all my buddys spen the $$$ for the herculiner..... i was 'po and went duplicolor route.

Duplicolor SUCKS!

save your cash.

the herc sticks insane with minimal prep. has TONS of traction in it, goes on thick and awesome

duplicolor, barely sticks with insane amounts of prep, NO tracion in it, goes on THIN as fawk.

I dont know about the duplicolor. I just did the herc and I have to say that I was impressed. I like it. I just hope it holds up.

Have to agree here, the duplicolor sucks. Did my old truck with it and it's not only thin but doesn't stick worth a shit. The first time you drag something down the bed the duplicolor is gonna come up.

duplicolour sucks don't use it I used one of my Bronco's for a guinea pig with in two weeks it was flaking off and yes I did insane amounts of prep work.

I was going to ask myself about hercu-liner and see the jeep is about ready if it wasn't any good I was gonna pay to have it rhino-lined and be doen with it.

HERC SUCKS TOO!

I did the HERC and it sucks too, if I had it to do again I'd spend the $$$ for Line-X or Rhino. THe DIY kits just don't put it on thick enough, I've got rust coming up in places from tools and parts rolling around in the floor and scratching up the liner! I think the roller in the kit only puts the stuff on like a 16th on an in", and yes I put 2 coats on with a whole day off prep work! 1/4 in" would just be awesome but you WILL NOT get that with any DIY kit sorry to bust your bubble.

what kind of sprayer just a regular paint gun or ?

I put two coats of the duplicoour down when I did it and was thinking its still awful thin . Thats why I was gonna pay someone this time and get it done right and with some kind of warranty that way its someone else headache when it comes down to it.

I don't pay anyone for working on my junk in most cases I like the satisfaction of doing the work my self but the roll on bedliner I dunno?

if I can spray the herculiner on and get it thicker or as thinck as rhin-lining will be and it be cheaper to do I'll go that route otherwose I'm gonna pay someone.

Anyone ever use Durabak? I've heard mixed reviews about the stuff, but was planning to put it on my eb inside and out.

I am using the herculiner. When I opend the can to stir it there was about 1 to 1 1/2 of "stuff" on the bottom. What a bitch to get mixed. Did anyone else have this problem?

I've sprayed Herc a bunch of times (great stuff by the way) but the best way to mix it up is with on of those plastic paint mixers you use in a drill. Couple bucks and it mixes it up extrememly even in no time. It even goes on more even if you use that.
Also, Durabak is the exact same as Herculiner. Durabak actually makes Herc.

HTH

Oh, and here's a link to the gun I used. Basically disposable at $7 a pop.

prep

There are ways to get the duplicolor to go on thick and not flake. Its just might be more work then some want to put into it. Prep Does work. Not saying the other stuff isn't better just don't bash the other stuff. Although I do agree it doesn't work for most people who want to do minimal prep work. I got it to work but maybe I am just lucky.

do you have to have anything special to spray it on, other than the gun and a compressor?

Is it hard to do?
Would this stuff work good on the inside of my cab, as far as a sound deadner?

Its probably a good idea to get a water seperater for the air line between the compressor and the gunto keep water out of the herc, and lots of plastic and tape to mask off the entire truck, but other than that, I can't think of anything else you need.
Make sure you plug up any bolt holes as well so you don't get herc in the threads. What I did was roll some tape over the bolt, and thread it back in up to the tape.

As for sound deadening, I never noticed too much of a difference, but i have to compete with wind and soft top noise too, in my jeep, so I'm sure it will make some difference in a pickup.

I had to make this decision also, but found the Bondo bed liner and the shit kicks ass. I have it everywhere on my rig mostly to get rid of rust and stuff like that. I compared it to the herculiner and this stuff also seemed thicker and was about the same price. I suggest you look in to it. If you live near a Fleetfarm they sell the shit there.

Does that gun come with some sort of canister, or do you have to search for something that screws into it?
