The cost was right around $100 (give or take according to what you already have). It shouldn't take no more than about 5 hours; stretched over two days. I use to do paint and body on motorhomes and I'm certified 3K systems; so I had a time advantage and did it in about 3 - 4 hours.
What you will need, for a durable job is:
1 Gal Herculiner
1 Scotch Bright Pad
1/2 gal laquer thinner
1/2 gal mineral spirits
small paint roller with two rolls
two inexpensive paint brushes
metal paint mixer for use in the drill to stir the mixture.
I did it with the front seats still in the vehicle. Remove the back seat (if you have one in there) and all the carpet. There are a couple warning tags on the transmission tunnel; ignore those and tear them off; lol. Strap up your rear seat belts to the roll cage.
Trim the tack strips to fit the drain holes. I used on one each side in the rear and two on each side in the front. They should be slightly larger than the hole but able to fit down into the body line of the floor, over the hole. Don't leave square edges, round them off so as it's less likely for future snags.
Dividing your thinner and mineral spirits into three parts, mix 1 part thinner and 1 part mineral spirits. Do not use thinner straight up as it can cause paint to peel; depending on the paint used in vehicle. This mixture will burn cuts and be absorbed into the skin. If you don't like either of these, you may want some chemical gloves. With the scotch bright pad soaked with the solution, scuff all the painted area's you want the line to be.
Once all the surface is sanded with the scotch bright pad, mix a fresh 1 part thinner and 1 part mineral spirits. With clean rags soaked in the solution, clean over all the area to be coated. This took about five rags. Then, repeat with the last mixture of fresh solution and fresh rags.
Once the surface is dry, it does not take long, stir the Herculiner for a couple minutes to make sure it is well mixed. With a paint brush, brush some liner around the drain holes then place the cut tack strips into the area and dab more liner over. Dab so as the liner does not fill the small holes; or you can take a small drill bit afterward and reopen the holes.
I started from the rear and poured a small portion of liner in the tub of the Jeep then used a roller to smooth it out over the floor, up the fender wells, and anywhere I wanted the liner. I dipped the roller in the can to put on the inside of the tailgate.
Once the rear is finished, move the seats forward and do the rear floor board. Be careful of the drain plugs so you don't slide them out of place. Then move the seats back and do the front floor boards.
Let it dry over night and put a fresh coating on in the morning. It will be ready to drive by that evening, if it's a nice warm day; or you can wait until the next day.
I drive truck for a living and I'm on the road right now. I'll be home by the third weekend of March and I will get some pictures of what to use and how it looks; maybe make a small video of the process.
