    Looks like pretty good stuff. $80 a gallon for black doesn't seem to bad.

    Duraback

    It works pretty good. Seems to be as good if not better than Herculiner. I'm going to put it on the top and bottom of the cab of my trail rig as insulation.

    Yep, did mine. You must prep per their instructions, and don't bother with anything that is not the UV protected version. The UV version is Durabak 18.

    It was very easy to apply, and had a much longer pot life than the literature stated - just added some xylene to thin it as needed.

    I put it on with a roller. Mixed the color from their blue, black with a bit of red. [​IMG]

    About 2 1/2 gallons, but that gave me three coats. Could have easily done it with 2 gallons if I hadn't been mixing my own color.

    I thought there are similar products that have custom color options, tho I don't recall offhand who that was. The Durabak seems like pretty tough stuff tho. More expensive than Herc, but I think it's probably a better product.

    I used Herculiner on the tub of my blazer. It is some seriously tough stuff, but don't rub against it. Mine is so ruff it will cut bare knees if your not carefull.
