[MUSIC PLAYING] This episode of “DIY
Tryin” is brought you by Herculiner truck bed liner. Welcome to “DIY Tryin.” My hands hurt. What do you do when the
bed liner’s coming out of your truck? Apparently, you peel it
out with your fingertips. Yes. Because that’s what
we’ve been doing. I use tools. You’re the one who had to use
your hands, man, because it’s natural. So this week, you’re excited. You’re getting a new
bed liner, or we’re in the process of putting in
a new bed liner in your truck. Right, so my beater,
the [? Baja ?] beater, the long suffering–
I think at this point, I’ve carried like
30,000 pounds of debris. But the bed liner, which is
probably as old as you are– I would not be surprised. –is a little– It’s not in the greatest shape. It was peeling. It was cracking. We found rust underneath it. We may have found Jimmy Hoffa
underneath it in one section. So we’ve been working with
[INAUDIBLE] this month. They challenged us to do
a DIY bed liner install with Herculiner, which is
actually the best selling roll on bed liner material
sold in America today. And guess what? What? It’s all about prep. I hate prep. [LAUGHS] So as you can see from our body
suits, black gloves, and other [INAUDIBLE] scaring
stuff, we are almost ready to start applying
the Herculiner in the bed. But we wanted to go
over the prep process before we started
daubing and rolling. Yeah, so Herculiner,
if you want it to be as strong as a
professionally sprayed bed liner, it’s all about the prep. Yes. So first, what we did was we
pulled out Patrick’s old bed liner, which was
a real big pain. Came with the truck. And there was like
dirt behind it. We thought we were just going
to power wash it out, then fill in the holes
and the Herculiner. And then we started ripping
the old bed liner out. And then four hours later,
all the bed liner was out. Which is good. It’s good to start fresh. We took off the tail gate
and then kind of wiped out all the big dirt pieces. We wiped it down with some
detergent and some water. And then we started scrubbing. So you get like a Scotch-Brite
pad and the Herculiner kit comes with the rollers. We augmented that with
some 80 grit foam sanding blocks and some additional
coarse Scotch-Brite pad-like materials. Just sand, sand,
sand sand, sand. Basically, you want
to remove the shine. You want it to be dull. And once that’s done,
we Shop-Vac’d it out. We wiped it down again. And because we can’t
buy xylene or MEK in the state of California
because apparently it will turn our
brains into goo, we have industrial maintenance
coating cleaner, which also will probably
turn your brain into goo but we can buy in the
state of California. And that’s to basically
prep the surface by removing all the grease and
smudge and stuff like that. Be careful with what you
use to thin out Herculiner or to prep for it, because some
things will actually not work. Like just because it works
for house paint doesn’t mean it’s going to
work for Herculiner. Use xylene if you can, because
that’s what’s recommended. And we also taped
off everything, because you don’t want
the Herculiner going in all the holes. Yeah, so we put
down plastic to make sure we wouldn’t get this–
because this stuff, Herculiner, will basically be
permanently attached to your skin or
anything it dries on. So we masked off
stuff in the area. We filled in bolt
holes with blue tape. We masked off
areas we don’t want to become permanently
covered with bed liner. Be generous with this stuff. And make sure you pull
it off as soon as you’ve applied the second coat. Don’t let the second coat
dry with this on there. And we should point
something out. Hm? The first coat is
going to look awful. Think of it as a primer. It’s the second coat that makes
it look money, just saying. All right, let’s do it. So your prep’s done. You’re ready to
apply Herculiner. You get the can out. Do not shake the can. Don’t put it in a paint shaker
down at your local paint shop. Contents under pressure. You don’t want to explode
this all over the operation. But you do you want to
mix your Herculiner can a whole lot, because there’s
a bunch of little plastic bits in there and you
want them dispersed. Michael’s using one of those
plastic stirring things on the end of a metal stick
that goes into a drill. They are so awesome for
mixing thick stuff like this. All right, applying– first,
grab your two inch brush and kind of dab the
corners and the edges. You just want to
dab, dab, dab and get stuff that’s the roller’s
not going to be able to get. A couple resources
on the internet suggested that I daub the low
spots in between the ridges on the base of the bed,
the bottom of the bed. And I’m actually
really glad I did because getting the roller into
those little nooks and crannies is just about impossible. Onto rolling– first, do
all the sides and such. And then you can go ahead
and go to the floor. Make sure that you
plan out your route. Yeah, this is a real measure
twice, cut once situation. Because if you don’t
do that spot up there at the front of
the bed completely before you paint
the rest of the bed, you’ll be doing crazy cat
moves, hanging over the side, standing on buckets
just to reach that spot. Ask us how we know. That first coat
you want to let’s sit for one to four hours. Basically, when it’s
not tacky, you’re ready to put on the second coat. Make sure you put that second
coat on within 24 hours if you want it to actually
stick to the first coat. And let it dry for five
or six days before you drop a load of concrete into it. But after about 24 hours,
you’re good to go for light use. Cool. But while it is drying, if
you have left over Herculiner, you can use it for over 101
ways their website says, herculiner.com. You went kind of nuts. I did go crazy with this. I put it on the bottom of my
shoes, the top of a table, a phone case, a skateboard,
because why not? All delightfully improved though
the glorious tactile coating from our sponsor, Herculiner. So much traction
on that phone case. So much traction on
those shoes, dude. Oh, my goodness! Look at this. It’s amazing. This actually looks a lot better
than it did and actually looks really– I got say, I
had the same reaction as most the internet does. Because you get first layer on,
and you go, [GASP] what was I thinking? And then the second
layer goes on. And you’re like, hey,
I saved a lot of money. And I did this myself. So probably our
best idea with this was disposable coveralls,
because this stuff gets everywhere. Yes, Tyvek bunny suits and
latex gloves or nitrile gloves or whatever kind of
gloves you want to use, because if you get this on
your pants or your work books and it dries there,
it’s going to be a semi-permanent part
of that clothing. Speaking of which,
if your spouse– say your husband’s kind of
aggro about when the dog pees on the driveway– Get some plastic
sheets to put down. –just in case you knock
over or the wind actually knocks over a gallon
of Herculiner. Yeah, not a great situation. But this was a
whole lot of work. But the results look amazing. And we saved a whole bunch of
money by doing it this way. I’m excited. We’re going to cure for a week. And then next weekend, I going
to throw 3,000 or 4,000 pounds of concrete that
used to be known as my driveway in
the back of it. And we’ll see how it holds up. If you’re curious about
that, do us a favor. Tweet @DIYtryin, @palmdalian,
@patricknorton, or– You can find us at
youtube.com/diytryin or diytryin.com. Comment down below. Say evil things. Say nice things–
actually, say nice things. If you want to be evil,
keep it to yourself. Because you know, golden rule. Yeah. Yeah. Do unto others as you would
have them do unto you. And we hope you will share this
show with your friends, family, acquaintances, co-workers, and
maybe that guy down the street with the ugly truck. Should we paint my truck next? [LAUGHS] We’ll give it a few weeks. I’m Patrick Norton. I’m Micheal Hand. Thanks for watching “DIY Tryin” Oh my god, this is the best. (SINGING) You do the hokey pokey
and you turn yourself around. That’s what it’s all about. Right foot. Oh my god!

