    Looks way cool. Sexy wheels/tires too. Gotta love low profile wrapped around big shiny rims [​IMG] Love the fender trim(not joking on this one). I can't wait till I get the chance to trim my fenders. Thats the one part of blazers I don't like is the squareish wheel wells.

    It took two gallons, but I could have used one more and it would have looked a little better. Since it's a trail rig, I'm not worried about seeing a few flaws if you look close. If I want I can allways roll on another coat since I used the standard roller and brush that comes with the bed kit to paint it :-). The colored Herculiner goes for about $140.00 a gallon. But what the hell, it looks good and it only cost me $300.00 total. But one warning, that sh!t is like glue and paint mixed, put on two layers of protective clothes and gloves because it sticks to everything.

    Thats why I wore two pairs of gloves, my hootus is Herculiner free LOL . The reason I went with the little tires is for maximum articulation LOL, and well fitting it in my garage.

    I'ts about a weekend away from being done, besides the tires a wheels. I just got a quote from the local 4wheelparts and want 1500.00 for 38's on steel wheels :-(. I'm looking around right now to find a set of used ones for a little less $$. maybe by the end of the month it will be ready for a break in run. We should get a run going along the western Washing beaches this summer. I don't know the area, but I'll bet sombody on this board does.

    Hey that is a very nice rig. I was thinking about doing something about like that to my '82. How much herculiner so you think it would take to just do the inside of my tub, and exactly how rough is it, would I need to lay a mat down if I was to be loading stuff in and out of the back. thanks and once again very nice rig.

    It's great inside, it is soft and rubbery plus it cleans easier than carpet. It took about a gallon to do my interior.
