    Since I am in market for a used truck. I will end up with a MM1 or a older MM2. Any thoughts on prices or where to bring them to have them done correctly

    A good sander and some time will get it down to metal to paint.

    There's a guy in Auburn Maine that does sandblasting and powdercoating. A guy on here had one done this year I think. It wasn't cheap, but the plow looked brand new. Sandblasting will do a much better job a grinder. It will get into all the nooks and crannies. And powdercoating will last much longer and look better than paint. I'm sure you could find someone closer to do the work. If I were looking for a truck, I would look for one that had not plowed. Then find a plow a couple years old.

    Good luck, Palmer

    I had my Western sandblasted, primed and seam sealed for $200.00. I didn't like the powder coat it had from the factory, most of it peeled off.

    We use a wire wheel and grinder on our blades and we pretty much dismantle them. We can do a better job then most paint shops plus we get a good look at the plow and we rebuild them at the same time.
