    heres the deal, i just bought a 2 year old boss poly vee plow off of my local dealer that was a trade in.. the metal framing off the poly plow has some rust on it because the previous owner neglected to wash the road salt off it before placing it in storage.. my question is what black paint should i get to repaint the black, and should i just paint it or should i prep it at all? thanks for the help in advanced.

    If it were me and you want the plow to look good, I would just use it as is this year, and make it your summer project. Prep. it up all nice and then use a glossy lack finish and paint it all up real nice.

    Do you have any pics of this rust?
    How extensive is it?

    At this point in the season if the rust is really bothering you
    just touch it up with some rust=olium or spray it with fluid film.
    Then this summer you can repaint it properly.

    I would run it for now, the snow will nock some of the rust off and a good preshure washing will too. Then apply some FF
    (Insert FF song here xysportxysportxysportxysport)
    Then clean it up and paint it in the spring.


    Have you had the chance to use it yet?
