      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Getting the "goo" from stickers off

Recommended Posts

Uncle Grump

Hi All

I tryed searching this forum's archive to see if this had been discussed previously - but got no hits....

I just bought a pickup and topper, and the hatch on the topper (window) has some stickers I want to remove - and the glue. I don't want to leave any residue which will attract dirt. The sticker looks like it will peel off.

I also don't know if the window is glass or some sort of plastic - so I want to make sure the cleaner won't cause the window to
fog or haze.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

UG

I think WD-40 works good for this kind of job unless someone knows better.

There are products that remove that stuff. When I bought my house the previous owners must have had a stake in 3M. They used stick on hangers for everything. We used a product called Goof-off. Worked great.

What has worked best for me is to heat the sticker up with a hair dryer and then peel it off. Remove any remaining adhesive with WD-40 like above.

There is some stuff called Goo Gone that you can buy in the cleaning supplies section of the grocery store that can take off all kinds of sticky stuff. Comes in a plastic bottle, and is a yellow liquid. I started using it years ago when the kids put some crayons in the washload - all white - several Dad dress shirts - Dad fuming....

I've had good success in removing stickers from all sorts of unlikely places with this stuff, so that's my vote.

Bug and Tar remover, soak up the glue area, let it sit and use a plastic putty spreader or something like that and it will come off nicely, you might want to try it on a small spot on the window, I don't think it will hurt but you might want to make sure first.

A little gas on a rag works, too.

Citristrip, Un-Do, Un-Du. Ad-Med, 3M, ReMove, Uni-Solv, DeStix ...

I was in a pinch last night and used gasoline. It worked excellent on removing the leftover glue.

Goo gone is good, but the best I've found is called UNISOLVE. You can find it at medical supply stores.
The stuff is used by hospitals to remove the sticky glue left after removing bandages so it's non toxic (I think).
When I ran a computer depot that refurbed PC's we'd get equipment back with stickers all over them and with a heat gun and a little uni-solve soaked in we could get any label/sticker and the glue off.

Try a single edge razor after peeling the decal off, use a hair drier to heat the decal and peel it off first. Mike

It's a little expensive but graffiti remover works great! Not shure on actual brand names but you can pick it up at most paint stores.
This is the only thing I have found that will take off the bugs that are cemented to your bumper and license plate after a long nights haul to a lake.

Isopropyl alcohol and a single edge razor will work. We use it when we are taking labels off of stuff in the lab. The higher the % of alcohol the better (99% rather than 70%) or nail polish remover will also work.

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.

      hummm, hadn't heard a thing?

      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.

      I still hope it's double!  I just went over the map with my brother and talked about our options.  We have enough places to go for sure.  It's always fun planning and talking about past hunts. I put out the question to the other two guys about staying in camp vs the house.  We'll see what they decide.  I hauled our "cabin" home from Ely today so we should have plenty of room if they wanna camp.

      Did a few off season projects waiting for Ice. - Underwater camera, Fish Finder, Wheel house mods and the latest converting a 2 cycle Jiffy Lite 90 to an ION battery auger. Got the auger off Craiglist for $10, Drill for $15. Second stage of gear box is a 5 to 1 reduction so got the auger blade to turn at about 250 RPM which I feel is an ideal speed. Gear reduction also doubled the torque of the motor drive. Planning to use the Dewalt 20V ION battery as I already have charger and now converting one of the 1.5 AH batteries to either 9 or 12 AH.  If anyone needs a mid 80's Jiffy Lite 90 motor and clutch PM me. Has great compression, never tried to start it.  Price somewhere between free and a gift. If you did a project this summer, would you care to share them? DJ ION Auger HB.mp4  << Click link for video

      You may want to consider #3 ; Rapala Jiggin Raps, or drop shoting. They both have been putting some nice size suspended slabs topside under some breezy conditions as of late. Fishing sure was downright epic the last week for all species. To bad it looks like "global warmering" is coming to an end for this year, was awesome while it lasted...... Those are some decent perch panman54. LOL!

      Pretty remote and flat back there. I haven't been on that exact shoreline but I bet you can pull a boat up there quite easily.

      I didnt hear how the second day went yet.  The long term average is 8% success up to 10% during the 2 deer era.  so 5.7% isnt bad for day 1.   Cooler weather will hopefully help us second weekenders. I havent seen much for rubs or scrapes here yet, should be starting any day.
