has anyone done this? pros and cons? does it crack after awhile?
I have the 3M bed liner throughout the floor of my K5. Despite me prepping it really well, it hasn't held up too great. It cracks/flakes MUCH easier than a name brand (e.g. Rhino) liner. It was cheap (less than half as much as even the Herc) and does its job ok so I guess I can't complain
Yup I did it, and it is pretty nice! Herculiner is quality stuff. The one thing I recomend is to where gloves when doing it, prep work will determine how it holds up over time or if it'll flake off, and also the thicker the better. I could have done my floor a little thicker but oh well...
here's a pic of how it came out:
herculined mine 2years ago, still looks good. some spots are pealing from where theres alot of use, like in tha back when i just throw stuff in there, but its really easy to touch up. id definitely do it again. next time around im going to lookin to a line-x quote and see what that would run me
It dosen't crack, it peels. So fiix any thin parts on the floor, weld any rust spots from the top and add metal where needed. After you have removed the the seats, plug the bolt holes with foam. You will need to build these areas up with a little more stuff. When you remount the seats it will act as a gasket. Forget about vaccuming dirt out, it won't work.

SO from everyone who has done it should people do this to thier trucks or not?

yes. if the line-x ends up costing too much, ill do it on my next k5 as well
Gonna do mine,but still working on prep.
Line-X gve me an expensive quote for my K5, like $650 - $700 to do the interior, I have found out though each franchise sets their own prices so check more than one if you can.
ya, after doing the floor in the stuff, I decided I will also do the bed of my truck in the stuff too. Its pretty tough stuff, also the longer it sits it seams the harder it gets as far as protection. Also its a great rust preventative too!
I had my entire body Line-X'd inside and out.
I love it.
Clicky for thread
ok so is the prep for it the same as painting prep?
also how much did ya'll buy in cans?
I think I used a gallon. It definitely could be thicker on the floor, I think I did 2 or 3 coats (mine is nowhere near the 1/8" or 1/4" that the professional jobs do).
I used 1/2 gallon on my floor of coarse with a pickup I have less floor to cover.
has anyone put rust bullet down before doing the liner?
