    the k5 i am looking at buying has a pretty good interior, but i was wondering how a rhino-line (or something like it) under carpet works. i just want to line the entire inside floor and rear wheel wells and such, and then reinstall carpet over top and carpet the panels and doors? will the carpet still fit with that .25 in of liner inn there? also what liner to you recommend and should i do it professionally or myself?

    What about just Rhino Lining your carpet ?

    okay... just kidding..... yes your carpet will still fit. Why do you want to do it this way ?

    do herculiner, urself!!!
    its not 1/4 in thick. its pretty thin, but works the BEST.
    what u gotta do for the front [i have done my rear but not the front yet, but i knwo how to do it.] ok anyways, for the front, take out the console, seats, seatbelts [ both buckles and belts], the sill plates, the 4wd shifter, the plastic in the rar by the rear seat. and i think thats it for the front. then the carpet comes out, jsut liek that, really easy, but since ur putting it back in, there is this blackstuff, what u will wanna do is take that out VERY carefully. it will crack and break, it deadends noise and heat. then after u get that out, follow the directions from the can.
    for the rear. take out the rear seat, spare tire, and carrier and the side panels, and the rear sill plate, and then do the same thing w/ the carpet. but the carpet on the wheelwells is glued on. so u gotta use some UMPH to get it off. then the adhesive is still left. its a bitch to get off. but what i did was took a grinder to it w/ a wire brush [wear thick clothes eyeprotection and gloves to protect from stray flying brush wires] and then take that grinder to it. but make sure the stuff is shooting out the back of the blazer, or else its a mess to deal w/
    anyways. thats what i have done. let us know how it turns out.

    because this will mostly be my daily driver, it's gonna be my first car when im 16 and i have this awesome custom interior idea with a big chevy loyalty influence, but i am big into snowboarding and such, and will get into muddin. so when the snow starts falling, the carpet comes out. anyone have any ideas for plugs in the liner and bed so if i hosed it out of got snow in there i could drain it, thanks

    First off, fill in your profile. The herculiner works pretty good, but wear gloves and long sleeves, it sticks to everything and doesn't like to come off of skin. What year is this K5? My 1990 has stock body plugs behind the front seats for draining etc. Having already done the Herculiner thing, I think I'd just assume have it sprayed next time. It was a serious PIA.

    I would think it would still fit. You might have to trim it a little, but that's no biggy. Are you looking for rust protection or insulation? Rhino-lineing the inside is expensive (unless you go with herculiner). If you are looking for rust protection, I'd go with POR-15. If you want a little more insulation go with herculiner.It'll save some money. What I plan to do (just an idea for you) is rhino-line the back and the wheel wells and POR-15 the floor and put carpet up front. I'm changing my interior to gray and I can have it rhino-lined to match the carpet. That will still be expensive, but I don't want it black like herculiner will be, cause it's too hot here for that. Just my .02 cents. [​IMG]

    James, is your dash sprayed with line-x also? How well did it stick? Was there any cracks in your dash before you line-x ed it? How did you prep it? Sorry for so many questions!

    thanks

    There are drain holes in the floor, they have plug, but you have to get under the truck and bend soem tabs around to get them out. I had my carpet out a few months ago, and cleaned out a little rust. Since rust isn't a big problem in texas, I picked up soem Rustoleum and painted the floor with that with 2 coats. Put the carpet back in...BTW, if your going to put your carpet back in, don't hang it over a door. I did and it doesn't fit right anymore. Try to lay it out somewhere. Good luck

    i would advise having Rino liner or line ex or some other pro spray in done. every herculiner job i have seen chips. and easily. you can not beat a free repair lifetime warrenty. yeah, it costs more. but it is able to be almost any color. the idea of spraying the outside of the truck has been done. i have seen two trucks like this. one in full and the other just to prevent rock chips and a bra on the hood. looks sharp and no paint to wash or scratch. my two bits.... dont mind me....

    1974 Chevy Blazer Cheyanne. lots of plans for it....
    but it is on 33's now, with saggy old springs. i am in so cali if ya got any parts for me.
