Herculinered my whole bed in the Brat. Tough stuff. Easy application. Fairly economical.

I have used most of the brands over the years. My experience has been that they are all about the same. The importent thing is getting it on before the rust starts!

I had been using it every few years to reseal the floor pan. It seems to me that the seams and cracks are hard to seal and that is where the rust starts.:madder:

I say if the rust has not started then undercoat away. If rust has started you probably need to fix those areas before sealing.

Good luck,
