Durabak Time

ok, finally got round to doing the paint. The plan was to go with a "Medium Texture" this time. The YJ was full on 5 coats of textured Durabak and, although it lasted fantastic...Held up to everything including a flop on Drummond Island, it was a bitch to clean. Once cleaned, it looked like brand new but still. I wanted something durable but smoother a bit.

So it got 2 coats of textured Durabak and then 4 coats of smooth, UV stable Durabak.

Here is the first coat.



I don't remember the stages of these 2 pics.





This is a close up of what it looks like right now.



I'll pull the tape later tonight.

Can you lay that Durabak stuff over strait up paint? Or do you have to sand/prime the surface? And I'm guessing the UV stable stuff doesn't fade?

You have to scuff the paint up like anything else you are going to put on. Then clean it all with Xylene.

Yea, the UV stable stuff doesn't turn all faded and chalky like Herc and Duplicolor.

I have about 1/4 of a can of smooth left and I did 4 coats of that.

That looks good, and I need to find a new alternative to herculiner.

I was vacuuming my Jeep today and came across some flaky herculiner, so just continued vacuuming, and then realized that the herc was just completely separating from the sheetmetal underneath, and I ended up effortlessly peeling up about a 2x3 ft oval of herc with bare sheet metal underneath(even though it was primered beforehand). So they lost my business and I'll be doing something else when I do the rest of the interior and this looks like a good alternative..

Where you'd get it from and what kind of prices do they have?

Lots of different colors and the price depends on color and texture and UV stable or not.

Tape removed

Did you have to run a knife along the edge of the tape to get that edge?

Normally you don't. On this edge I did...it's still real soft. It cures via the humidity but there just isn't any right now so it's drying slow.

Anyway, normally your stuff is still fully wet when you pull the tape but I did the 2 coats of the texture yesterday so it set up more. On the places that I did not put texture (inside doors) the tape pulled up with no problems and left a good line.

IF the primer came up too, then that was your problem. The herc still stuck to what it was applied to. I have had issues with shit primer in the past...

Looking at Duraback for my YJ... How far do you think I could get with a gallon. I was hoping to do my rockers and the interior floors.

That is looking good. :thumbsup:

That's the inside of the door jam. You don't see it when the doors are closed all the way and the weather stripping is installed.
