Herculiner?????

Was wondering if anyone ever used that spray in bed liner from the store like the stuff called Herculiner? If it was any good, and if it stays on or comes off easily. Was thinking of using it a a two-tone on my truck but dont want it to peel off.

Thanks

Its all about the prep, as with any paint. I think herculiner will fade a little bit more than the expensive ones. But they have a UV coating that is supposed to help

Ive done like 6 or 7 truck beds with it yet, and he is correct, its all in the prep. if you cut corners and try to get done quicker, it will turn out ****ty. and they do make a u/v coating but i havent seen it for sale in any store but its on their website. if youre doing a 2-tone, I'd definetely use it. If you want pics of my bed, let me know.

Thanks for the pics. Looks great!!! So how do you do the prep and all, just asking so I know what you guys have all done so I do it right. Also how much did you use for the Ranger, and it was Herculiner that you used?

Thanks again!!!

like a half gallon, and yes herculiner. It comes with a pad for scratching the paint but i didnt scratch that hard. There's a natural body line i followed and then i used blue tape to mark it off. I wish i put an additional layer on

I have it on my truck also.
I noticed it goes on thin with the provided roller.
If i had to do it again i would get a texture paint sprayer and spray it on to the bed for a thicker coating.

ive been thinking about doing this in my bed as well. how much of the gallon does the bed in one coat. ive checked out other members on other products and it seems to be the consensus about the thin coats. but naturally doing more than one coat. pics and imput would be great

I did three coats on the bed sides and 4 coats on the floor and fenderwells. One gallon was plenty-I had enough left over for any touch-ups needed--too bad it solidified in the can after 3 years of sitting in my basement!

I did my bed in Herculiner as well...and I agree with everyone about getting a good prep. I didn't do a great job on prepin mine and the first thing I slid acrossed it, it started to peel up. As for a 2-tone I used Dupli-color bed liner in the spray can and it works great and looks awesome! I highly recommend it! I even sprayed my bumpers and fender flares in it also, and was very impressed with it. Also the Herculiner with fade...mines just a couple months old and it has started to fade so I just hit it with a layer of the Dupli-color.
