      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 .

Rust removal on trailer

Recommended Posts

I have an older Shorelander trailer with a fair share of rust. Is their a way to get rid of most or all of the rust - besides buying a new trailer, of course? Are there any chemicals (ie Super Iron Out, Naval Jelly, etc) that would work for a broad application? Or is the only way to get of the rust is to sand, prime and paint?

Thanks.

The best way would probably be to get a wire brush attachment for a disc grinder or drill and then go to town. Clean the rust off and then get a good primer and quality paint and redo it like that. I think this sounds like the best method for the amount of rust you mentioned.

Sandblasting works great for this. You can find a couple of places in the phone book or if you have an air compressor , a small portable blast unit can be purchased at a place like Northern Tool. Then follow this up with a good anti-rust primer sealer and a coat of enamel paint.

another way that they use alot on cars is acid and water water keeps it from bein to strong keep a hose handy to rinse off the acid. its alot faster and doesnt miss any like sanding will miss the heart of the cancer.

If you cannot use acid, sandblasting is the only way to get a half decent job.
If you have paint bubbling up a lot with rust underneath, try using a pressure washer very close to area, it will peel all loose paint, then you can sandblast.
