    not rhino... herculiner...

    [​IMG]

    thats the only pic of it I really have right now. Rhino liner is better for deadening sound and its a bit tougher too... but herc only cost me $100 to do (I used about 1.5 gallons) and has held up fine.

    I Herculined mine also (and didn't get any on my hootus... )

    Same as JEK, it was only $100 (Linex wanted $650 to do the same amount).
    Came out looking really good. I did from the pedals to the tailgate. I'm sure the performance is better with Rhino or Linex, but for $550 difference... That could buy a lot of other toys!!!

    Herculined mine as well, and was suprised that the one gallon kit was more than enough to do the whole floor in the blazer.

    I am VERY pleased with the results, and it is very durable. I noticed it also can be painted with good success. I don't know what the official word on that is, but I painted over a few areas I had herculined and the paint adhered very well.

    Oh yeah, I also got my Herculiner off eBay for less than $100 shipped, which saved me about 10% over buying it at the parts house (sales tax).

    Mine has the Herc or some other cheapie version, seems to work great and I'll be putting another coat on this summer. Pro's are: easy to clean and durable, con's are that it's loud as crap and hot in the summer.



    Oh, also do not know the status of P.O.'s hootus and want to keep it that way. :grin: I will make sure and keep my hootus clear when re-applying.

    Hurculined mine also. Prep was a mother but well worth it in the end. Very inexpensive compared to taking it to a "liner" shop.

    Mine is Rhino Lined from the firewall to the tailgate. The finish is smoother than the Herculiner or other products I have seen, and is very easy to clean with a leaf blower or a hose. My son and I did most of the prep work, and had the lining installed for less than $400.

    Hi, i like your roll cage. I am in the middle of fabricating one for my 78. Yours looks like it is a store bought one. Im doing mine from scratch, and kinda wishin that i had spent the money. Anywho, You would do me a huge favor, by giving me a couple of dimensions of the bars that hold your seats. What is the height from the floor boards to the top of the bar that your seats rest on? Did you mount seat sliders for your seats to mount on? Are you using a 5 point harness, or regular seat belts? If you are using the 5 point harness, did you configure it to slide with the seats, or is it stationary? Any help would be awsome.
    thanks, and God bless.

    :yikes: 73K5 how much did that cost? My local Line-X guy said that pedals to tailgate is $600, and the whole truck would be 2 grand....

    The front section of the cage is the smitty bilt, the back section is fabbed as well as the seat cage. I also fabbed all the frame to cage supports underneath.
    Unfortunatly I cannot give measurments until this weekend as I am out-of-town all week. The height, however, is the same exact height as a stock '90 K5 seat riser. I am using a corbeau 3 point retractable harness , stock sliders/adjusters from '90 K5, corbeau seats. My harness is the retractable version, so it will go with the seat.

    B_to_C, as far as cost....well....it was $2600 for the line-x (underside of tilt clip, underbody is also all sprayed). Same as a decent paint job though., that was my rational anyway....

    Mine is sprayed inside and out, but I do it here at my shop so cost to me was just materials and my time, of course, taping the flames off took about 4 hours :yikes: :screwy: our prices start at about 800 bucks to spray a whole vehicle and goes up from there depending on many factors. The inside of mine is black..i will get pics of the inside soon.

    Your Reply Was A Big Help. I Had No Idea That They Made Retractable Harnesses.
    Thanks Again, And God Bless.

    Here's mine. Speedliner sprayed in at a body shop. I can't tell you cost since they did a ton of other work. Whole interior was done along with guage cluster, door panels, glove box cover, and some exterior.

    The title says "rhino vs. carpet" and no one has said anything about carpet, so I'll be the lone wolf on this one. I like carpet b/c to me it's clean, nice, and quiet. However, my truck is a "show truck" (not show quality but seems that's what a "nice" truck is getting called around here lately). I drive my truck alot and do not do any "wheeling" so I want a comfortable ride. If I did have a "wheeling" truck though I would definitely get the Rhino lining. Depends on what you do with it. Just my .02. :D
