Tub liner

I've been wanting to pull out the stock carpet in my 97 Wrangler and replace it with a lining of some sort...either Rhino or Herculiner...

Any thoughts?

Rhino you'd have to pay for them to spray it on and could be costly. All depends on if you want to do it or yourself or have a professional do it. I have heard good things about Herculiner and it comes with everything you should need. Sure there are others on here that have more input. Good Luck! BTW: WE LIKE PICTURES!!!

I did my tub in herculiner, along with some of my armor. It gets the job done and is easily touched up if need be. Check out my build thread in my sig for pics of prep and painting.

I did Herculiner and and very happy with it.

Its took 3 days. Gutting the inside, prepping and cleaning and got first coat on. let sit until next morning added second coat. let sit again and then re assembled the third day.

If i was thinking ahead i would have painted the out side edges (getting rattle can paint job) before lining. I like the look of the edges that the roller left. sanding the edges to paint now. I think i will need to touch of the edges with a small can of liner.

I found the using wire wheels to scuff of the paint makes the process a lot faster.

Stuff ear plugs in the holes you don't want filled/coated..i did not do this and have a few drip spots on the ground below.

I would also get a can of the spray on liner to get the places the brush/roller cant get to.

prep and patience works best for these types of liners. I have hurculiner and 3 coats really gets the job done.
