    I want to coat my body with rhino liner, is this a good move? Expensive? Time consuming, what preperations do i need to do? Or can i just put it over existing paint? Thanks.

    Heh. If ya go back a couple pages, there's several strings about Rhino-line, Herculine, etc.
    But yes, excellent Idea......it is expensive to have it professionally done, I would recommend doing it yourself (w/ roll on stuff like Herculine).
    Only prep I know of is eliminate rust, patch holes, & clean surface well.

    I'm in the middle of putting down Herculiner (got the interior out, gotta patch holes/clean floor, and waiting for the Herc to come in the mail).

    Seems the worst part is patching up the rust in the floor.

    I did my interior in Rhino - there are several pics on my site (below).

    I love it....I have thought about the exterior but the quotes I got were outrageous. The have to tape off an enormous amount. The tape they use is expensive also. It is a special tape. But, I still love it.

    Oh, yea.....if you do the outside, the color fades quite fast. I did have my factory rear bumper covered in Rhino and it is now a flat black. The inside is still quite glossy. BTW,......I am selling the bumper - anyone interested?
