    We just finished reskinning one of our Meyer blades. We got it all painted, new hoses, new cutting edge and decals. We have one more to redo yet. Just hoping the snow comes soon!

    Where did you pick up the decals? My decal on my DrivePro came off after like 3 pushes... I would like to get a new one for my plow.

    Nice restoration!

    We know a guy that ordered us the steel. We bought a 4x8 sheet then he knew a place the would cut and bend it. They cut the steel and made 2 skins and bent them for $50 and I think the steel was $80. Then we welded it on ourselves.

    We finished up another one of our blades. This one we just repainted. We're waiting on the decals to come.

    Here is the new Diamond pump we just picked up. It was new but it was sitting on the shelf and all scratched up so we repainted it and we only had Meyer E-60 decals so we put the on.

    Looks great. I reskined one of my meyers and I put the blade and steel on top of a 55 gallon drum and pushed it down with a back hoe bucket and then welded it together.

    yea no kidding, you should think about reskinning plows in your off time for some extra cash.

    Thanks. Yea we are going to try to do that next season. We did 2 of ours and it only takes about a day to cut it off and weld it on, but we also have have someone else cut the steel and roll it.
