Herculiner project

So my Dad and I are going to roll the inside of my Jeep with a Herculiner kit I bought at Advanced Auto Parts. Any tips and tricks or do's and don'ts? We wanna get this right and I'll upload pictures when it's complete.

Prep work is priority! Get every inch roughed up and cleaned very well. If you don't you'll regret it later.

Ventilation is a must. Trust me on this!

Read the can, specifically the "clean-up" part. If the paint drips where you don't want it, you'll be glad you already knew how to clean it up.

Have fun! (If you have a LOT of fun, you can do mine next)

X2 on this. Good prep is a must! I had a buddy do this and did a half job on the prep and is now having issues. Take your time to make sure you get all the little cracks/crevices that are a pain in the a$$ to get to.
