over the last week i have been redoing the racks and bumper on my foreman. i went to a rinoliner shop and the di*k said it would be about $250 to have them do it .so there was no f-in way im spending that much. i had a 1/2 can of hurculiner lefr from my wrangler and scuffed up everything with a scotch bright pad and put 3 coats on . i think it came out pretty good . if anyone wants to do this i have a few tips
1)stir the can every time you dip the brush in the can (all the traction stuff sinks quick)
2)ware gloves (my hands are as black as the ace of spades lol)
3)if you get drips keep wiping them with the brush( my first coat i had a few drips and after thay dried i used a knife to cut them off)
4)work in the hot sun and it dryes in like 2 hours then repete (i did 3 coats on most of the racks but 4 on the front bumper and where my storage sits)
i hope this helps someone ...........RICH

thanks for the pat on the back guys! went out for a 20+ mile ride today in mud,rocks,trails and lots of water.the racks and bumper held up awsome.when i got stuck in the mud i stood up on the back rack and didn't slip once (even with realy muddy boots ) one of the best things ive ever done to my foreman ! ...also i got pushed from a foreman 400 and the bumpers where thay touched didnt chip or leave a mark !!!!!!!
not a chance dude thats as clean as thay ever will be lol thanks man
would that be good for the frame?
i wouldnt do it there are too many nuts that are welded to the frame you would have to take a tap and clean all the threds out !
if it was me i would just prime and paint the frame
its holding up great except there the winch cable has rubbed threw from side pulls but all in all im happy .
you can use steel wool, fine sand paper or a wire wheel to scuff up the racks
if i was to do it again i would do 1 more coat ....there are some thin spots i missed
yea it will work....but i never used it before so ill let others that have used it comment ..
i think 1qt will be cutting it close but if you do thin coats you will have enuff but ........that kinda defeats the purpose IMO
yes i used the herculiner and i brushed it on with them cheep chip brushes from harborfraight brush per coat .
i had a half can lying around from my wrangler and the rino liner guy wanted $250 to do the 3 pieces (2 racks and the front bumper) i said **** that ....ill do it myself
yeai knew thay can be painted but ....who has the time lol
i think ill get qt can and put on 1 more thin coate before winter sets in .
i dont think armorall is a good idea ......if i get up on the racks when in deep mud i dont want to slip off lol . ever armorall youre seat ........enuff said .
its rubbery , you can dig youre fingernils into it
as for it being sharp ........i dont think it will cut you but it will scratch you if you rub up againt it .....
looks good man . just use alcohol or laquer thinner to wipe the surface down before hurculining them ...
some brake kleen leaves a oily film .......go rob the rubbing alcohol from the bathroom .....but dont drink it
sure that will work (once i googld varsol) you guys overthink alot of stuff ......just use something that degreases and wont leave a oily film , starting fluid woks great
looks great and will last you for along time , congrats !!!
