I did the Herculiner myself and love it. It was pretty easy to do, just required alot of prep time. Are you wanting to DIY or take it to a shop? I used the roll on method with mine and it looks just as good as any of the spray on jobs that I have seen. I bought the Herc kit that came with a brush to dab in the corners, 2 rollers and 1 gallon of Herc. The price was around $80 on sale and I didn't use more than 1/2 to 3/4 of the gallon, so there is plenty left for touchups...

Herculiner. $95 do it yourself job. I love mine. By the way, throw the rollers away and use a brush to dab it on. It comes out much better.

I agree. I ended up using the brush to dab it on a whole lot more than I thought I would. You also have to remember to stir this stuff often. If you don't, then the little rubber particles will not stay suspended in the liner, and you will get smooth spots (which is why you dab with the brush and not put it on like paint). That looks really bad in my opinion when everything thing else around it is textured.

Heres the pics from when I did mine a few weeks ago. I used the herculiner but i got an underlining gun and sprayed mine in. I love it. Its super durable and I just sprayed i out with the hose and called it good.


side view of up and over, decieded this would protect for when people go over the side to get in and help insulate the hardtop.

This one is driver's side tub. There's some shiny spots but its because I just sprayed it out.

If you're still considering LINE-X and Rhino, consider this:

Rhino: 100% polyurethane, tear strength 145 psi, temp tolerance 175 degrees, uses a cold/low pressure application system, rather soft at Shore A 92.5, gels in 30 to 45 seconds, dries in 45 minutes, cures in 24 hours.

LINE-X: Polyurethane/polyurea blend, tear strength 304 pli, temp tolerance 250 degrees, uses a heat/high pressure application system (for better adhesion and a more uniform looking final texture), harder at Shore D 45, dries in 4 seconds, cures in 24 hours. If you get LINE-X Xtra, it's guaranteed not to fade or lose its gloss.

wow, thanks alot for all that information. i think ill go with the herculiner and spend that extra $100's elsewhere. so its a moderate job to apply it by yourself? maybe a day or two of prep and a half a day of coating?

i spent 150 total... because i sprayed pretty thick and had to buy an extra quart for touch ups. all in all I spent about a day and a half on it. The prep was the worst part because you have to strip the tub, rub it down and ruff up the areas you want to spray and then finally wipe it with this horrible stuff called zylol and then tape everything you don't want splatter on off.

side note: wear pants and long sleeves and chemical gloves. I'm pretty sure I've still got some of this stuff on me somewhere. jk but it does take about a week to get it off your skin.

This is no joke at all. I though I could do it without getting any on myself, what a stupid thought. That stuff will stick to you like nothing you have ever seen before. It took about a week to finally get all of it off my hands. So do yourself a favor and wear some good gloves.
