    Does anyone know if one could cut out a rusty metal skin on a steel v plow and replace it with a replacement poly skin that is used on a ploy v plow. Plow size is 8' 2''.

    A lot of the strength of that plow is with the skin. Take a look at the poly vees and their additional bracing.

    It would require a fair amount of modification to the moldboard frame since the steel skin acts as a structural component.

    Bummer, that's what I figured, but I was hoping someone did it. What is an alternative to fixing a rusty blade-welding patches?

    patches, re-skinning or replace the moldboard.
