Below are a few chronological pics of the first mod to the jeep. I bought the herculiner kit from autozone for 100 bucks and it seemed to work pretty good. The brush and roller were cheapos but they served their function (aside from the roller media coming apart). It took me about 4 hours after work each day for 5 days to get er done but it was fun and after removing the complete interior, I learned quite a bit about the interior. I also re-learned that rusted bolts are not fun to work with.
Did you use any kind of rust converter on those front floor pans??? I used kleen brand on mine and it took a day to dry so I could apply the liner b ut it did a great job.Kind of looked like a rough black primer job on the rusted area.Also how did you like getting it to cover around that jack holder(it sucked I know) LOOKS GOOD!!!!
Those of you that have done it, how is the interior in the summer time. Does that stuff heat um and get soft or generate a lot of absorbed heat from the sun?
No it does not get soft in direct sun and heat.As fas as the heat generation it does not get any hotter that black painted metal would.Naturally black seems to draw heat more than most colors buuuttttt!!!!
Looks awesome, can't wait to do that but need to find a place to do that. As I am in an apartment still.
Did you leave all the little loops and various tie down things in there when you applied it? How does your soft top fit with it on the rail, I was thinking about doing it that way but the thought of riping up my soft top or it not fitting right is deterring me. Also did you do the door lips and tailgate lip?

I see you did the top edge of the tub. Ihave a softtop and was wondering if that wouldmess with the top at all
If you us a soft top I would recommend masking off here---- REMOVE THE MASKING TAPE ABOUT 10 MINS AFTER APPLING THE LINER.If you let it dry completly you will have to use a razor blade to cut the liner at the top edge of the masking tape before removing.
Yup, 1 gal is plenty. I have some left over and I am going to touch up in a couple spots.
I should have done something different with the masking. The lining was so tough it crept through the bottom of the tape. That is why it looks slopping in a couple spots. I should have used that good blue stuff, not the cheap masking tape like I did.
The softop is a lil harder to push under the lip but I anticipate doing it enough it will get easier with time.
Thanks nmdriver, this was very helpful. I was just at a truck center today, they have a product they claim is better than herculiner or rhino or anything else (again, they claim) but they quoted me $650 to do the jeep. I think I'll be buying the herculiner and doing it myself!
