      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 .

Truck Keyed

Recommended Posts

Some ____ [cannot be named due to word filter] keyed my truck yesterday. My wife drove my truck to work, and parked in a pay lot. She's going to call the lot to try and see if anything can be seen from the security cameras (a friend of ours busted a guy for keying her car with the help of security cameras) and talk to our insurer.

I can't wait to get out of the cities. I don't get why someone would have to do that. This is my second vehicle I've owned in my life and both have been keyed within the first 6 months of ownership. In both cases the vehicle was 5 years old used. I'm not driving some Beamer that some jealous creep thinks is worth keying for no reason. The only thing a buddy and I could think of is some PETA nut didn't like my hunting and fishing stickers.

My question is, what can I do about touching it up? What insurance would cover it? The mark is from end to end and even went over the Z71 4X4 sticker on the rear end, so it would take more than a paint touch up.

I just hate senseless kraap like that. Sorry to hear about it.

Good luck on the camera thing, but I bet it's a long shot at best. frown

DC31,

Flipp'in Sticks, gosh darn it that sucks eggs frown.

Depending on how deep the scratch is, you can deaden the glare by polishing it or buffing it out.

Can you tell if it is threw the clear coat and into the paint? If so, is it threw the paint and into the primer? Or worse yet, down to the metal?

Makes you wonder what makes some people tick mad

But as far as the insurance goes I am guessing you will have to deal with your deductible.

Ugh....sorry to hear that Scott. I park my truck in a pay lot in downtown Mpls and every day I'm thankful it's still there first off and not damaged.

Like shack said, it all depends on how the scratches are.

I hear ya on the truck getting keyed....Worse yet was my old truck, someone went the extra step on that truck to take a regular screwdriver and do the passenger side of my truck, and actually creased the metal.....I put touchup paint on it, and then ended up someone hit that side about a year later, and got it taken care of at that time. Ended up with the whole side repainted.

That really made me wonder what I have nice things, when people are disrespectful and do things like that.

Its not just the cities. I had my Tahoe keyed at a public landing near Sartell, while I was out fishing. Not sure why...I wasn't parked close to anyone and I didn't do anything that might upset anyone while at the landing or in the boat that day. There were some teenagers just hanging out at the picnic table and my guess is that it was one of them.

Your comprehensive insurance coverage should take care of it. Sorry to hear about. I'd to like to get away from this rathole too. I live in a nice suburb and refuse to go into the "city" anymore. No reason for me to be there. Waiting for the real estate market to pick up and I'm headed for the woods.

$500 deductible. Wife parked in the far corner of the lot away from anybody else. The police haven't bothered getting back to us since we've filed the report. *sigh*

3 days after this happened someone scraped the front passenger bumper of our car and didn't leave a note so we will be doing touch up work on both the vehicles in this family unit.

    • Sorry but $200 seems pretty high for that thing to me. Thousands of less expensive alternatives.
    • Looks like a great project.  A DYI froth pak for $500 or so will do 12 sq ft at 1" thick.  Most home improvement stores carry these.  
    • I got a set of FXR FLoating bibs on clearance from the place in Rush City that goes along with my jacket I bought last year. It is really warm and lite.

    • Last weekend I switched out my ramp door for a bay window.  I'd like to spray foam it, but I'm sure I won't be able to find anyone willing to do it professionally in my area, at least not at a reasonable price.  Last winter I had to drive an hour and a half to get the rest of it spray foamed for about $2000.  One company told me they wouldn't fire up their equipment for less than 1800. For this small of an area I'm thinking I would be just fine with the foam boards @ 2-3/4" thick with the furring.  Otherwise, does anyone know how well those Menards Froth Packs work?  $360 still seems kind of spendy to spray foam that little area myself.  
    • That's awesome. I gave mine a test last night and they weren't bright enough. I might have to order some bright lights from Amazon. 
    • Looking good! I also wanted reverse lights. I used some of the really bright light bars from Amazon on mine.  
    • I would fur it out another inch, then spray foam and finish to the furring strips.  No vapor barrier needed at that point.
    • Use 1x2 (actually 3/4"x1 1/2") PVC trim boards for firring strips on the face of studs. The PVC won't absorb any moisture and works well as a thermo break from the aluminum studs. They can be found at any of the big box lumber stores.
    • Moisture is likely condensing on the metal studs and being transferred to the paneling. Furring strips will probably be the best bet with metal studs. You can run them horizontal or vertical and then just attach the paneling to that. I personally wouldn't use a vapor barrier. Some guys do though.
