Complete exterior paintjob with rhino or herculiner
 
Hey guys I got a 1500 ram 1996 and thinking about either herculiner or rhino lining the entire exterior instead of a new paint job, I live in the country and go Down alot of pig trails and well the scratchs in my current pInt job are really bad!!! Anyone ever done this before.? Just looking for some pros and cons an ideas thanks in advance ;-)

Ya the truck looks nice do you know what he used line x herculiner or what? Sprayed on I'm guessing , I'm gonna do it myself just trying to see what works best ;-)

I've seen rocker panels and lower fender panels done this way but not a whole body.

Heck...why not?

I've seen a few on the Internet ( mostly jeeps) it's my first truck so I wanna make it pretty unique lol

Not saying it would be the only one, but I doubt many have done it. Might want to see if you can get different colors than just black, unless you want black. Then it would very likely be unique. :D

That stuff is best sprayed on bare or close to bare metal so you'll need to media blast the old paint off.

Ya I'm definitely gonna have to sand it Down ( hopefully bribe some of my buddies yo help with a case of beer) and there is different colors but I am leaning towards black since I'm redoing the interior charcoal grey and black , , I wonder if it will add a significant amount of weight to the truck , think I should do the grill of the truck? I'll be takin before and after pics this weekend to

It will add weight, how much I don't know. I wouldn't do the grille with it, its pretty thick stuff and you want good air flow through the grille.
