    So what's the best to put on your blade to keep it nice and slippery. That Fluid Film work? Or regular car wax? Or do people not put anything on there?

    If you are eager wax it and then FF it. You only have a problem with snow sticking on certain snow falls, so it's not a big deal.

    FF alone works great. but im sure if you wax it and then FF it your plow will be like Chevy Chase's sled in Christmas Vacation

    When I repaint my blades I use a clear coat for the last coat. Seems to help mine.

    Good to know. I'll be stripping my blade down and repainting it soon.

    I sand down any marks bigger than an pencil tip..... touch up with a cotton swab... sand again... touch up and use a blow drier to harden the paint. lol
