if he didn't post pictures, why would we come to the site? I mean it is the same reason why the abortion thread is so popular! We love to see what "creativity" people come up with.

"Pictures, or it didn't happen!" Duh! :roll:


It's quite simply showing the progress of a project. The mere mention of such will get some of us want to see it. Those who can't in person will have our deadsite to check it out... and of course critique our work! :evil:

Matter'O'factly, that's juan of the reasons that I always hit the gallery at thedrambadotcom first thing. I want to see "what's out there". Many a time picking up ideas for my own projects! :cool:

To be honest, no grin. :neutral:

I am happy it is almost done finally, but it's been a hella lot of work! Still need to do yet another coat tomorrow. :-s

How many coats to do you on at this point?

And did you use a brush? Roller? Combination?

How is the bedliner to work with?

Are you drunked? :???:

Anyway, "it says" you must do 2 coats and that the juan gallon in the kit is enough to do so. Though the average truck bed ins't 9 feet long, the gallon is supposed to also cover the bed sides and I am not doing the gates! I "ran over it" twice yesterday and will do another coat today, but there's less than a quart left in the can. May have to go buy another half a gallon since I do want a thicker cover on it! :neutral:

The brush is needed for the tight areas, corners and such, then the special roller is used for the most part. Found some little spots where it didn't get good enough, so I "sliced" an extra roller to run over the "grooves". I'll post a picture of it later. You "dab" with the brush instead of "swiping" as you'd do if you were painting. Otherwise it would defeat the purpose of the texture. It's messy and sticky. That's why you see the "skirt" around the truck as well as a sheet of plastic on the work table. :worry:

After weighing various options, decided to go with the Herculiner for a few reasons. The first choice, though I considered it to be the best, was just way too expensive at some $2000. Hell, I didn't pay that much for the whole truck!!! Other choices didn't have a "palpable" example to compare with and/or those that I got to see/touch up close looked to be really thin and more cosmetic rather than utilitarian. Plus I have had very good results with the Herculiner, on the trailer (twice), the Radio Flyer wagon, the cargo area on the Jeep (RIP), and in the Plump Truck's treasure chest area. Not to mention the cost of around $90 for the gallon kit. The first time I used it the Peep-Boys had it on special at $60. The "half-gallon" or so, that can be bought by itself is only $30. :cool:

Wow that was brutal grammar on my part. In my minor defense we spent the entire day at a grand-nephew's wedding in Temecula (90 degrees and no alcohol, so I was not "drunked") and I was rather weary when those lines were written.
And as "someone" recently said, they follow this site to see what is being done to the English language.
