Herculiner is friggin awesome

If you have been considering doing your interior with rhinoliner ($500-600 professionally done) or Herculiner ($70 DIY) it is money well spent. 4 hours and less than a hundred bucks could leave you with a durable and easy to maintain interior. And when they say to wear gloves in bold print on the directions I suggest you do so. the pic is after 10 or so rounds with hand pumice. (Sharpie + Epoxy = H.L.)

Skin - 5 minutes. Metal... I'll know in the morning. Box says ready for light duty in 10-12 hours. I laid it down thick to get a good and rough coat so maybe longer. Either way its a full day project. Looks great though. Cant wait to put the sucker back together in the morning.

Roll on. Coverage wasn't a problem. I put down 2 thick coats and still have leftovers.

Does it provide noticeably better sound insulation than just running with bare metal?

it is slightly more muffled, but not much. jeeps are not that quite to begin with, so the noise doesn't bother me.

Xylol will help get it off your hands. It's what they recommend on the can and it works.

I have done truck beds and quad trailers with herculiner and would recommend it.

is it a big process to get the carpets & seats / etc out of the Jeep? would you put he carpets back in it after and use the herculiner as a prpotective coating or does it take the place of the carpet?

It does cut down on the heat of the trans tunnel. Seats come out easy. Carpet is just held in by the seats and console in the YJ

not a big process at all. in a TJ, the carpets come right out, there are just a few places where it is snapped into the tub, and the seats unbolt using (as always) torx bit. i think there were a total of 8 bolts to remove. just be careful if you decide to unbolt the seat bolts. if you leaf them hanging they lock up and are a PITA to get un-locked.

you can use it as a protective coating under the carpet, or use it to take the place of the carpet. my carpets were totally gross, so i ripped them out and chucked them.

i have a tan soft top, so the black will look weird i feel so i will prob put the carpets back in once i gice them a good cleaning, but i like the idea of the coating. might have to think about doing this once its nice out. its 8 degrees before wind chill today, so it could be a while.

I plan to herculine my tub come spring, probably leave the carpet out until late fall and put it back in for winter for the insulating factor.

Well I put two coats, one after another last night at round 10PM and it was set but still tacky an hour ago... Should be good to go tomorrow morning. The only thing that was a pain was getting the auxiliary storage boxes out cause they bolt into the frame and you gotta remove the wheel wells to get to them. Other than that it was a cake walk. Any suggestions on what I can do with them to spice up the interior? I was thinkin diamond plating them or better yet contact adhesive and zebra shag fabric...

Just remember it takes 24 hrs to dry. But give it a few days before you throw things into the jeep or put heavy things in it. the more you let it cure the stronger it will be.

My Hercules kit came with a a green scouring pad. If you don't have one, your local hardware store should.

all you need to do is get rust off and take the shine away from the paint you are going to apply it to
