    Bedline jeep pics

    I'm thinking about bedlining the interior and exterior of my old CJ7. Please post pics of yours and tips. I've read the article posted here on WAL
    http://www.4x4xplor.com/herculiner.html about how to do it.

    Any in white?

    I bedlined my Cj7 with the Duplicolor Kit. It took a lot longer than expected and didn't come out as great as I thought. When you do it, make sure you mix the bedliner with a drill if you can for a good amount of time, I think my directions stated 20minutes but I failed to do so which caused it to come out crappy. Spray on looks a lot cleaner imo.

    I plan to do it to my JK eventually but I will have it professionally done.

    This is our 95 YJ... we used Monstaliner and it turned out great. Did it 3 years ago and still looks like new. No chips or such. Prep work is key.

    Did Herculiner. Time consuming but easy. I think about a year ago. No issues so far. I used foam ear plugs to put in all the bolt holes to protect the threads. There's some pics in my build thread http://wayalife.com/showthread.php?3...Thread-1999-WJ. I think spray on is cleaner, but we're happy with the Herculiner.

    Thanks Peak. I was thinking what you said might happen to me if I tried it.

    WJCO,
    Great tips. How much time did you spend prepping and applying the herculiner?

    I don't remember exactly, but I think about six hours. I used a palm sander for a lot of it with 220grit I think. then on the curves, just by hand. Then a lot of acetone on a rag. Each coat took about 30 minutes I think, 2 coats total. Has to dry between coats. I did it in the summer. I think I allowed and hour between coats but don't remember for sure. I found it easier to brush it on rather than roll it on. The chemical smell was in there for about 2-3 weeks, fyi.

    This stuff is supposed to be good. If you get the right kit it comes with the gun and you spray it on. I have zero experience with it though.

    That helps me a lot. Just trying to decide if it is worth it to do or pay someone else.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
