    I have a nice new carpet (rubberized one) I want to install soon. I also want to wire wheel the floor on the inside, there is no rust really. I just want to clean it up and protect it and then install the mat. Can I use the Hurculiner system for this. Has anyone ever done this ?
    If so how did it come out. Thanks in advance.

    I got the floor mat setup from JC Whitney. I try and not to make it a habbit to buy stuff from them cause some of the
    quality of parts are poor. However this mat is really nice.
    I will take pics when I install it after I do the hurculiner stuff inside as well. Thanks for all the help people.

    OK I've got my floor cleaned up I'm almost ready to start covering the floor in Durabak gray. Anybody got any ideas on what to do with the miscellanous wires that used to run under the carpet? Also I plan on spraying most of it with a Shultz undercoating gun, think this will work OK?

    I've heard good things about the Herculiner stuff on the inside.

    I'm a cheapskate. I've used both Dupli-Color and Plasti-Kote rattle can stuff. The Dupli-Color is falling off the underside of my truck nicely but the Plasti-Kote stuff is still sticking. Both got the same treatment, wire brush followed by basin tub and tile cleaner, and then a rinse. I used Plasti-Kote inside my truck and don't have many complaints so far. My only real complaint is that it's so scratchy that I can't wipe it up with a paper towel without leaving most of the towel stuck to it. You can put a pretty rough texture in there if you hold the can far away.

    Here's a picture of my passenger floor after hosing it out:

    I was thinking about the rattle can stuff but I figured it would be pretty expensive to do much area. How many cans did it take you?

    Duplicolor roll in is fairly slick when wet even though its fairly bumpy.

    I've got the duplicolor in my bed and it holds up deccent. Preperation seems to be the key. It dont stick for crap on paint unless you rought the heck outa it. Used quite a few copper sos type pads and sand paper. We just did a scuff job on a buddies s 10 with the supplied scotch bright and learned our lesson for my truck.

    I think the Dupli-color stuff wants primer or something. It doesn't stick to rust for beans.

    It took four cans. Everything has at least four coats. It doesn't stick unless you rough it up good. I used 40 grit sandpaper. I haven't done the driver's side kickpanel yet though. I did it before I removed the parking brake pedal and to get the plastic panel off would be a pain with the parking brake pedal in place. I'm just waiting for warm weather now.

    If they sold the stuff for a more reasonable price then I'd consider it. $125 to do the bed of my truck is a bit much. I'd rather paint it every couple years for half that.

    If it was under $100 I'd be more willing. But $125 wholesale for 5 quarts is a bit steep especially since 5 quarts will _barely_ do a longbed.

    I've used Herculiner on the inside of both my 87K5 and 68 F**D Bronco. Great stuff and lasts forever it seems. Same old story though, you get what you pay for in most cases. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gifFor me, I have better things to do then re-do the interior every couple of years with some cheap spray on. Like the old Snap-On saying, "why is it we always have time to do it again but we never seem to have enough time to do it right the first time?" /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    I did the Duplicolor stuff in my bed and inside the cab and am not impressed. Basically just thick black paint. Very slippery as others have pointed out. I followed the instructions carefully, even using the acetone to clean first, and the stuff in the bed didn't even hold up to one load of firewood. The stuff in the cab has held up a little better. Sure doesn't insulate though, definitely need to put some kind of floor covering back in to keep the noise down and the heat and cold out. I wouldn't waste any money on the Duplicolor.
