    too much$$...doesn't last. Just used Rustoleum John Deere Yellow Farm Grade paint with a Good Rustoleum Primer. either clean metal primer or rusty metal primer. works amazing!!! and cheap $

    ADoes the rustoleum have good durability? Its a third the price which is great if it lasts.

    Thanks, good to know. I will pick up some rustoleum and use that. Hardware store had it for $10 a quart. Fisher pain was going to be $40.

    there is a secret with rustoleum to make it color match perfect. I did two plows and you can't tell the difference between the fisher color and mine. PM me and we can talk...

    What makes the Fisher paint poor quality ? I use it as touch up to their powdercoating process, It works fine .

    This is what my plow looks like after using fisher paint with a roller I scuffed it up primed and painted.If you don't mind what it looks like use rustoleum sunburst yellow its cheaper and goes on much thicker.What a quart of rustoleum will do it takes two quarts to do it in the fisher paint.Of course I put the fisher decal on the front of the blade after the pictures were taken.

    Pm me a price. And I heard it takes atleast twice as long to blast a powder coated one? Got a price of 400 for blasting alone last year.
