Anyone use Herculiner before?

Recommended Posts

I picked up a kit this week at a local retailer on sale plus an additional $20 mail in rebate so picked it up for nearly half price. Just put on the first coat and so far it looks good. Prepped the bed with the scratchy pad and the goo is holding on nice and even. I've browsed the internet and read that it will fade, but I have a fiberglass cover on 99.9% of the time. I was hoping to spruce the bed up a little bit and help prevent the spread of the MN road cancer (rust) in my bed. So far I'm impressed and glad I saved some serious dough compared to having some other company put a spray in type on. Anyone else use this stuff or have any knowledge of it?

I might be buying a truck that will need a bedliner, when you are done with your project, let me know how it turned out. How tough is it to do and what is the cost comparison with having one done by an installer? Thanks

Huskie things turned out well and am impressed with the result so far. Installation took a little bit and prepping the bed took some time to scratch it all up so it can adhere. It took probably an hour to prep the bed and then took another hour to put the first coat on and another 45 mins to put on the second coat. It wasn't tough to do, just took some time and then a full 24 hours to completely cure but it was hardened up before dark last night but I haven't placed anything in the bed yet. It was easy to apply and applied uniformly. I spent $45 on the kit and another $20 for some acetone, gloves, paint mixing bit for drill, tape, roll pan. Spray in liners are in the hundreds of dollars. I couldn't give you an accurate cost of what the big name installers run. I just know it is quite a bit cheaper.

Nice work M_M, I will need to consider doing the same. Now I'm looking on C List for a used drop in type. Thanks for the pix.

    • Way to go!  That's persistence!
    • Way to go Britt!
    • So our bear friend came back today and she brought somebody with her. It might be time to quit feeding the birds sunflower seeds until next fall.  
    • I picked up that double bag deal about a month ago at Home Depot here in Sioux Falls. Ironically it was the same weekend we had the big April snow storm.
    • I see Home Depot advertising for Memorial day but no Kingsford double bag on sale. Has anyone seen any on sale anywhere? I am down to my last bag and need to stock up, Memorial weekend is usually the time to do it.
    • Found a cardinal nest in one of my shrub bushes. Cute little gray fuzzy things. I tried to take a picture, but my camera phone sucks, and I didn’t want to bother them. I’m so glad I spent $20 on a cardinal nest box, only to have it sit empty.

    • Wisconsin's turkeys have survived my visit this year.  One is surely deaf after I managed to miss at 18 paces as he walked past me...  Not sure how that happened...   I feel like I rushed the shot when he started to get nervous.  Passed one jake the first morning that I could have taken at 40yd.   Came very close on two other mature gobblers.   One picked me off as he came around a hay pile at 20yd and immediately turned and ran, very smart bird.   The other came in hot, but decided to do a circle around me.  Appeared at 30yd wide open to my side while I was aiming down the sights towards his last gobble, and I had no chance to turn and shoot...  
    • Mentored for the Mn DNR women's Turkey hunt on Fri night and Sat morning. Friday was quiet but the birds flew up within 40 yards af the blind so we were hopefull for what the morning would bring. Sat morning was quiet and I waited till shooting hours to make my first yelps which were immediately cut off by 4 different birds. My lady was excited to say the least. She had never seen a turkey in the wild growing up and living in iron range.  Two of the toms gobbled a little after fly down but I could tell the were going north. The other 2 that were to our east gobbled a bit but shut up but sounded like the were coming down the road towards us. After about 20 minutes they rolled a big triple gobble within 60 yards wondering where this hen was at. I gave them a few purrs and set the call down getting her ready and calming her down for the shot. We still had not seen them put I could hear that unmistakable sound,pfffft boooom. Now I'm getting excited because I know they are danger close but they are on the side we can not see. Like always they proved me a fool and instead of coming right up the little road the cut through a high spot in the swamp and pop out in the field at 30 yards. They immediately hit full strut and throw a huge gobble right in our face and directly at my decoy that is set up at 8 yards. Then instead of coming right in they circle the decoy and blind at 25 yards and go to the side of the blind that is closed and gobble and strut for 15 min finally working into 8 to 10 yards bit still won't come towards the decoy. So I shut the one blind window and get her moved for a shot. The birds are now at 18 yards but getting skittish and moving away. As soon as I get the window open I hear her string drop and whay sounded like a hollow feathery smack and she says she got it. I look up and the birds are still there and look just a little nervous so I hit the call and they gobble back so I know it was a miss. So close but it was so much fun. Those 2 birds hung out for a few hours after strutting and gobbling at everything. 
    • Great bird, way to keep at it.
