    I want to cover the inside of my Blazer with Durabak or Herculiner. I read some old posts and it seems there are different opinions on which one is better. Has anyone been happy with one them? Also, how much does it take to cover the entire inside of a Blazer? Pictures would also be helpful.
    Thanks

    Took me 1.5 gal of herculiner to cover my K5. I had some in a heep that was always exposed (my k5 has the carpet over it) stood up very well. Only complaint was on a breakover angle that got a lot of traffic it wore off quickly, but its easy and seamless to repair

  4. i have hurculiner in the bed, up the sides and on the bed rails. i love it. i'm going to yank my vynil insert and do the passenger sections this summer. yes, easy to clean and very durable. i throw all my tools back their every day and the only thing that scratched it down to the old paint was when i had my 203 rollin around back there for a couple days.

    i put herculiner on the inside of my jeep for the week (after
    the shine was gone) it looked great but, as the acc.
    started going in stero,speakers,e.c.u for fuel injection.nice seats. the hose thing didn't work and washing with a rag does not work. the floors always looked like moab
    it does protect from rust great i didn't have any stripes
    for the most part it did what it was supose to.
    hope that helps

    A buddy of mine at work used that duplicrap stuff and within a week 75% of it was scratced off you would have about the same results if you sprayed the bed with about 20 can's of krylon.

    My brother used it in the bed of his '70 K5, it didn't turn out nearly as well as the Hurculiner jobs I've seen.

    Herculiner is sweeeeet! I did the first 12 inches of my rocker panels and I love it. So easy to apply with a roller, looks profesional and was cheep too.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I got a quart of Herculiner and I'm going to try it. Who knows, I might do more than the inside if I like the results.
