i used herculiner for one of my jeeps (fiberglass), it was easy and help up nicely but that shit was scratchy as hell. I rembember scraping my knuckles on the floor a few times.

i personally wouldnt do it again unless it was a smooth finish.

good luck

herculiner has small rubber granuals or whatever in them so im not sure if a smooth roller would work or not.

i would do a test spot first and see what happens.

The duplicolor rattle cans spray nice and the finish is smoother but it does not hold up to the rough stuff. I sprayed my lower portion of the truck and the rear bumper that I built for it and it is not holding up to the tire spray and hits to the bumper. It is a work truck and the bumper gets abused but I am not happy with it. I rolled herculiner on a previus bumper and you can't chip that stuff if you tried. it was on there for 6 years and looked new. go roll on not spray.......

We were not happy with Herculiner in the bed of my son's truck. It was like sandpaper and it ran down the side of his tan truck with black streaks every time it rained.

I used Duplicolor undercoating (rattle can) in the bed and wheel wells of my Samurai last summer. Not too bad. I put it on too thick all at once because I was in a hurry and it took forever to cure. It is wearing through in the footwells already but that is probably from putting it on too thick and it wasn't fully cured before I used it. Multiple thinner coats I think would have been better. If I had to do it over, I would probably spend the little extra and do the Duplicolor bedliner instead.
