I used this stuff they sell at paint stores for automotive body shops. It is a 2 part epoxy system called Mar-Hyde i think. it costs $40 more than the herc liner but I think is hands down better and stronger. It is a 2 part with epoxy so by it's very design much stronger and durable than a non-epoxy system. I did the whole tub inside with three coats for $140. There's still enough to do another tub if I needed it. I sanded or etched the paint, coated with POR 15, etched the POR15 and coated with this mar-hyde stuff. It looks like a military non skid surface that they coat tank decks with. Not pretty but without rust.

check out this stuff called durabak.

they've got a decent website, too. www.nonslipcoating.com

i've looked at it, and i'm probably goin with it for the inside of my tub and some undercoating stuff like fenders. the price is nice and they sent me a sample of the stuff and it looks and feels real tough.

i also used the spray can duplicolor in some areas on the rear ambulance doors i am happy with it it is gritty and tough in the bed though i agree its too thin, stuff still slides around too much, there's not much grit to it, ive managed to nick through it with stuff, and in some areas there is a bit of flash rust not worth the money IMO i will use herculiner soon

Thanks everyone for you'r response It gave me a lot of different views on things to look at but I ended up going with dupilcolor rollon because It seemed that a lot of It was not paintable so I'm going to try a little of this and that and see what happens the worst Is I strip It again and buy some expensive stuff and redo again Remember this Is all a learning experiance If It turns out good I will let everyone no and what I did Thanks again
