Rhino liner

Ok....I just bought a 99 Sport. I (like everyone else) have a list of "to do's" for it. The carpet came out the first day and I am going to put some kind of liner throughout the interior. I almost passed out when Rhino told me $850 and that was me doing most of the prep work. So here it is....what is a cheaper alternative? I thought about the roll on kind from Walmart but not too sure about it. $50 bucks vs $850 is one heck of a savings but it ain't worth a damn if it lasts for a month and looks like crap. Does anyone have any experiences with this they wouldn't mind sharing. Has anyone used the Walmart stuff? How long does it last? etc...etc...

Thanks...

I wish I could say I was independantly wealthy but it just ain't happening. I have a lot of other stuff that I want to do FIRST. If someone had a cheaper way then I would move it up on the priority list. Until then....Tires, wheels, lift.....you get the picture....

I'll keep the post informed....

i rolled on some duplicolor bed liner, it took me 1-1/2 cans to do the entire interior of my cj7. it dries to a very hard finish that will take a lot of abuse. it cost me about $40 including the 3" roller, plus i didnt really even prep it well. i just vacuumed and hosed out the interior. the por-15 (paint over rust) is great stuff too. my husband has that on the inside of his yj and it is damn near bullet proof. IMO rhino liner is good but not $850 good.

I heard that there was a new spray lining system that sound system installers are using to deaden rattles in trunks of competition audio cars and such that may be cheaper than other liner systems. I was told that it comes in aerosol spray cans; just another idea to kick around...

I applied almost a gallon of Plasti-Kote from W/M about 2 years ago, I don't know if there's anything better. I've noticed lately they carry another brand also.
I've got a friend that paid $400 plus material for a professional job. I thought that was crazy 'til I did the job, it took me a complete summer day.

por-15 is just as bullet proof as they say, i didn't believe it at first. i did the underside of my cj5 and after a few big dents and dings the por-15 has not chipped or showed any sings of damage, as for the paint on the fenders well it all chipped off around the dents. with por-15 you can paint it onto a piece of sheet metal and sit there and just start bending it in different ways ant it will hold.

If the POR 15 is so tuff, how do you get it off yourself? Your always going to get a little on you somewhere while doing the job, right?

Wear rubber gloves and long sleeves. It also helps to tape the ends of your sleeves closed around your wrist.

If you still end up getting it on you, try to get to it before it dries. If dry you can TRY (try, because it is a pain to get off and you basically have to wait for it to wear off).

gasoline.
break cleaner.
lots and lots of GOJO.

Same applies to herculiner and all the rest.

Just remember.....

Don't get it on your hootus.

if it dries you need to let it fall off as your skin "sheds"

I worked at a Restoration shop for awhile a few years ago. I got some Por-15 on my Jeans while I was doing the frame on a Datsun convertible. I wear/wash those jeans AT LEAST once a week for the ~3-4 years they got the Por-15 on them, and the black stains are still there to this day. I have tried everything, it won't come out.

I also got some on my arms/hands and stomach one time when I was rushing and being careless. As said on here, I tried brake cleaner, acetone (pure acetone), prep-sol, paint thinner, gasoline, kerosene, diesel, sandpaper and 3m scuff pads (red, gray, and green). Nothing I tried did ANYTHING to get it off. I ended up having it stay there for about two weeks, maybe a little more, maybe a little less, until the skin sheded

I used POR15 on my rust and then covered everything in Herculiner. It works awesome. It was easy to do and I bought both kits on Ebay for about $125 total for both. They are right, you DON"T want to get that stuff on anything you don't want it on.....

I will give Herculiner my vote but from what I have heard and seen Raptor works very well also.
