    My friend just had his metal skinned replaced on his plow, its just raw metal right now. I was going to use rust oleum pain, and roll it on vs. spraying to aviod the mess....but will that paint work? Is there any special paint to use? As far as the effects of snow rolling, chipping, weather conditions....

    Thanks in advance..
