      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 .

spray bedliner on trailer wheels?

Question

I'm almost done sprucing up my new trailer. the last thing on the list are the wheels. they are the white painted type. they are peeling and pretty rusty. Instead of painting them, I was thinking I'd have some bedliner sprayed on them......does anyone see a problem doing this? If they end up out of balance too far, I'll just balance them. this way, the wheels will stay nice and sharp with no maintainance. it's an aluma trailer, that gets used occasionally, with most use being in the winter for ice fishing..... I have a friend who does the bedliners and he will do it relatively cheaply for me.... thoughts???

I would think they might be hard to balance. Be careful not to get a build up under the lugs or where they go against the hubs. The cheap paint they put on from the factory usually has no primer under it. I would sandblast them and spray on a good primer and several good coats of enamel or have them powder coated.

I sprayed just about every thing, and I owned all my own stuff too. I sprayed arma coatings. But you will nock them way out of alinement. I would just paint them. I did it to my rim's and one year latter I had to by knew rims.

If anything, sand blast and Powder coat paint them, the balancing issue will pop up and likely ruin the tires due to hopping on the bed liner option.

Painting or just replacing them with new rims and tires may be the most cost effective plan in the long run. If the tires are near wear replacement levels, replacement with a rim/tire combo new would be my preference.

Thanks guys, I gotta tell ya, I'm bummed. I was pretty stoked about my idea!! the tires have tons of life left in them, the tread is almost like new so I don't want to ruin them. thanks for all the advise.

i shot my rusty wheelhouse rims with some rustoleum rust primer and white gloss paint to get by for now. I'll buy new rims and tires when the time comes. $10 in spray paint, apply once a year or so and they look new.
