do you think I can Herculine over the carpet on that awful rear storage cover? I figure it's textured anyway, and I'm sure it will stick.

You would never get the tabs at the front of the lid back into the slots they fit into. As it is, just with the liner sprayed on the floor, I have to jam mine in. I thought about hittin it with a gnarly stripper pad, sand it smooth & shoot it. It would look nice.

Line-x can kiss my **s....u-pol raptor liner & coated floor boards with por-15 first...preparation is key!!! With these two products and a eye for detail you can have an awesome fully weather proof tub for under $170....this project took me a couple days, but that's cause my after market seats were a little tricky.....oh also raptor liner kit was enough to do speaker bar and sidesteps...

eBay...raptor liner came with gun to spray..make sure it's sprayed at 60 to 65 psi..and any rust sand and hit with por-15..eBay has that kit as well..por-15 kit includes cleaner and metal treatment. This process is easy and the results are awesome..

Heres a good question I want to use the u-pol raptor lining kit. But i have a hole in my floor so I have to weld in a patch. I know the patch thats welded in will show through but do you think it'll look bad, won't matter, or may actually look kind of cool.

Check out my pics above...that's how I did mine. It looks pretty cool that way and don't have to worry about kit ever rusting out.

If you think it's that big of a deal, you should hit the gym and offset the weight gain... j/k

After I sprayed my tub every crease, bend, bevel showed through, but in my opinion that made it look pretty cool....

I figured it would be a battle scare haha. Also how do you think that stuff would stick to a hardtop.

Good question haha..but I thought the same thing before I finished spraying tub..that's why I sprayed speaker bar & a speaker cover on dash with leftover liner. I prepped it correctly and sprayed both just to see how it would hold up...it's been a couple weeks and it's as hard as tub with no chips, scratches or peels...I think it'll be fine...my next project it to match dashboard with the red and black color scheme...

I'll have to do a little more research before I do that then. I don't want to make a nasty mess. It would look good if it would hold up though.

Has anyone lined things like fender flares? I've done the inside and my front bumper and have been thinking about covering the flares to just avoid the fading and scratching. And it is just me or was the regular old paint brush much more effective overall than the roller? My whole second coat will be done by brush I'm thinking. Gets the cracks a whole lot better. Lets face it a Jeep tub isn't exactly an easy to brush square. Anyway if anyone has done the flares please let me know and get some pics so I can decide if I wanna go that route or not.

I did my 99 my self with Hercules brand. It will take a few days. U have to strip or sand the surface. Spray and then let it dry but I love mine no more wet carpet and easy to clean. I did it in black and I purchased some red paint to match and I web or splatter it to break up the black I think it looks great
