i did mine with the one gallon kit. the most time will be consumed with prep work. it all depends on how thick you want the coverage to be. i only did one coat, but i wish i had gone ahead and done two. the kit comes with a brush and a couple of rollers as well as a scuff pad.

This is from a very old thread posted on JU.
Be careful with the herculiner!
Someone decided to herculine the inside of the tub of there Jeep. Some time during the process they applied herculiner to a body part that is rather sensitive. How they did this I have no idea. Why they then posted to a forum

Title of the thread was " I got Herculiner on my hootus" I will leave it to your imagination what body part that is.

Bottom line make sure your body parts are covered

the one gallon kit is made for a good coat on a 6' truck bed. i think you should be fine with two coats on your tub. if it isn't enough, the one quart sizes aren't too expensive.

I did a K5 blazer tub, its bumpers, front wheel wells, and gas tank skid plate with one gallon. I only did one coat, but I still had a little bit left after all of that. One gallon should be plenty for you.

Hint: don't mix up the whole thing at one time. I did a YJ over a weekend, actually friday afternoon start, sat and sun finish. Mixed it up half at a time and used a glad snap closed container to keep the mixed stuff in. Two coats on sat, morn & noon and two more on sunday morn & noon. Put the interior back in sun evening. Still had quite a bit left over as I remember, did it 3 years ago. Did have to spend time reaming out the drain plug holes so the plugs would go back in the holes.
Prep work is key, pick up a gallon of prep-sol or pre-painting thinner and use that after roughing up the area. Also move your wiring before you start, just makes life easier while working.