    Plasti Dip or Elastiwrap it 🙂

    Preferably Elastiwrap, 'cause it supposedly takes less coats to do and is slightly more affordable.  2 basecoats of White Lightning followed by a top coat of pearlizer would be good 😉 😉

    i have stuff like that in my truck (here we call it a ute).  its called rhino liner, they spray it in and it gets to like 1/4 inch thick and never comes off. had mine on there for 10 years now, definitely recommend liners in all trays, makes it last so much longer.

    Hey if your going to paint your truck, for dirt cheap, try "dipping" you truck!! If you don't like it, you can peel it off! Go to www.dipyourcar.com . The kit cost about $500, and you spray it on with a cheap house sprayer. The results are pretty close to professionally painted! And you don't have to mask anything off, well maybe in this case, you might want to keep it off bed liner.. Since I don't know how it will react to it.

    I did this on the bed of 1971 GMC pick up long bed,probably about 10 years ago. (can't remember the brand) .I was lucky I had no paint to sand off,as I had it sandblasted it off,in prep for paint.Unfortunately it it only lasted about a year before it started peeling.So I'm skeptical,of the do it yourself kits.. I am curious to see how it holds up,a year or so from now…

    @DIY Tryin 
    How did the coating on the table work out? I've got a crappy old computer desk that's paint is rubbing off and I'm wondering if it might work to just coat it with this stuff.

    I was also thinking of using it on my Corsair 800D case. It has a few scratches that really annoy me. The origional paint has a rough, slightly bumpy texture to it that looks kind of like this liner. This looks easy enough… think it could work…?

    I just did a Herculiner 2 months ago. After 10-20 loads of 21AA Limestone and compost / Dirt.  It looks like hell and I think I have to do another application.  It is still cheaper even after the second application than Rhino liner.  Rhino = $400, Herculiner = $50 + a lot of time.   I think Herculiner is made for more casual use.
