    any paint/ body / detail pros on site?

    Good advice.i should probably decon 1st like a metal panel.strip wash with non ph soap,degreaser,clay bar then ipa? Start on the scuffs with a mild compound then work up to something more agressive if needed? Not using a DA on this. I may attempt the repair on the deep scratch.do a oem paint touch up and clearcote myself.paint match doesnt need to be perfect.

    any paint/ body / detail pros on site?

    Yea,theres some swirls on the body panels.nothing terrible,just enough to keep me from applying a sio2.sticking to wax wich can be removed fairly easy when i,m ready to work a panel.i have a Griots complete compound,Meguiars Ultimate compound,Meguiars Ultimate polish and Megs scratch x 2.0 .i think the worst scratch might need filler and OEM touch up paint.wet sanding is above my pay grade.the areas are to curved for even a 3" DA pad.it will all have to be done by hand.fyi turtle wax ice spray wax is good stuff.beats aplying a paste wax.have you ever repaired clear cote plastic trim?
  5. Question: my 2015 Ram ( black,ugghh i know you guys hate black paint) the front spoiler/air deflector most likely plastic.gloss black probably clearcoted has picked up some scuffs and one scratch that fails the fingernail test.i know how to remove scratches on painted panels,have a good DA polisher,multiple compounding and polishing pads,compounds,polishes etc.tooo many microfiber towels( work clean).seeing as how its plastic i,m guessing regular clearcoat scratch repair wont work.suggestions?if none of you guys are in this perhaps you can send me a email of a pro you recomend.thanks much
  6. Youre welcome,good luck.one more thing sometimes a slip float will lay over on its side instead of going under.that coud be a crappie bite or your set to deep and the weight/ hook are on the bottom.just adjust the knot in increments till the float sits upright.....youtube,just type in your interest.wealth of info on video there.
  7. Slide line through the little black knot tube,slide knot off towards the rof tip.slide black tube off,discard.titen the knot eough so it ts moveable but stays in place.plastic bead next is optional.float,1 weight about 12"" above hook,tie on hook.the loose knot ends may hang up in your guides while casting,if it is a constant issue,titen it down as much as possible and trim the loose ends.i prefer to leave yhem long so i can retiten the knot.you can even reel it onto the spool for fishing deeper than your rod length.
  8. Oh boy,where to start? Learn(practice) the clinch knot and the palomar knot.wet the knot before you cinch it down.glad to hear your rigs gave you no problems.close the bail by hand,not turning the handle that will help cut down on line twist.read up on slip floats these will allow you to fish much deeper than a clip on bobber.cant go wrong with minnows...look at my post from yesterday.i,ll attach some pics of our slip floats and rigs tomorrow.sorry i missed your initial post.

    Fishing the Trout lakes 2019

    Not a fan of quikfish or flatfish either except 2 exceptions.#1) holding in place in current #2) or removing the hooks,attach a leader and your spoon of choice.the imparted action is amazing....learned that trick from a old laker guide on Champlain....same idea,remove hook from a moose look wobbler,attach leader,hook and nite crawler.trout cant resist.( he sometimes painted the old beater flatfish chrome,auto part store,lowes/ depot now a days.)one of those walleye slow death hooks would be worth a shot behind the moose look.scaled down dodger.

    whole house surge protection

    Agreed,smoke detectors are necessary as well.ff,i installed it myself.this type is not raintite.i installed it inside a weather proof box purchased seperately.i wired it onto a 2 pole 30 amp breaker inside a 16 circuit generator transfer switch.they come with a flush mount kit if needed but its a pain.
  11. As a retired electrician i felt it neccesary( especially with recent lightning storms)to raise this topic.I,ll preach once and be done with it.please read this all the way through,ill keep it short and laymans terms as best as i can# 1the majority of plug in "surge strips " are garbage.they fail after even a minor surge,you have no clue,no indicators even the the better ones all degrade over time.i have personally seen mattresses catch on fire from cheap surge strips under the beds.chinese crap.please please buy good quality brands for your tvs etc.( Monster brand, excellent) there are multiple types,most are MOV it is a element that burns/ blows, upon a surge,smaller surges cause the element to degrade over time. Replace them every 2 yrs or so.there are electronic surge protectors available that do not degrade but they are more costly.whole house sp,s are great for your electronic appliances,refrig,microwave,ranges etc.where it is impractical to protect at the outlet.there are devices that look like a breaker,need breaker spaces(2). They fry and die,one and done...more lightning or tva surges you are unprotected,even across the neutral( white wire in most homes) .i recomend this product by Intermatic.it has the ability for a homeowner to replace a module that fried during a event without calling a electrician.just purchase spare modules.the led lites indicate power and condition of the module .If i came across a bit passionate,i am.i have seen to many fires caused by cheap surge supressors,...and lives lost.i have been called in by insurance agencies,fire marshalls etc post incedent inspections.sad and totally preventable.please forgive my rant but the lightning and questionable power supplies cause this.be safe and God bless. Any questions? Please do not hesitate a moment to contact me or a qualified / licensed electrician...it is you and your families lives.thankyou
