    Default Hurculiner?

    So I went ahead and ordered the hurculiner kit from Quadratec...haven't heard anything bad on it. So we will see how it works! Any comments on how good/bad it is?

    Works great...do all of your prep. Search Herculiner for several threads that have discussed it previously.

    Let me know how the install goes. I am considering doing this to my Jeep. Has anyone done this? If so, how do you like it?

    Default Opinions...

    There seem to be so many varied opinions on DIY bed liners...My personal front runner I'm interested in trying is Raptor. I've read several good things about it and it seems like even the guys at MVC are using it on a build and their work is TOP NOTCH!
    Up to now I have always used the Duplicolor rattle can liner for all areas not high traffic (mostly for sound and rust prevention/scratch resistance) or had Line-X do the tub (very costly but good stuff)
    Just my humble opinion...

    Take everything you can out as well as prep and be patient. I love how mine turned out.

    I used the HERC on my CJ tub, the bottom and inside, as well as my flat fenders.

    PREP, PREP,PREP!!! It turns out great, and sticks to everything! But prep is key.

    Wear clothes you don't care about, and use gloves!

    I used some left over HERC on a 3pound hammer handle Great for a non-slip grip!

    The key step is your prep work.
    The bed liner will turn out great and last a long time if you prep your tub properly. I think I've got a write up on here some where when I did mine. Mine's about 2 years old now and still looks great.

    And it takes paint well, both 'Rattle Can' and professional spray paint.

    I didn't prep my fenders well enough (they were an afterthought, didn't realize I'd have enough left over) and it shows. Where I didn't prep well enough, the HERC is peeling.

    No problems what so ever on the tub, where I prepped good.

    Have over 4 years on the bottom of the tub so far. Still holding up great!

    I got one of those paint mixers that go on a drill, it is about 18 inches long and has a sort of plastic blender on the end. It worked great to make sure the herc was mixed evenly.

    Prep is the key. It sucks, but don't rush it. Tape up the holes or stick those little yellow foam earplugs in there from the PAX terminal Make sure you don't cut corners, it is a bitch to go back and fix.

    Also, wear eyepro. I knew a guy that had just one more little bit to coat that he saw right after taking off his eyepro. Somehow, he got a drop in his eye and he had to go to the ER to get that stuff removed. It hardens pretty fast, and it is not selective.

    should you have a hootus, which I highly doubt (or hope you don't), treat herculiner as you would hot sauce from extremely hot chicken wings. Don't touch nothin you don't want burnin.

    I have had mine herc lined and love it had it done 3 years ago and still just as solid as the week it was done.. Like everyone says PREP WORK will make or break the job and TAKE EVERYTHING OUT is right on spot.. I will never have carpet in a one of my jeeps again.. Use alot of rubbing alcohol on the tub will help pull all the dirt out and grease.
