Subject: FTE 97up - Springfield Get-Together

Ken Payne's recent post concerning the Atlanta show got me to
thinking: I will be going to a show/swap meet called "Springfield in the
Fall" in Springfield, Ohio, the same weekend, September 11-13. While I
have not made it to the Fall meet before, if it is like the Spring meet,
it is a general show, with an accent on swap meet, rather than a
strictly truck show. It would be a great meeting place for some of us in
the northern reaches who can't make Atlanta this year.
If any of you are interested, let me know, and we'll get together
Saturday the 12th. If we can't all get together at the same time, look
for a "well fed" guy with light brown hair, a reddish beard and a
"Grover" t-shirt in the vicinity of a Tempo and a Kelty tent, or
somewhere in the swap area looking longingly at something he can't
afford!

Subject: FTE 97up - Bedliner Quality

Does anyone have any comments on the quality of spray in bedliners? I am
considering spraying the bed in my truck, but having a hard time deciding
on which one to go with. I have visited places like Rhino, Line-X, Toff,
Speedliner and have gathered brochures and samples. They all have their
sales pitch that they give ya. Just wondering what experiences you all have
had.

Thanks in advance

Ron

I got a factory installed bedliner on my '98 F-150. It works great! Not 1
problem!
