    Default No more wet lockers.

    When the carpet is soaked it pulls out easier and brings more adhesive with it in my experience. My total time was only a few hours tops. I used a razor scraper then acetone to get the remaining adhesive off.

    I'm wondering if hot/boiling water may be the ticket? Also an off-season plan.
    Old enough to know better, young enough to do it anyway.

    I went with Herculiner because it was $40 cheaper than the Duplicolor. It is still going strong, no rips or tears. No mold, no stinky mess. Definitely buy the gallon if you plan to coat the sides. The herculiner instructions say to thin it with Xylene. Xylene removes adhesive/grease very well, but is apparently hard on fiberglass. I never needed to thin my liner as the coats were quick and temps were cool. But inna few small spots I did use Xylene to clear some built up glue. It didn't seem to harm the fiberglass, bit I spilled about a cup on my swim deck and it permanently stained the factory rubber mat. I would use caution with any strong solvent around fiberglass.

    pulled up the bottom carpet in one of my lockers so far, pulled off easy, not a lot of glue left behind... only did maybe 5 minutes of scraping and cleaned with shopvac.. i'll probably still try to glue it up a bit more.

    Heads Up, if you're in Canada.. the Dupli-Color bed liner is on sale for $90 reg $129 at Canadian Tire..

    i'm reading mixed reviews on it though, although it's not taking the abuse an actual truck bed liner would take.
