      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 .

new truck damaged

Recommended Posts

larryz

I bought an 07 truck and took it in to a shop to have a sprayed in bedliner put in. When I went to pick up the truck I found several dents in the top of the box bed rails. The owner made some calls and lined me up with a guy that does paintless dent removal. To make a long story short the guy did a pretty good job but I can still see where the dents were. The truck had approx. 400 miles on it. I have not paid anyone yet. What would you do at this point?

Its up to you what you feel comfortable with, if you dont mind the fact there are a few dings in your new truck, talk to the place that put the liner in and see if they will give the liner job to you at no charge do to the damage that was done. If you dont want to deal with the dings on your new truck, make them repair it correctly, then pay them full for the liner.

Another option is to have the spray-in liner extend over top the box rails to cover these dents. The Line-X stuff is fine enough that it looks pretty decent but I don't know what brand you had done. I've seen some trucks that have it and was surprised because I didn't think that having it over the rails would look that great on a lighter colored truck but it doesn't look too bad.

Sorry to hear about the dents, but if they hadn't done it you certainly would have scratched and dented it in time. Use this as a reason to get the rails and top of tailgate covered at their expense. You won't regret it, and there are more and more trucks around with the rails sprayed that it won't stick out.

I had my rails sprayed when I had my bed done and am very happy I did....Sounds like a good compromise.

Report them to the BBB and make them fix it.

I wouldn't report anyone who is willing to fix their mistakes. Accidents happen. Most good business owners are more then willing to fix the problem, just like this guy has done so far. One unhappy costomer is a loss of at least 10 because he/she will tell at least that many other people Give the guy a chance to make things right. Plus I would add that when you go in and talk to him be nice. I'm always more willing to make things right with someone who is nice.

Good idea scumfrog, although I just want to say BBB didn't help me out with a gas station in Wisconsin. They charged 70 cents more per gallon on E85 than what they advertised (I had already pumped the gas not looking at the pump). I took photos, documented the whole thing, talked to their sneaky manager. I'm still miffed about the thing and it was two years ago. Talk about screwy, don't get me started....

Thanks for all the responses guys. It is a Rhino Liner. I am pretty disappointed to have the first dents put in by someone other than me and at 400 miles! I am thinking seriously about bed rail caps. I realize accidents happen. But I am thinking that the bed liner cost should be discounted the cost of the dent removal plus the caps. I do not want painting done. Is this not reasonable? Thanks!

Why would you compromise at all on a brand new truck with 400 miles?

The vendor has a resposibility to make PROPER repairs, no matter the cost. That does NOT mean dentless repair, it means a body shop or the dealer.

Be nice, but be firm with this place. They have a responsibility to take care of this.

Exactly... it's what they pay insurance for.

    • MrSchrute
      Anyone on here been out on White Bear yet? I've seen a few people out off the Ramsey Beach area where the truck went through the other day but have not had a chance to venture out myself. Normally I hit the Belaire area early ice. Thanks!
    • walleyewalby
      wealthwood had1.5 last weekend, i saw no one out but 1 person on the whole west side last wsat afternoon. thi week the resorts on the north end and east are reporting decent ice. check with the resorts before you go out. id stay away from public accesses now and follow a staked road.
    • MrSchrute
      Have you fished out there before? Is it worth putting some time in on the ice? Thanks-
    • walleyewalby
      so went to go scope it out, 15 trucks on the northside, wheelers and houses out. Baxter is packed. last nights fresh snow is showing alot of active cracks too... i may wait a coujple days for blue and check out baxter instead.

      Anyone know of the ice conditions in the oak narrows area?
    • blue gill hunter
      Has anyone heard of any ice reports on Big Marine?
    • dindunuffins
      I heard  6" or so around terrys..  id figure public access must be close to the same?
    • gimruis
      Dude, seriously just stay off the ice until its safer.  No fish is worth risking your life for.

       Ice is scary on blue. I was out last weekend fishing next to open water north end is kinda sketchy still my buddy has been there every day this week. Still cant get close to the points only 1 inch there. Thicker by north end but its all older ice from the first freeze lots of cracks. The bay to the east towards the points and whole south end were wide open last sunday. Had 4 inches right next to it we fished as close to the point as we could get. We were 40-50 ft from open water and we got one eye. But ive never been so scared on ice before it was cracking very badly very loud and could feel the ice shifting. The walk back to access in the dark had my heart pounding and i didnt tjink we would make it back without one uf us goin through but we did make it.
