    Hello All,

    I need some clues from someone who understands paint.

    I see they are now making herculiner in white. I'd love to cover the truck, but white, black and red are pretty limited choices.

    Would it be possible to color the white herculiner? Use it like a base, and add the color pigment from the parts store?

    I'd really like a dark blue.

    Thanks,

    Hey bigmeats just posted photos of his blazer all lined. If I am not mistaken it is in dark blue. It looks real good, you should shoot him a mail and ask him where and how he got it done.
    Good luck.
    think the post is ultimate lined blazer

    Man, I love this place. I've been hear for months, and never heard of Durabak. That is what I was looking for. Much better than trying to tint herculiner.

    (But I wonder if it is hootus-safe?)

    Thanks,

    When I got my blazer "Lined" my fried was asking about doing his truck in white. The guy said that the white has a tendency to yellow. He said he saw it happen with the Rhino lining and the Ultimate Lining. So I would do some checking into what ever product u use. Not worth spending the money just to have it yellow. Just my .02 worth!
