    My Blazer came stock with that Rubber Matting on the floors. I was considering ripping that up soon and replacing it with new matting... but then I got thinking.... Why not just have it Rhino Lined or have some other spray on lineing put in....
    I may have the rest of the floors from the rear forward done as well. Prolly expensive as hell....



    Has anyone done that? What lessons did you learn about doing it?

    I think it runs around 400-600 if you have all the stuff stripped out prior to taking it...or you can apply it yourself with herculiner for about 150$ and thats a roll on process ... from what I've heard everyone that has done it has been pleased and I am planning on doing it in the near future!

    ..As I understand it, "Hurculine" or "Durabak" is the best solution for us, um, "budgeted" wheelers, [​IMG]. These products are very similar to Rhino-line except you can roll it on by yourself, therefore saving Mucho deNiro. I have done much research here and, in fact just got a letter with a sample from the Durabak people today. 12 colors available, $99 per gallon (for black and grey) with a supposed spread of about 60sq foot per gallon. There is a good article about Druabak in the "4-wheel and Off Road" magazine, September 1997. Also, Durabak supposedly "retains slip resistancy from at least -60* to +254*"
    -Hope this helps.

    I like my herculiner. Its not as think as rhino or line-X...so it doesnt deaden sound as well...but I still dig it. Its cheap, easy to repair, water proof, mud proof, and looks sexy too. =) If interested in how a herc'ed tub looks, check out my webshots. I have about as much of the stuff on my interior as anyone.

    I just ripped up my interior and I'm planning on putting down Rhino-liner once I lock down all the rust.

    Everyone I've talked to about it has loved the rubber paint (whichever one you choose). The biggest difference I've seen is price.

    Line-x wants $550.00 to my 73. I have to get the inner and outer rockers replaced before I get it line-X

    ouch, wish I had that kinda ca$h to sink into finishing my interior! Oh well, I guess I'll just have to live with a $150 Herculiner coating. On the other hand, the $400 bucks I have saved on that could take a big bite out of the cost of a front D60. =p
