    I will be putting on herculiner pretty soon and I am wondering how I sould go about covering the holes, like for the seats, seat belts, back seat, ect. so that the herculiner does not get in there. should i take everything out and then put the bolts back in and paint over them or what?? and also after you do the first coat, how soon can you crawl back on it to do the second coat. should i expect to get it stuck to me when putting on the second coat. thanks for the help.

    buy some corks and stick them in the bolt holes then use the brush to paint around them. other than that if you get the bedliner kit it has all of the instructions wait 1 hour or so for 2nd coat..mine was missing the instructions went to herculiner.com they have info there

    It dries pretty quick to the touch if it's above 70, you should be able to recoat after four hours or so. I would not put it on below 65 or above 80 (ask me how I now :-0). If you get any in the bolt holes, it will be a bear cleaning it back out. I just sprayed the seat bolts, etc with grease and put them back in place, it won't stick to the grease.

    Make sure you don't get any on your hootus...cuz from what I hear that's no fun at all..... [​IMG]

    Also make sure if you mask off anything pull the tape up before it sets up hard or you'll have to pry up the tape with a razor blade.....that's hard to do if you are trying to make a straight line too....

    Be very careful not to get any on you, it sticks to various body parts easily. [​IMG]

    try not to get it on skin. I kneeled in some I slopped. it took 4 days to get it off my knees!!! I like the way it turned out. I did mine on monday. It was 60 out took 3hrs to dry to touch. Make sure you mix it real good. I didn't and when I got to the bottom of can I had alot of clumping.

    your right. I don't understand the jeep thing!

    I rolled up little strips of tape and plugged the holes with that, worked well for me.
    Good luck,
    -Aaron

    I'm thinking about hurculining the whole floor of my k5 front and back. Is Insulation really necessary for anything. Also, how much are the Hurculiner kits.

    well after the 1st coat i waited 4 hours till it was dry to touch. then it was easy to do the 2nd coat
    covering up bolts...... masking tap!!! thats what i used then when it dried completly it was really easy to take it off!!
    a 1gallon kit costs around 100$ and 1 quart by its self is 29$
    those prices are according to pep boys

    Ok I have not got a straight answer about this. I have run my 75 with not carpet for 2 years know and the heat off the tranny tunnel is killing me! Has anybody noticed a significant reduction in heat after the hurculiner? BigJBear rhino'd his and it is thick on the front floors. He said it dropped the temp some but it still isn't a truck you would want to bare foot drive once it's up to temp. I'm leaning towards a spray in simply because they can lay it in thicker in the area. I just don't think the Hurculiner can be put on as thick.
    How about some of your experiance with the DIY stuff as for the heat issue?

    I have found the kits for the black liner for as little as $69. Shop around because they are out there. Sam's Club sometimes gets them too......

    Grim, Stick with the spray stuff if you want any heat reduction. The Herculiner doesn't really drop the temp that much (or the noise level for that matter) Think I'd go with Rhino or something similar if I do it again. Stuffs a PIA to get off your skin too.

    Why do people keep calling it a Bronco!!!!! [​IMG]
