Do you have to prime it to do a spray in job? I thought most of the roll on applications you just prep and clean with a degreaser.

No it is not "a have to", but I wanted to paint the inside a little to freshen it up sides since I am not going to herculine the entire tub. I read that if you put down a rust resistant primer paint, the herculiner will adhere better. Guess I'll find out. It was to [email protected]$n much work to take a chance, especially since the previous owner had already half arse attempted to put some kind of liner down as you can see in first pics. I was afraid to take a chance on herculiner not binding to it....

Anyone on the forum ever use Grizzly Grip? From their website it looks like a good product. Comes in about 25 colors, with uv protection. Rolls on.

Sorry, not meaning to hijack your thread... You guys can move it if you want.

I haven't heard of the Grizzly grip liner. I believe that Herculine now offers a few different colors for your jeepn' pleasure. I believe the colors are black, grey, white and I think there is one more.

Ive already done this, I bought the kit. All I did was mask off everything and hit what I was going to cover with the red scratch pad, then roll on. No primer no bear metal.

What about the Dupli-Color stuff? I have seen this around in addition to the Herucliner. They even have some in aerosol cans that looks easier than rolling it on. Anybody tried this?

I bought a set off ebay for like $12, came in a bag, we used the rustoleum truck bed finish on our YJ. Put 4 coats, two on a friday and two more on sat, we just divided the mix in half. Had to clean out the drain holes though with a hand made reamer.

Thx so much for posting this and being so thorough with the pics. It looks GREAT. I bet you're thrilled with the results! :)
Yes, I'm pleased. I was reluctant to start this, but I'm glad now that I did.

One word of advice, don't crawl around on that stuff, will make your knees a bloody mess and destroy pants material as if the belt loop ripper was not a pia...:D
