    Preperation is the key to paint. Prep it well then use a good oil based paint or buy some Snoway paint from your dealer. You're just painting the frame, correct?

    I clean and sand mine well, use a good primer and Menards has a rustoleum paint that has the same color and speckle as the factory color.

    Go to a paint store ot auto supply store and tell them what your doing and what they reccomend. Painting isn't rocket science, prime it, two top coats of the best paint you can afford. Basher is right, prep is everything. You can use a small roller on all the large parts and then touch up with a spray bomb or brush. :drinkup:

    Gray part # 97100908

    How old is your plow? Is it black and silver, or is it the 2 toned speckled silver vein? If is is the silver vein we do not offer a pre-mixed touch up for it.

    That's what I use. It is just a shade different then factory paint but it is reasonable priced and a close match.
