      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 .

Tips For Fixing A Sagging Headliner?

Recommended Posts

My 97 F150 headliner is starting to let loose on the passenger side. There is a rectangle shape that is starting to develop roughly 8 inches long by 4 inches wide. I went to the local auto parts shop this AM and found a Heavy Duty Headliner/Fabric Adhesive Spray made by Permatex. I got home and started assessing the situation and am unsure if that is the correct product. The young lads at the store didn't have any helpful hints and added they've never used the product. I did a test spray and looks like great stuff shooting out of it and I really don't care to have my gray headliner turn yellow in that corner. I've read on the web that fabric glue will work and hold better than the actual headliner adhesive. Any other suggestions or experience?

Headliner can be a pain. What usually happens is the foam core just keeps crumbling apart and the newly glued fabric just pulls free again and again and again. The only way I've found to really help is to either replace the entire headliner, or pin it up so at least it's out of your hair. Auto parts stores usually sell "saggy stoppers" which are basically a thumbtack with a screw shaped pin instead of straight. These can twist into the headliner and usually hold. Hold better than glue anyway. Looks like hell still, but it keeps it out of your hair. The only other thing that I know of that works is total replacement. It's been a number of years since I had to do this but that's all that worked for me in the past. Couldn't hurt to try the fabric glue, but if the core is foam like in my experiences, it will likely pull free again. It's usually the foam that is deteriorating rather than the fabric.

Once it starts to fall away from the foam backing it's about done for. Best to remove the whole panel and replace the fabric. Not too hard to do. You can replace it with just about any heavy fabric. Upholstery supply stores may have the correct foam backed fabric also. Just spray on the glue and work the fabric into place, fold the edges over. You can glue the edges onto the backside with hot glue, trim it up and reinstall.
