So I like how everyone's tub linning is looking but no one ever posts pictures or comments of how it is after 6 months or a year. Does anyone have chipping issues? Is the liner holding dirt? Issues with any fading? Or other items afterwards.
Most of the comments on here are from fairly new jobs -- I'd like to get the "well seasoned" review/comments. I'm considering lining my tub but I've seen some line-x jobs that look like crap 6 months later.
Appreciate the feedback. (Picture of old lining jobs would be nice if you have the time).

mine started to but i didn't put it on heavy enough. or didn't get the tub cleand out. but it lasted for about 1 year and in some spots its pealing off. i used herculiner and looking at it i'm pritty sure i didn't put it on heavy enough. my buddys TJ it took 1 1/2 gal to do it and he hasn't had any problems i did it a week after i did. i only used 1/2. next week i'm going to redue it. the stuff has to go on heavy and thick for it to work.
I've had mine Herculined since 05, no chipping or fading from it.
Yea it does hold dirt & mud unless you wash it out, but that's kindof the whole for the Herculined tub, being able to wash it out, with out worries of the mold & mildew from the carpet.

my buddy did his k-5 about a year ago and its all worn out by the brake and gas from his feet moving back and forth all the time. just put a floor pad down on the driver and passenger side. the rest of it looked really good though.
I used the duplicolor stuff inside and out over a year ago now and it is holding up great, sprayed it on using a Schutz gun. I only have one bad spot and that is on the drivers side of the trans hump about the size of a quarter, and I think it was just bad prep there. Floors are good even on the drivers side.
Mine's been in for about 6 months now. Holding up just fine even with a lot of traffic on it (tools in and out, emptied it to put a roll cage in etc).
Only real issue is that with the dust I'm usually in out here, the stuff looks gray from the dirt it retains. I just hose it out occasionally and it's all good.
Seems like the better the prep work, the better it holds up. Plus if a small piece comes off, blow some black spray paint on it. You'll never be able to tell.
X2, believe it. I had the cab floor of my service truck done, [I]then put 1/4 stall mat over that in the drivers area only[I]
I did the stall mat because I need to be able to get in and out with my caulks on. I did not do it myself, it is Rhino lined. That is a question I guess, is it different than the other pro bed-liners ? Probably the same stuff, just shot from a different gun. They REALLY scuffed the floor area and laid it on THICK. Gets dirty, scuffed, muddy, greasy, bloody and beat to crap. I wash it out with a hose, scrub it with car wash soap and brush, even scuffed it looks pretty good.
I lined the tub of my Jeep a couple years ago and it's holding up just fine. I suppose I can snap a few photo's if you're still interested. I will admit, I did take a little extra prep time and stripped the interior, masked what I didn't want lined, and lightly scuffed the interior first. I think I used just over a gallon for the entire tub. (Just to clarify, I didn't strip the dash or heater, etc. but everything else like center console, seats, etc.) Don't regret it at all and will likely do it to my other TJ project.
