makes the interior look real good.

I really like my Herculiner but if you are wanting colors get Durabak they are basically the same thing, except for the colors and some of the Durabak colors already have the UV in them
