    My friend just did his this winter with it. He's happy with considering what his moldboard looks like. He ended putting bolt at the end to hold it better the caulk didn't work great.

    I put one of those skins on old Western on my skidloader this fall. It worked preatty well, snow rolls off alot beter, considering it only goes 12 mph. A couple thing to keep in mind though, You have to drill like 12 - 1/4 " holes in the top of your blade, the caulk didn't seal well for me, & I can only imagine how fast the blade will rot with moisture sanwidged between.

    I bought one this season to do a quick hole repair, but went to welding instead. Going to install in this summer. Heard nothing but good stuff and the caulking is inadequate. I plan to drill and pop rivet the edges too. I am also thinking about roll on bed linering the moldboard behind the poly shield for rust protection.
