Default Rhino Lining the Interior

Ok, well i cheaped out and got the more affordable "Rustolium bed liner", but either way the end product is the same. I had been planning to do so further down the road, but my mother complained that the carpets reeked of mold, so I figured I might as well have her pitch in and buy me the stuff so I could get it done now.

Started early in the morning, getting the seats and carpet out was no problem. Took pictures of what it looked like then.

Changed the oil and filter in it too after that.

Also decided to take out those white rubbery mats glued to the floor. Me and a friend worked for a good hour getting them off with a pair of chisels. It left behind a lot of the sticky residue, but the liner should have no problem sticking to that.

Will keep progress as the process continues

anyway, heres the pics from before the mats were scraped out....literally no rust...shweet

So are you just doing the rhino lining with no carpet over it again?

I know people have used it to cut down on the noise. Never before seen it used as a permanent floor covering.

Yeah, permanent covering. Carpets were already soaked and moldy anyway. That way if i get the inside muddy again i can just pulls the seats and hose it down. Me and my friend did the same to his jeep and it worked out great.

as for the chipping, i hope not, but im doubling the coats just to be sure.

btw how did this get moved to the vehicle snapshot forum?

That Colorado driver that was on her trying to race people did this and at first I thought it was a good idea but then I saw the pile of air fresheners he had to keep in his truck becuse of the smell from the liner. I would do this on a Jeep maybe because it would be open but any vehicle that closes up and sits in the heat might cuase problems for you. Why don't you just put the factory plastic/rubber floor line in?

I'm curious how it turns out in the end, so post some pics as soon as you're done. Can't stand carpet in trucks, such a nightmare for a truck. I'm suscribed as well.

i wonder if u paint over the undercoating with like por-15 or some sort of strong paint, it will keep it from stinking?

I could care less about the smell, my windows are almost always down anyway. and even then, when my friend put his in, it smelled for a week, but then it went away. If its really bad ill just check out that por-15 stuff the guy above me spoke about. As for the factory plastics, I don't have any, nor know where to get any. I will put down some big rubber mats afterward however.

Im gunna pull the wires up and paint under them. probably wrap some electrical tape around em so they dont show up so much.

as for thickness, i have 2 quarts. its a small cab, so one quart should cover, then after it dries ill put up another for good measure.

Couldnt get to it today, was a bit busy. Tomorrow ill probably have some time for a final clean and to lay the first coat down. Hope it all goes will. Wont forget the pics either.

por-15 is garbage for how much it costs my dad put it on his frame and it started fadeing and peeling off even after we did a ton of prepwork for it and applyed it exactly how the directions said to do so ill never buy that stuff personally oh and for the wires try like one of those rubber floor wire covers they use in like auditoriums and stuff

OK, finished stripped the rest of that rubbery stuff out and put down the first coat. Doesnt look as textured at the herculiner my friend used, but its good enough for me. The smell is pretty strong, like a petrolium/laquer kinda smell. But I'm sure it will fade over time.

This was only the first coat, and i didnt even use all of the can. Just one tip, mix like CRAZY before you pour any into the paint pan, i thought i did well enough, but it turned out that the heavier black gunk stuck to the bottom, while the clear hardener floated up on top.

Also, after applying all of that stuff, I'm feeling pretty lightheaded and dizzy. Probably a combination of the liner and the crazy heat outside. Either way, I would suggest a mask or something. Also, ALWAYS wear gloves. I found out this before when we did my friends jeep. For a good week I had kids at school asking "what the hell is that stuff on your hands?".



Anyway, heres the pics: First 2 are of it after i peeled off the mat, and the next 2 are of the first coat (sorry about the bad lighting, sun was setting)

Like I said before it looks sweet but I am still not sure if its a great idea with the smell and all. Let us know how it all works in the end. I hope what you said in the above quote doesn't happen while you are driving LOL.
