Coat Your Bed! Put Herculiner on Your Truck Bed in 3 Easy Steps

Step 2: APPLY

After waiting 3-4 hours, check to make sure the Herculiner is no longer tacky. Remix your remaining Herculiner and go around and apply a second detail coat to your bed. Once you're finished, then recoat the entire bed with the roller. We applied the second coat extra-heavily in the foot areas and in the back where tools go.

Brent decided that it would be a good idea to also hit the top of the body where his hard top connects.

The best thing to do is to remove your masking tape immediately after the second coat has been applied. Doing this will make it much easier than later, because the Herculiner will seal the tape to itself.

This is probably the messiest part of the job. Not only is the masking tape sticky, but you have Herculiner on the tape, as well. I must have gone through 8 gloves removing the tape.
Step 3: DRY

Once you're done, the truck will need to sit for about 12 hours or so in order for the Herculiner to fully cure before putting your seats, etc. back in the truck.

That's pretty much it! By tomorrow you will have one of the toughest truck beds around. It looks great and it's durable. For a hundred bucks, you simply can't beat Herculiner.
