    If you have, what did you do about the bolt holes like where the seats bolt to and stuff? How did you make it so the bolts would still go in the holes? Thanks!

    More than one way to do it. Can oil the hole then put bolts in, then tape up the exposed part of the bolt.. Could probably even grease them, but I think that would be messier.

    I rolled up some masking tape and stuck it in the holes
    and rolled around them.

    gah, if you are gonna do the job, do it right. Remove all the "extra" bolts in your interior. I took out everything except the body mount bolts when I did my herculiner... thouroughly taped them. Pics are, as always, on my webshots! Any other herc questions, lemme know... I've used over 2 gallons of the stuff.. so far...

    Just rolled up little pieces of a shop towel and stuck them in the holes. Worked out fairly well, it was quick and simple.

    I didn't herculine the inerior, I POR'd mine.
    What I did at first was to put tape on the threads and start the bolt. But then I figured out that if I wasn't a hamfist with the paint brush, I could paint around the bolt hole and not get any inside. That's what I did.

    POR isn't good if it will be exposed to sunlight as it will breakdown from the UV rays.

    I just used bolts in the bolt holes I wanted to use, after the Herculiner dried I removed the bolts and was done. Anything more would be overkill and not needed.

    I just put masking tape over the holes, just make sure to pull it off before the liner sets up. I just used a small scewdriver to pull the masking tape up while the stuff was still tacky.

    real simple...the holes you want to keep put the bolts/screws in their holes, tape up the head, and go at it! wet or dry...just un-screw and you have a nice clean edge. holes you don't want to keep...tape over and forget. /forums/images/icons/smirk.gif
