      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 .

Repainting my sled

Recommended Posts

Last season I rolled my sled and demolished my hood. I found a used one in decent shape. However, I would like to repaint it and put on new decals and don’t know where to start on preping it. How do I easily remove the old decals? Do I need to sand down the whole hood to remove the old paint or just the rough spots? And what type of primer should I use, will any do?

I’ve got a pretty decent paint sprayer to use. I also figure if I’m going to go that far I want to repaint the tunnel to. Would I also need to remove all the paint from that too?

Heat gun works great for taking off decals,don't get it too hot though doesn't take much. If the glue doesn't come off with the decals lacquer thinner removes it fairly quick. No need to remove all the paint just needs to be scuff sanded to give the topcoat something to etch to. Wouldn't go with anything more aggressive than 360 grit and the maroon plastic scuff pads work great for getting into the grooves where paper can't reach well. Use a self etching primer being you are painting the tunnel and that'll be fine for the hood too. I'd highly advise using a sealer coat before painting also.
