Anybody use Herculiner

Was thinking about taking out the carpet in my D90 and putting in Herculiner myself. Has anyone used Herc in their Rover??

I have used it on a couple truck beds and one Heep Wrangler. It's all about prep-work like any paint product. Wash out REALLY well with good degreaser like Simple Green etc, sand it really well, and I mean really well - get those corners! And then give it a really good wipe down with solvents and LOTS of fresh rags. Put two coats on.

By the way if when sanding you find any rust or sand through the paint to metal, seal it up with POR15 or something BEFORE you do the liner - just to be sure you don't create any issues down the line.

That all said, I wouldn't do it as it's so hard to "go-back" later. Ask "Horsey" if he likes the rino-liner. Ha ha.

I've used it on at least 7 customer and personal vehicles and trailers and love it. It's all about the prep work, but it will still stick pretty well to most stuff. The only drawback, like all rough bedliners, is it is hard to clean once it gets dirty. Stay way from the other do it yourself liners.

Make sure you wear gloves when you apply it!

I actually love it. It has suited my needs perfectly, and has been great when it was out in the rain, mud, etc. Just wash with a hose and good as new, and Lexoyl to make it really clean. You also don't have to worry about water pooling in corners, etc. I think prep, moderation and patience/skill are key when applying it though. If you want a truck completely original, then don't do it. If you use your truck as a tool or if it better suits your needs to have it applied, then go for it. All of these products are meant to do basically the same thing, so herc or not, you should be fine.

Thanks Gents,

I'm not too worried about being "all original." I use my D90 as my daily driver, weekend toy, hunting truck, drive around and have people stare truck, etc haha. I had Line X in my previous truck (FORD), but its pretty expensive.

Another question with the bed liner.... my truck is already very loud on the inside (no headliner), how much louder is it going to get after I take the carpet out?
