This Is Cool! Look What I Got In The Mail!!!!!!!!!!!! (Includes Pics)

7 posts in this topic

I figured the other day I needed some signage for my rigs (truck and boat). I click on the link Rick had in the “Outdoor Discussion, Clean-ups, and Agendas - Keep it Civil” about stickers from Fishing Minnesota, Hot Spots Outdoors and Ice leaders. I found out how easy they are to get. I bought some.

Well today I get a cardboard tube in the mail (less than 2 days). I look and it is my stickers. I had some other things to this evening, but kept those stickers on my mind. Once the chores where done, the first thing I wanted to do was get those stickers on my rigs. Here is how it went (pretty easy):

Got my stickers:

Dirty, dirty window!

Spray some windex on window or surface!

Rub window with rag!

Wipe clean with a clean dry rag!

Mark a center on the sticker!

Peal sticker off of backing!

Center the sticker on window, with mark!

Once centered, start working from the middle outward to the right and back again to the left. All ways start from the middle!

Once this is done, rub the sticker all over to clear any air bubbles!

Smooth all the sticker area!

Start peeling back, the backing of the sticker!

A little more!

Done!

Do a final rub down to work all the air bubbles out!

I also threw a couple on the boat!

Now, if you get an air bubble you can not finger out, take a little needle pin and poke a hole in the middle of the air bubble and work the bubble to the pin hole.

This only took minutes and I have the FM/HSO Badge now!

Who knows????? This could get you out of traffic ticket or a search by the D.N.R., grin NO!!!! Just fooling around!

They look cool and I am sure to meet new friends at the launch's and gas stations. A good way to meet a fellow F.M.'er.

Nice job Josh and they look good. I agree with Airjer, get a sign squeegee and life will be much easier placing those decals on and getting them smooth without air bubbles. You did do a very nice job without the tool.

Those look sharp. Been thinking of doing the same to my rig. I have some I got from Upnorth I think and they are pretty sweet too. Not HSO, but nice fish ones.

I figure since a squeegee is not furnished with the stickers, I would show the mass's the "Shade Tree" squeegee wink :

Plus I just had to get it on grin and actually if you start from the middle on the HSO sticker and work your way out you will have no bubbles at all. I did have a window tint squeegee at the ready, but these stickers went on so easy, it was not needed.

    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.
