I'm in the progress of clean all my floorboard right now. Didn't want carpet any more. I want to know how many people done it with the hard top on? and if any of you guys have good pics of where you spray it at and where you didn't. I want to get it done soon. And I was thinking of doing one of my co2 tank as well

I would not do it with the hard top on, it's too hard to get at things and could result in a poor application, just my 2 Cents, Larry

To the lip

I sprayed the liner all the way to the lip of the tub. (top arrow). Be sure to spray at an upward angle to get under the lip (dot area) Like I said I'm gonna spray it on about 5 times thicker in a couple of weeks.
THanks for the compliment. I'm pretty proud of how it turned out.

One suggestion. Use the smooth coating. The original rough stuff is like laying on gravel if you have to work under the dash. Durabac has smooth.

I had the tub sprayed with the hard top removed and the interrior gutted, it was sprayed up to the tub rail(where the hard top sits on the tub). The smooth textured liner is also much easier to clean than the rougher textured stuff.

Spray

I think if im lucky and get the stuff. Im going to put it on. anyone with more pic????

I sprayed mine with a schutz gun. I think you can get in the niiks and crannies better than rolling. You do have to prep better. Masking off for overspray.
Good luck. Put it on thick enough the first time , not like me where I'm gonna have to do it again. (no big deal really, maybe one weekend start to finish)

Herculiner in my 40

I did two coats when it was stripped bare and used 1 gallon and 1 quart. I will try to find picture tonite.

I used RAPTOR Bedliner kit to spray the bed and floorboards of my '79 FJ40. You mix your paint color with the liner material and spray it on with a schutz gun. My kit came with its own schutz gun. Sprayed on bedliner matches the vehicle paint pretty close. Seems pretty durable too. Bought mine at local auto paint supply store. Raptor has a website, I believe.

not the" no", but the F-no CA
I used Herculiner. I followed the instructions, had probably 20 hours into the prep and am totally unhappy with it. The texture is too coarse to clean, and after moderate use it began peeling. My buddy got a DIY kit from dupont and did his pickup bed, I would have been much happier with that, it has kind of an orange peel texture, cleans easy and is much more durable. But if I had ponied up and gotten it sprayed with line-x or something after I had done all the prep in the first place, I'd have been even better off.
