Default Good Stocking Herculiner Dealer

Looking for a decent Herculiner (or a near equivalent) stocking shop locally has turned out to be tougher than I thought. I finally got out of work early enough Saturday that shops were still open and so I stopped at a few places that stock Herculiner. Yes they did, but always black for truck beds. Anyone seen white or maybe grey lately? Just doing the rocker panels and not sure I'll like black. I might just end up ordering it, but I'm not sure how much I will end up using and would hate to run short and end up with one and a half Herculined rockers...

I bet you have to order, I've never seen it anywhere anything but black.

That was pretty much what I figured, checking just in case though.

Dave,

What are some of the other brands out there? This is a popular mod on 80s and over on MUD I've seen MANY threads on this. All sorts of different colors and there was even one guy that did his entire 80 in a green color. Hants had his LX done in a color other than black as well. IIRC most of the folks just ordered what they needed online and had it shipped to their door.

Yep, Line-X should be able to do the deed for ya. There is a shop on Broadway near Arapahoe IIRC, but there are many around. Having it done might be more $$$ but you ain't doing much, and it will be uber consistent.

Hadn't thought of Line-X since the most care I've ever given a pickup bed is the rubber mat this one has. I ended up finding that 4WPW sells Herculiner, although they didn't have quarts of white either. But they were willing to order it in and should have it by the middle of the week. It wasn't that expensive (I pre-paid for it), but I might just end up shelving the Herculiner for use on other stuff and do the Line-X route. I did try and pull the dents out of the rocker panels. That ended up not working quite as well as I'd hoped. The door closes cleanly and I have a somewhat shallower dent, but it's uneven and I have 3 little holes in it. The semi flat black Rustoleum that I used to paint it also looks attractive. LOL!

I actually checked out both Rhino and Line-X. The Line-X product looks nicer, and isn't "rubbery" like Rhino, and appeared much more durable.

The Line-X folks will do custom colors for you for a small fee.

I stopped by the Line-X place on Broadway, asked for a quote to do the bed of my truck. They were about a $100 more than the Rhino line guys. Not sure if there product is more superior than Rhino. I had a Rhino liner on my 2000 Silverado for 5 years never a problem.

The nice thing about having it done is the thickness of the product. If you roll it on yourself it is pretty thin. When they shoot it on you can ask for a certain thickness.

You can apply it by spray yourself fairly cheap too! Buy a used texture gun at the pawn shop or where ever! Does a great job and actually isn't to bad to clean up although the gallon of Zylene will cost more than the texture gun did!

I did roll on Hurculiner myself and think it came out allright. I paid around $150 for liner and supplies and spent a couple of days doing it.
