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.

    • You don't have to be suspicious of religion at all. Spend some time at church, if it fits you great, if it doesn't, you move on.   I went through dozens before i found a home,   If you are going to cast a suspicious eye. Do not start with governing body or a religion.   Start with the family, as that is where all the pressure, guilt and brain washing starts.  
    • You'll still only be able to go so fast with tracks whether you're turning 2 or 4. Sure might add a little speed with just 2, but any incline or terrain, having only rear tracks is just going to get you stuck.

    • took to long but I finally  ordered the grill this morning!! looking forward to using it!! 
    • 2.20.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report   Hello from the NW Angle!   We still have lots of ice up here, however the snow pack is diminishing rapidly, especially with the warm temps and rain in the forecast.   On the Minnesota side, fishing away from structure seems to be most productive with target depth being from 22-30 feet. Gold continues to be the hot color. The amount of perch we are seeing in our buckets continues to increase.   Fishermen on the Canadian side are still reaching their crappie limit with ease, fishing holes between 29 and 35 ft. A variety of baits are producing including, wax worms, mustache baits and dead minnows.   Until next week, Sunset Lodge Ice Team
    • this thread is making me soooo hungry!!!!!!!!  great looking food guys!!
    •   True.  Trump doesn't either.   Like I said, we should be more suspicious of rulers and oppressors who use religion as a tool than the religion itself.    
    • We picked up a couple voles mid-last week, that must have come from our neighbor yard.  Once the neighbors snow melted, their nest was exposed and it is quite the elaborate colony too.  Got a deer mouse this morning also.
