      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 .

Has anyone ever paint their garage doors to match the trim?

Recommended Posts

We had a hail storm last year and everything is replaced but the garage doors. The doors that came with the house were sprayed to match the trim. The problem is that I'll have to paint them and are looking for suggestions. Can I do this with a roller or should I have a painter spray them? Also what kind of paint? Thanks for any tips?

We had our trim and doors painted a year or two ago and it turned out nice. I think the guy just used a roller for the garage door and brushed the trim. It looks really good and haven't had any problems with paint pealing or anything.

I believe he used Sherwyn Williams paint.

Good Luck!

They can be repainted,what I would do is give them a light sand,clean them with soilex or dirtex with a sponge use a brush to cut in around the panels and roll the face and the rails also roll into what was cut in to keep the same texture, when that is done raise the door to get the side rails that were behind the weather strip.I would also recomend using a 1/2 nap roller and A quality satin paint.

My house had a badly spray painted purple garage door on it. We painted it white to match the trim.

It was quite easy and never had problems with it rubbing off or peeling.

It actually fell off the tracks resulting in a new door, but thats a whole nother issue smile

Ottertailguy,

The ins. company should replace these to be the same color

as the old ones.

The process used by the garage door manufacture is sprayed on

electronicly, wich should give you many years of use with no

problems, painting them is NOT a good idea. my email is in

my profile, email me if you have any questions

The ins. company is required to replace these as a like, kind and quality product
