I hate Herculiner, Save the hassle and get it professionally sprayed. I got mine done for 350 bucks.
I did my 01 with herculiner and I am telling you it is crap and in the end I would have saved money.
Here is what it cost me:
Herculiner 75 bucks
better materials to prep bed 25-30 bucks
one day to prep, figure about 8 hours (According to my boss my time is worth about $30 and hour) 240 bucks
First coat, two hours 60 bucks
Second coat, tow hour 60 bucks
third coat, two hours 60 Bucks
Fourth coat, two hours 60 Bucks
Re assembe my bed and carefully cut the masking out of the herculiner to leave a profeesional edge, two hours. 60 Bucks
Put my four wheeler in it once and have the Herculiner scrape down to the Pirmer, then have to buy a new kit to fix it. 35 bucks
When it came time to trade it was so beat up and crappy looking, I had to buy a plastic bed liner to cover it up so they wouldn't notice it, ABout 100 Bucks
So all added up it cost me about 780 bucks, now if I gave away my time it still cost me 240 bucks and all it di was screw up my bed.
My 2004, I dropped it off at Rhino liner across the street from work, worked for 8 hours, picked it up, paid 350 dollars and it was a nicer product, less stress and if I had a problem with it, it had a warranty.
