      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 .

Painting/Resurfacing Steel Trailer

Recommended Posts

bgfish00

Does any one have any recommendations for Painting or Resurfacing a Steel Trailer. My Deck is staring to get a bit rusty after a couple of years. Would like to bring back a decent appearance. Would those truck bedliner kits work? Any Help appreciated. I would like to keep the effort and $ to a minimum.

Thanks

I will be applying Herculiner to my trailer when it starts getting rusty. I've done the back of my truck and it is great stuff. Extremely durable and no maintenance. I just bought another quart to do the racks on my ATV. You can get the kit from Menards for under $50 when they have the rebate deal going, the kit does the entire bed of a full size truck easily. I think they have different colors available now also.

I've used Herculiner type compounds for various applications and have had GREAT luck with it. Looks good, very chip resisitant and seems to last forever...

My only suggestion would be to make sure ALL the rust has been neutralized or removed AND the surface is 100% dry before you apply the product. No sense in just applying a "band-aid" over a bad spot. Fix the problem before you make it pretty.

Like Moose Hunter said, make sure ALL the rust is removed. Applying a product over the top of active rust seals any moisture in and can actually accelerate the corrosion. Sandblasting is probably the most effective way. Otherwise sanding and using one of many various abrasive wheels designed for that, works too. Also, make sure that you put an acid-etch or at least an epoxy primer over the bare metal. The bedliners will stick, but they provide no corrosion resistance and if there is a chip in the future, it will rust again and spread quickly.
