a lady i dated a hundred years ago in Bracebridge On frequently sported a t-shirt "slippery when wet,,isn't everybody" So use caution,,plastic bed liners should be labelled with warnings..those things are slicker than snot on a steering wheel when wet


I prefer "slicker than snot on a door knob" or "slicker than goose sh*t on a hot tin roof".

And I have experience with goose sh*t and tin roofs.

I haven't been to FC in years, but it wasn't the worst town to work out of.
Oil dropped out, and everything has gone to the crapper lately. There isn't any work to be had. But I do love being in Edmonton.

It the end of November, and the bikes are still out.

The hospitality hasn't changed and the people are still good, but it's getting harder.

Back when we were doing a lot of handicap ramps, we would add this to paint for them. Did a great job! The sand needs to be pretty fine for this! Thickens the paint, too. I would roll it on with the texture in it.

That stuff works great.  We used that to paint the Father-in-Laws wheel chair ramps last year.  Everyone was falling down them when it was raining since they were made out of plow wood.  It worked out nice.

I agree with adding texture to the bed, I also have fallen on those dang bedliners (my dad old truck had one, my truck has a cap and will stay that way but if it didn't it would have a roll on bedliner in it), fell far more times on DRY hay wagons as the floors wear completely smooth, add hay dirt(dust) and have fun, fell through a few too.

Unfortunately, I'm not in a position to relocate, so I have to wait and see. I've applied for over 140 jobs in 10 months, I've had 7 interviews. I'm supposed to interview for a millwright position again this week, but they haven't said when.
