    if you have the money i would get it sprayed. I used the duplicolor, and in some places it is chipping off, it might be because it was real cold outside when i did it, and that might have caused a little condensation on the surface, i think it might work better if you do it when it is real hot outside,.... Put on 2-3 layers of the stuff.

    I was thinking of pulling my interior, painting everything with some POR-15 just to be safe, then doing a rhinolining so I can just spray down the interior with a hose to clean it out. I dont know what you're going for though so this could be way off base

    I want to do the same thing, I have already grinded it down painted it and now it is in the process of roughing up again so the bedliner will adhere to it. I wanted to go this route for sound deadening, ease of cleaning, and looks.

    This is just part of the entire project, I got it in february and started tearing ito it. I can't take it in have it sprayed because i haven't got it on the road yet, before i can get it licensed i have to get the lift on it (broken front spring, bald tires) and finish the motor (new gm crate need headers plugs wires and few other odds and ends) so that counts out having someone spray it plus i would rather do it myself

    I believe if you type in ColoradoK5 as your referal, you get 10% off all POR-15 products... Might wanna check into it though as I'm still new to the whole /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif thing

    The Discounts are from Por-Texas Not the Main POR-15 site. And yes you have to have the code,but If I read it right to use the code you have to be a MEMBER of this site. Not everyone gets to use the code. We POR-15 of Texas offer this discount as a service to this websites members.

    If you have the money, I would sujust going with line-x. I'm having my suburban done when I return to the states. Its far superior to rhino or the do it yourself roll ons. Thats my opinon. If you can't decide, try to get some samples of the different brands and compare them. Might be helpful if your boarderline.

    I just found that link today. Part of the site isn't working (and sends you to a cow milking site /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif) but that seems to be the stuff you want. It is a 2 part pre-mix stuff that you can roll or spray on (with a hopper like they use to do texture coatings on houses).

    I'm going to call them sometime and try and get some of the stuff to do my s-10 by k5 and my dads ranger. I might even do some buddies trucks if they want? I don't think it would be too much $$$ to buy a hopper and the materials...the hard part is finding someone to sell you the materials without becoming a distributer /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif

    I have had herculiner from firewall to tailgate for over 2 years now, and I really like it. Assuming you prep the surface right, the stuff works great. The only time i have ever got it to peel was when i had my np205 sitting in it without any padding or anything under it... vibration+heavy iron case = rubbed to bare metal... but thats to be expected.

    overall the stuff is great. The only problem with it (for some peeps) is that it isnt too good at sound deadening. Dont matter to me, I like a noisy rig... but for peeps that like their interior cadilac-pimp-car quiet, Rhino liner or Line-X would be the way to go (if u have the $$$$$$$).
