    Well my g/f "rockos angel" and I just finished lining the rear compartment of the "new tub" and one word "wow".
    I had my doubts about us doing it ourselves.. but after the finished product... it looks great.. we have pics.. just have to get them developed. And then I gotta learn how to post my pics on here..
    Just thought I'd share this with ya'll. :)

    I bought a gallon of Duplicolor but then I heard testimonials from members of our local club who didn't like it, stripped it off and put on Herculiner so I thought that I'd just wait until I had the money to buy the Herculiner. I'll sell a 1 gallon kit of Duplicolor for $20 + shipping to anyone who wants to try it.

    The Duplicolor Kit only costed $50.. and came w/ roller, paint pan and one gallon of Bedcoating. I bought one extra roller.. since the stuff harden's quickly. Not too shabby for 50 bucks. Really pleased w/ the results.
    Gonna have the pics developed this week... :)

    Any of ya'll use the bedliner stuff on the lower body of your rig? I'm thinking about doing it about a 1/4 up the doors and all around. This would protect it from some rocks/scratches and that kind of stuff. I saw this done at the Carlisle truck show I was just at, and it looked pretty sweet.

    hey rocko

    how many coats did you put on? i just put one coat on in the tub with a roller and sprayed the rest on as many coats as was left in the can. it's been about 3 or 4 months and its comming off everywhere. good thing they sell spray cans. the rolled on part did stay on better but don't put anything in the bed that might scratch it, or move like i did. i going to give it another shot before a give up on the stuff.

    Doin' it all on a college budget

    We've done two coats w/ a roller..
    All I know is your supposed to let it cure for 24+hours.
    But w/ the heat. i'm sure it's not helping it any.. I just wanted to protect the back area from moisture.. I may still end up carpeting the whole truck. I only intended to carpet the front area.. We'll see.

    Yep... That would be it. What kind of stuff did you use or did you have someone else do it?

    Thats looks good James90. Just to let you know Mudfrog, LineX is done professionally. So you can't do that yourself.
    Rocko, I would recommend you carpet the rear as well. That protects the bedliner tons better. If you don't, you could get it all chipped up. Trust me on that. I know from experience. I used Durabak to line my interior and its supposed to be tons better the Duplicolor.

    that looks great James, I have thought about doing that myself but wondered how it would look when I was done. I'll probably plan on doing it now that I see how good it looks.

    My bud just did his truck with the herculiner. If you didn't know you would have thought it was Line-X. It came out awsome. More expensive then the Duplicolor but it's real liner like Line-x or Rhino. Duplicolor is really more of a thick paint. I did use it to seal the insides of my doors and it seemed to work well for that but I'm convinced that Duplicolor is far from the Quality of the Herculiner. They just came out with colors for them and as soon as I can lay my hands on a Tan or Light brown I'm there.

    Anyone here ever do the whole underside of the body? I've been thinking putting herculiner on the whole underside of mine to armor coat it from rust. How do you think it would hold up to the salt in the winter? I'd like to know if anyone has done this and possibly see some pics of it.

    is any of the color flaking off on the floor, Hows it holding up on the canopy? I am really interested because I got my Duplicolor for a really good deal and would love to use it but since I bought it I have heard horror stories about it.
