    Anyone know where I can get more of the foam rollers that come with the herculiner kit from, i've looked around a little but havent had any luck. I want to do the cab area but it will take a while to do it with a brush.

    most hardware stores have textured rollers for dry wall mud/painting, might try there, I've seen em from semi smooth all the way up to extra heavy texture. Just a thought

    I believe any roller will do, you use it more like a broom than a roller! I just di the front of my wife's rig and that thing looks sweet! The back was done a long time ago! We might do the back again, bu man, that stuff is a pain to stir! I bought my can like 2 years ago on sale and I opened it yesterday! I must have pulled a quarter of the can out in one chunk! In my opinion, by it only when you're going to use it, and have plenty of xylene ready! PS. I used an industrial stirring rod to stir mine, without that, I would've been dead in the water!

    I just did mine (Durabak gray). Used a undercoat or "Shutz" gun. The problem was finding an empty Shutz container 'cause it just screws to the gun. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Go to walmart and get the roller brush kit that is for the dupli-color bedliner kit. They are plentyful and work 100000 better than anything else out there. They work better than the foam roller that comes with the herculiner kit. Wal mart sells the tray and roller brush together for a cheap price.
