    aint got no pics with this one but here's a lil story from today. one of the steel diamond plate loading dock plates is messed up at work. when you pull the chain to lift the plate up the hinged part of the plate is supposed to spring up so when you step on the plate it lowers it onto the trailer. well, the hinged part of the plate isn't springing open and, it's taking 2 of us using a ton of force to pull it open. (it's been this way for months and it keeps gettng worse) when you're done unloading/loading the trailer you pull a different chain that raises the plate again so you can close the hinged part then lower the plate back into the resting position. the receiver and i were kicking the crap out of the hinged plate today and we could not get it to close for nothing. louie had sprayed it with WD40 last week with no results at all. after the truck pulled out today i sprayed it with fluid film and we can now move it back and forth with just a little amount of effort required. it wont be fixed until someone comes out and changes the piston that's sposed to work it but, thanks to fluid film no one is going to hurt themselves between now and then.

    thank you fluid film!

    sorry there's no pics dan but i didn't want to risk getting anyone in trouble

    Hey, thanks for the plug! I always love hearing Fluid Film stories. It gives me more to talk about around the campfire. (The kids hate it. They want scary stories. Go figure). ;)
