    opinions on \"new\" bedliner products

    I have poured through the search results to no avail.

    Has anyone used the products Gator Guard II or the SEM catalyzed Eurethane bedliners?

    Gator Guard II is an epoxy (although it says it stays flexible in low temps), and I was thinking of putting it in the engine compartment on the firewall. Haven't done the research re: flamability.

    Also thinking of using it on the interior. It claims to be durable, figured that it would be tougher than Herculiner but cost less $$ than Line-X/Rhino because I can DIY.

    The SEM is a catalyzed Eurethane that should also be durable and could be put on thicker that the Gator Guard, but not in the engine compartment because it likes to burn.

    Are either of these getting closer to the quality of the professionally applied products?

    Good example of why I posted it in the member forum as I originally did, but thanks for your "help" in re-routing, the info gained has literally been invaluable.

    I just put 2 quarts of Hurculiner on the Blazer last night and I cant get the stuff off of my hands. Looks good drying in the garage.

    Use acetone to clean it off your hands, tools, etc... but its probably too late if its completly dried. I had the same problem last year, ruined some shorts and shirt.

    You don't make friends very well do you? This site is a great source of info but only if people volunteer their knowledge to you. So, when you piss people off, you don't get answers to questions. I originally typed a good sized paragraph but decided that this little guy sums it up: [​IMG]

    It certrainly does sum it up. You divulge more than you realize.

    Go ahead and keep your valuable info to yourself. It has probably gotten you this far, so....enjoy.

    MasterCraft-

    Sorry to ruin the fun, but back to the bedliner stuff... I can't speak for the two you mention, but as for the toughness of the Herculiner, I've had great results on my trailer with it. I Built a small 5x10 single axle for hauling my AC 500 Auto, and elk hunting gear on, and got very tired of repainting the thing every time I drove it on any kind of gravel roads. Broke down and bought some of that Herculiner stuff, put two coats on over the entire thing-except for the bed-and it's held up great. That was a coupe years ago now, and have had to put new tires on the trailer since, but the Herculiner is still in great shape-even over countless miles of gravel roads.

    Hope that helps, and Best of Luck,

    Mike
