    Told a few guys on here I'd get some pictures of my plow posted on here, finally getting around to it. Finished about two weeks ago. Completely sandblasted, replaced rusted out section on bottom. New pump motor and power cables.

    looks very nice. how much did the sandblasting run you if you dont mind me asking? I need to do something with my meyers plow before winter really comes and i keep debating on getting it done or not. My other option would be to sand down all the rustys spots(mostly in cracks and corners)and primer them, probablly a little POR 15 and then respray in yellow. Thats not Meyer yellow btw is it?

    I did my own sandblasting. Probably spent more on the sand than if i hired it done. If your gonna just touch it up get a wire brush for you angle grinder or something. unless you have a little sandblaster. if the rest of the paint is still good you dont really need to take it off. just scratch it down with some light sandpaper or a scotchbrite pad. never tried that por15 stuff. Otherwise just use a good quality paint. Friend of mine who owns a body shop got me the paint and shot it for me after i did all the prep on it. He brought down a fleet color card set and we picked out a color. i just matched it to the yellow on my pump. Single stage urethane paint. He tells me i should easily get five years out of it.

    Thanks! And Just to clarify i only got the electric motor for the pump. I got it at a meyer parts dealer a town over. Cost just under a hundred. Ebay has cheaper ones but i had no experience with them and didnt want to chance having it go bad in the middle of a snowstorm.

    sounds good.thanks for the advice I noticed lowes has a safety yellow rustoleum ( one of their higher grades of outdoor paint) for like $10.00 a gallon. i was going to give that a shot and spray it using my air compressor.

    I orderd a COMPLETE Meyer decal kit with EVERY original decal off ebay for like $22.00, made my newly completed Meyer plow look like factory new.
