    The paint on the roof of my cab is peeling and I was wondering if it would be better to have it repainted or put Herculiner on the top of the cab instead? I have used Herculiner before so I know what it takes. I am pretty sure I would have to strip it down to bare metal either way I go. Anybody done this or have any useful info??
    Thanks

    Just grab a can of Rust-o-leum and spray whenever it peels more. Using a contrasting color makes it look more artsy.

    IMHO I'd use the liner on it....it would look cool and hold up well......

    Just get a bigger lift and bigger tires, then no one has to see it.

    Good lord. The rod up that man's butt must have a rod up it's butt.

    I hit the top of mine with white hammerite...paint wasn't peeling, just kind of eroding away. White splotches on dk blue paint are "interesting" looking to say the least : ) But it has held up for about 3 years..sooner or later I will get all the good body parts on it and paint.
