Anyone use Herculiner before?

12 posts in this topic

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.
