there really is not much to it. you pretty much just roll it on, and be prepared for the overpowering odor. i'll try to post some pics tomorrow. oh and take out all of the seats, center console and anything else that would get in the way.

Make sure you scuff and clean the tub before applying. Clean with a grease and wax remover for best results.
Herculiner is popular because it is cheap. For a profesional looking industrial coating try Durabak. 10 times better and lasts alot longer. Costs more but worth the extra $$
I used to think herculiner was good to until I used Durabak. Cote-l Industries I am actually in the middle of repairing the floors on my YJ then priming the inside with por15 then black durabak with uv protector.

The worst parts are taking the seats out and unbolting stuff...be sure and scuff it up the best you can... and prep with acetone, etc

Hercing your tub follows the same basic principle as painting your jeep. The amount of prep work you put in will determine the quality of the end result. The better job you do in roughing up the surface the longer it will last. I used a wire wheel on a drill and a wire wheel on an angle grinder. Also I went to Harbor Freight and bought a box of 50 pair of ear plugs and used those to stick into all the holes I didn't want filled in. Just remember to pull them out before it hardens other wise its a PITA to get them out. And 2 other things that are most important.
1) Make sure you have plenty of ventilation and wear a respirator.
2) Protect your skin. Gloves, Tyvek suit ect. The only thing that gets this stuff off is xylene or acetone and that is only if it is still wet.

Here are some pics from when distortedtj and I did some hercing to my jeep.

Well I did have a lot of exposed metal but I didn't try to strip all the paint off. Just make sure you have a real rough surface everywhere.

I've done Herculiner on both my yj's. Don't waste your time taking it down to bare metal. All you need to do is scuff it up with the scotch bright pad they give you with the kit, and clean it with some acetone. Be sure to put extra coats on the drivers floor! I had it wear through with in a year and the rust wasn't far behind since it went down to bare metal the first time. I would try Durabak if they say it lasts longer and looks better. just my .02 though

X10 on the prep, I do this on alot of peoples jeeps and it is all in the prep. I have used durabak as well but in all honestly I like the texture of the duraliner better I think it washes down better. Another thing you can do to make it wash easier is to apply a coat of paint to the product after it dries it will make the washing out of the tub alot easier.

Durabak is a much better product. The price is a little higher but well worth it. Good prep is the key to making it last.

I've been contemplating doing that very thing. Did you pull the windows or window molding or just tape em off?
