      I just noticed that Gerald moderates this forum, lets hope he doesnt get sick of the world laughing at his Hootus and decide to delete the thread. :shoot: Someone might need to forward this to Herculiner like Flyguy mentioned to see what there response is. They might send Gerald some free herculiner for all his troubles with there product. :bounce:

      This kind of reminds me when Gofast, Gerald, and myself went out to 380 (360?) for a trail trip. Gerald had brought some waterproof trousers (clothing) for when he got stuck in the creek he could throw that on and keep his leather interior clean. Well guess what he did? Yep you guessed it he got stuck and plunged right into the creek without the waterproof clothing he had brought. Kind of like him not wearing that one pair of latex gloves he had. So now he has Herculiner on his Hootus and he got the leather muddy. I think that I would start putting post-it notes on your leather seats and possibly your hootus so that these things dont happen again. :D i really needed this laugh.

      I just read in an ad of Herculiner, that this stuff never gets slippery, not even when wet. This could get pretty inconvenient for Hercules.

      I really think this subject is starting to take up way too much bandwidth, don't you? Do Rick a favor. Don't you people have to go to work or something?

      I am leaving now for my therapuedic weekend on the river float tubing trip. What happens to this thread depends on how I see you've treated me when I get back to read the posts ;)

      BTW, I'll make sure I don't get a Firestone tube, and while I am at I I'll see if I can fit a 31" on it :D

      One last post on the herculiner situation

      Heard a new song the other day:

      The herculiner song (sung to the tune of "All Star")


      Somebody once told me Herculiner was sticky
      Its not the easiest stuff to remove.

      I was looking kind of dumb with my finger and my thumb
      stuck to the end of my Hoo-ootus

      Well the years start coming and the stuff ain't leavin'
      And I feel so bad that I want to start heavin'
      It doesn't make sense that this stuff's so sticky,
      you get it on your hand and you get it on your d*cky.

      So much to do, so much to see
      But I can't go public with this on me.
      And it hurts so much when I go
      such a great pain you'll never know.

      Chorus:

      Hey Now, Herculiner, can you help me get clean,
      Hey Now, Herculiner, can you get this off me.
      Its so sticky and rough,
      Even turpentine won't get it off.


      It was sticky, and then it got harder
      It was a dumb move, and then I got smarter
      All I needed was to wear those gloves
      Now I don't know if I'll ever make love.

      The rocker panels look so neat,
      But the stuff don't belong on my meat.
      My thing's on fire, how about yours
      I really don't like it cause it feels so course.

      Chorus:

      Hey Now, Herculiner, can you help me get clean,
      Hey Now, Herculiner, can you get this off me.
      Its so sticky and rough,
      Even turpentine won't get it off.


      Somebody once mentioned I should guard my extension
      I should wear the rubber gloves that I have.
      But I was in a hurry, had to go in a scurry
      So I made a beeline to the lav.

      Well time went on and I tried all the cures
      But all I got was some ribbin' from my peers.
      It doesn't make sense that this stuff's so sticky,
      you get it on your hand and you get it on your d*cky.

      So much to do, so much to see
      But I can't go public with this on me.
      And it hurts so much when I go
      such a great pain you'll never know.

      Chorus:

      Hey Now, Herculiner, can you help me get clean,
      Hey Now, Herculiner, can you get this off me.
      Its so sticky and rough,
      Even turpentine won't get it off.

      :D :D :D :D :D

      Well Gerald, look on the bright side. If your floating down the river and all of a sudden you hit rapids when you don't expect it. This of course causing you to fall out of raft and being rushed down the river. Then if you get turned upside down and dragged along the rocks on the bottom, you know that at least Mr. Hootus is well protected.

      Hey have fun on your trip and we would never think of talking about you while you are gone, (with you being the moderator and all!!!).

      Everybody wants to know......

      Which box does he mark on the census form now?

      Caucasian ( )
      Some Caucasian ( )
      Mostly Caucasian ( )
      Caucasian, except Hootus ( X )


      This is really sounding like a cross between Woody Allen & Steve Martin.

      I was born a poor white boy, except for my Hootus......... :)

      Good Luck.

      best wishes from "down under"

      Mr Jarrett will have the sympathy of all Australians.He can be assured of international help at the highest level to help him with this dreadful predickament.
      Some wag posted this on Ford Diesel Com and he can be assured he is getting a lot of sympathy there as well.Hope it comes off soon!

      I just went to their web site and on the main page there were three things that just made me bust up.

      1. Well, you asked for it!
      Now you have it . . .HERCULINER in two new colors!
      Gray and Red
      How about...just do the other parts in matching colors?

      2. HERCULINER can be used on just about
      any surface! Click here to find out more!
      I'm not touching this one.

      3.We want to hear YOUR Story!
      Send us your comments and pictures!
      I dare you to send this one in!!!!!


      I'm still trying to figure out what the heck you were doing p#@@ing that close to your explorer. What if you get some on it...I don't think the explorer would like that.

      Q: How tough is HERCULINER?
      A: HERCULINER won’t chip, flake or peel and will withstand UV rays, gasoline, oil chemicals, solvents and acid. It can withstand years
      of heavy duty use.


      Q: How can I remove HERCULINER once it's applied?
      A: You can use Xylene while product is still wet, but if it dries, it's permanent.

      Q: What happens if I get HERCULINER on my hands?
      A: Clean off immediately with Xylene, then wash hands with soap and water.

      Q: Can I use HERCULINER Coating for other uses?
      A: Yes, the HERCULINER Coating can be used on an array of surfaces from concrete to plastic as well as an undercoating to ramp
      coatings, etc. Just click on the "Instructions" icon on this page.

      Well it looks like you're "SOOL". I'm just glad it's you, not me.

      Here are some of the MSDS from the product....
      Health Hazards (Acute and Chronic):
      Skin Contact: May cause blistering on contact

      Biodegradability: NOT Biodegradable
      Now 20 years after you pass, It's still there!!!

      • Test doubtful surfaces with HERCULINER beforehand.

      • Remove any over-spray immediately with Xylene or Acetone. HERCULINER is very difficult to remove once cured.

      • Clean area to be repaired and rough up surrounding HERCULINER with 60-grit sandpaper so that the new application can get a good grip.
      Did you do that?????
