Herculinter Brush-on Bedliner: Do-it-Yourself Kit

Whether you use your truck for work or play, your truck bed leads a rough life and gets very little respect for a job well done. But you can protect your pickup truck bed or Jeep/Bronco tub from scratches and rust with an affordable do-it-yourself brush-on bedliner kit from Herculiner -- for years of heavy duty use.

The kit includes everything you'll need to do the job yourself:

  • one gallon of Herculiner textured polyurethane coating (covers one 6-ft. truck bed with two coats)
  • one application brush
  • two rollers
  • one roller handle
  • one abrasive cleaning pad
  • one can opener
  • detailed instructions for priming your truck bed and applying the liner

NOTES: Before you start the project, it is strongly advised that you purchase one Quart of Xylene, Acetone or MEK (to finish the prep work by deglazing the surface of the truck bed before coating), an extra quart of Herculiner (just in case), some chemical-resistant rubber gloves, a stir stick (or use a drill with a paint mixing attachment), a paint tray and some rags, 2" wide blue painters tape for masking off areas.

Xylene can also be used to remove the Herculiner product if it spills or gets on your skin.

For faster results from roughing up the surface before you apply Herculiner, consider using the sanding attachment on your drill.
