Herculining lower body

Anyone have any experience herculining the bottom part of the body? I was thinking of doing about a 2 inch strip around the bottom like in between the front and rear fenders as well as across the back. Let me know if anyone has done this and how it turned out. Pictures would also be appreciated! Thanks guys!

I herc'd my TJ about 6 months ago. Came out great and is holding up as advertised.

TWO coats. One thin one and after curing until it's not tacky anymore, a second thick coat (per herculiner's directions).

One can did both coats in my tub from the firewall (as high as I could go) to the tailgate (including the inside vertical part of the tailgate) with a 1/2 pint left over. It retains dust but I don't care.

Wow, that looks nice. I'm looking to Herc my tub in the next month or so and I'll probably put a strip along the bottom and both rear fenders. Nice work.

That looks awesome. I'll definitely be doing that. I have a few little paint chips along the bottom of the body so I want to get those covered up with something that will take the beating.

Herculiner held up well on my old Tacoma (Bumpers and rocker panels). Proper prep is the key

Awesome...yea i have heard the prep work makes it or breaks it so ill be sure to take my time with that

Also, has anyone done in and/or below the door sills? I seem to be getting a lot of paint chipping there from people getting in and out and wanted to do that as well. If i did it inside the door frame would the door rub on it or would it clear?

I did the door sills and the lip beneath the tailgate.

Came out fine, no rubbing and gives me some extra traction when it's wet outside (doesn't happen much here, but hey).

Prep work IS the key. Wear something you want to throw away when you are done and if you happen to get any herc on the outside paint, let it dry and just peel it off. It just doesn't stick to wax/clearcoat at ALL. I got a brush tip of it on my quarter panel and didn't notice it until it was dry. Just peeled it off (whew, I thought I was in for some work for a minute).

Follow herc's instructions and all will be well. They have a couple of instructional vids on their website too.

Good luck.
