    I was at walmart yesterday and saw some duplicolor. Is this stuff any good? It didn't look very thick. Would you take it over herculiner or another self applied application? Thanks!

    Its crap. Long story short, my brother took his out after a few months, returned it and got his money back, and went with Herculiner.

    VERY CRAPPY! That was the biggest waste of a day I've ever experienced. Good thing the Blazer was totalled or that would have been a lot of scraping to get that stuff up. The Herculiner seems to be quite a bit better but dries very hard. I don't think there's a cheap and easy alternative to a sprayed in liner. Just my opinion though-Russell

    Yeah, I agree. I bought two cans and put some on in my fender wells and on my axles... the stuff on my axles peeled in the next week haha and the fender wells came out alright.

    I used 2 cans of it on the inside. Never a problem with it and worked fine. I even put some of the rocker panels and it was a @#$% to get it off because I decided I didn't like the look..... so as far as I am concerned it works well enough.....

    I lined my toolbox drawers with it, and it works pretty good - I also laid it in the rear floor, and it's holding up well. One thing I have noticed is that it requires everything to be CLEAN or else it just comes right off.

    ......And knowing is half the battle

    i did 2 coats of herculiner in my rear, and it was the best 100$ i spent, i CANT get that stuff off. i tried to scrape it off for the hell of it, and it wouldnt come off!!! it spilt some on my driveway 8months ago and still wont come off, and ive pressure washed it 3 times
