Default Herculiner.

Is it worth the money? If anybody has it on their truck, can you show me some pics? Thanks.

I'm going to do that to my bed soon. I think it is worth the money for paint protection but if you use it for moving things, contruction and all a regular bed liner may be better. Hercaliner will not prevent dents and dings as well as a regular bed liner. BUT like my truck, the bed liner rubbed the paint right off and its retains water and causes rust!

I'm not going to be using it for moving things. Just for paint protection, and looks. I hate how it looks without on!

I just bought Herculiner. I read a lot of good reviews and saw some pretty good pics online. I like that it's not expensive, and you can buy quarts of it for repairs down the road.

Preparation is a pain, as with anything. Get a couple of red scotchbrite pads, and some wire brushes for the inside corners. I put in two short afternoons and probably have two more for sanding.

I'm going to look into a different roller applicator as I'm not that interested in the very textured look.

I have a '99 ranger. I liked that I was able to sand out rust spots, prime, and now cover with Herculiner as this will extend the life of the truck body.

I think it is worth it, Mine was ordered from ebay for 58.95. Hardware stores want 100.00 for the kit

I prepped mine for like 4 hours total:
-washed the bed and dried it
-removed all rust with a sander down to bare metal
-sanded the entire bed with 80 grit paper on a palm sander
-cleaned the bed with acetone
-sanded bed again
-cleaned bed again with acetone
-sanded again
-cleaned last time with acetone

let air dry, and put 3 thin coats of it on
it has been there for the past year, and I haul stuff pretty regularly with no problems or signs of pealing. Maybe my prep was a little overkill, but it's worked so far. I have seen a couple people's trucks where they just used that green scuffing pad that came with the kit and the liner just peeled off with in a few months
