My credo
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
I watched some drill the door on a brand new car and spray that stuff inside... I should have been nice and told him to roll the window up first. I wasn't nice. ;missingteeth;
Oh, yuck.

I didn't ask for your life story, just answer the question!

When I ask "would like a piece of advice?" And you respond "No, I know what I'm doing."... You don't get the advice.

Fluid film and similar coatings also have the benefit of not trapping moisture and causing unseen rot that isn't discovered until it's too late.

Fluid film is basically lanolin, and is sourced from sheep. I helped shear some sheep this spring (well, basically watched), and the guy that did it had very soft skin on his hands. He also had some very large muscles as most sheep don't want to be sheared.

Do not mess with a sheep shearer, they are usually pretty stout.

Alright I know it's a lot of pictures but after about an hour of some turpentine rubbing I got the adhesive that failed so I used the 3m car stuff but bed is lit up like a Christmas tree...

The aluminum rim to replace the steel spare rim showed up yesterday. So, when I get time to drive over to the tire shop, I’ll get the spare tire and TPMS sensor installed so I have a complete set of all terrain rims and winter rims for spring and fall rotations.

My credo
Doing things wrong, until I get it right.
To be quite frank that's one of the biggest annoyances of my truck that don't have time to find a exploder seat back or a ranger seat back and the one on my truck is broken and been broken for a while plus the cushion on the seat bottom closest to the seat back is worn pretty bad......though I found a crazy good 95 ranger single cab with only 66k but it's the 2.3 mated to a automatic....price dropped.... and those 2.3 can be built for power just like they do in dirt track cars.....my rambling about this 95 is that it has a bench seat like a old 70's truck with no indents for your ass like some of the other base model rangers....but yeah......my seats drive me nuts.....hell the rear jump seats are more comfortable than my driver or passenger seats in my truck......thanks for the reply though....
If you ever get up to Tallajassee, I'l give you a set of Explorer buckets. (gray)

I don't know how well the 3m tape will hold to the rubber bed liner in your truck. You will probably find these rolling around your bed in the near future.

Rivers, ponds, lakes, swamps, open water, deep sea, yeah, the fishing is good, and ive had the seats for this long, so i may still have them when you decide to see your pops.
