    This was my first time doing anything like this. It went very well and wasn't very expensive. I still have to flush out the pump, replace two hoses, and put new fluid in it but I think it turned out well. Here are the before pics.

    Here is after I cut the bolts off to get the cutting edge off, and the mount without the blade.

    finished product

    Here is the finished product. Looks brand new to me. Got it for free and to me it looks like a million bucks. I like having good looking stuff and this will definately help.

    Just got done tearing down another plow today now that I can move this one out of the garage. This will be my second one so hopefully it turns out just as well or better. Need it done fast, snow is coming soon!
