    I have basically bathed my plow in fluid film! Now, i want to grind it down and basically repaint it all. Will i have any problems using fisher paint having it stick because of the FF i used so much on it?

    I can't say for certain, but Simple Green should clean any residual FF off. Besides, you'll be taking off the paint anyway. Look into sandblasting it -- you can get one (I think) at Taylor

    Use brake clean or a good degreaser and a hot water pressure washer if you can find one. Then get a wire wheel for your grinder, they work great for getting all the rust blisters off and roughing up the good paint. Then take varsol or laquer thinner and wipe the blade down a few times and then it's ready for paint. We have got a few blades blasted as said above and that is the best but if you have the time you can save money by doing it yourself. Personally I love painting but the clean up sucks. JMO

    Well, i didn't have any problems!!! the rust treatment i did to all the metal parts probably took care of even the tinyest bit of residue from the fluid film.......you better believe that the finished plow will be coated in fluid film!!
