    So i bought herculiner bed liner kit today at autozone for $90, I plan on using it to cover my sliders and my new bumper. I want to use this cuz it is tought rugged and is cheaper than paying for line-x. Give me some input on what you guys think of this product and some does and donts when applying it to metal surfaces

    sand down the surface real good so it can adhere well to it. rubber gloves and long sleeve shirt pants cover your whole body. i got this shit on my hands and stayed on it for at the least 2 weeks.... i used all the soap i had in my house as well lol, it makes you want to just dig and dig the crap out of your skin.. not fun. on the other hand, herculiner is a great liner, gives a nice rough surface, it tends to fade in the sun after a while though

    Thick rubber gloves (the ones that you keep). Disposable rubber gloves won't work, as the Herculiner eats through them.

    Wear disposable shoes & clothes. It will not wash out. If you get it on your skin, get it off ASAP. If it dries....try not to scrub, you could end up with a rash.

    Buy disposable pans, brushes, etc. Foam cups don't work, it'll eat through them.

    It can fade in the sun but you can use tire-shine to make it look black and pretty again. DO NOT use tire shine on any areas that you'll be stepping on, it'll make it slippery as shit!!

    After several years, you may need to reapply it in certain areas. The thinner areas can wear off over time if exposed to the weather. The good thing about Herculiner, is its soooooooo damn easy to do touch-ups.

    Try to use ALL of the stuff in the can. It doesn't fair well when stored for long periods and just not good when you try to use it again after its been sitting around too long.

    ok thanks for the input, but if it fades in a few years can I just spray paint over it, and how bad is the fading

    It also might get 'thin' in areas over the years also. <---- that might be worse than the actual fading aspect of it (atleast it was for me).

    I did my 96 tacoma bed. Most of it was underneath a tonneau cover, so it never faded or wore thin. The 2" strip around the top of the bed (over-the-rails) that I painted that was exposed to the weather....actually wore off down to the red paint after 3+ years. The rubber in the Herculiner stayed in place. I bought a quart can and repainted those areas, took about 15 minutes to do.

    Personally...I wouldn't paint it. In a few years....you're far better off getting a quart can of Herculiner and repainting it. Chances are, by the time it fades....it's probably getting thin anyway.
