    Well, with 15+ years of funk building up in the carpet, I've decided to rip it up, and "paint" the interior with some of that bedliner stuff. A buddy did it to his Jeep and it came out nice.

    Question: Has anyone used any of the aftermarket brands that you can buy at the stores and apply yourself? If so, any reccommendations or horror stories?

    Thanks,
    woodpecker

    A few friens of mine used the do-it-yourself Herculiner.... It came out pretty good and is still hangin on strong after about 6 months of abuse.

    I used Herculiner on the entire floor and it has held up great for over a year. I also used it on my rock sliders and the only missing Herculiner is where rocks had lunch on them. It is not hard to install just make sure you clean and rough up the surface before you roll it on. It took me four days to sand off the old camo paint from the floor of mine but it adhered very well.

    Don't get it on anything you don't want it on. It has to wear off!

    I used the Duplicolor roll on stuff througout the whole interior of my 82. It wen't on easy.. looks nice. If I had to do it all over again.. I'd use the Herculiner roll on.
    The duplicolor is fine for interior use only... just don't think it's as strong as Herculiner, LineX or Rhino Linings.

    I did my interier with Duraliner, it's not as tuff as the Herculiner. It looks good but scratches easy. If I did it again I would go with the Herculiner.

    You should all so take a look at Duraback or Durabak you mite be abel to find and ad in one of the off road mags, this stuff is a little thicker than Heruculiner, and goes on the same way.

    Lost? i'm not lost i'm just disorienated

    I dont know if it will help but you can see what Line-x bedliner looks like in a k5 at my web site and at my photo alubm

    also I helped one of my buds put herculiner in his 87 150 at first we put two coats in the back and some of it got screhed off so we sent some pics it herculiner it took 4 mounths but the sent a nother gal and it has 3 new coats up there and I thank it may even be bullet proof

    and wacth out I got the stuff on my hands and it was on there for like a week so keep it away from you Hootus or you will be sorry and we will all make fun of you [​IMG][​IMG]
