    I've done both the Herculiner method and the Flexane 80 method. Herculiner was easier and cheaper, but it peeled off easily. The Flexane was better but more difficult to apply and far more expensive.

    Flexane ABW looks good! How is the flexane holding up? I have 300 hours on my 29 and they are starting to show cord. I operate out of class d airport with long taxis. 🤦Do you have any interesting in coating mine?

    Ive tried both as well and agree that herculiner is much easier to apply, cheaper, and Ive found that as long as you hit the tires with 40 grit before application the herculiner sticks quite well. I learned to fly tailwheel, off airport, and continue to fly the same tires - recoated a few times obviously hahaha

    Anyone know someone who I can hire to put the Flexane 80 on my ABWs I can ship them to you? They are just starting to show cords?
