    My plow could use painting ,but I was thinking about putting a poly plow shield on the plow instead of painting . I thought the snow might roll off better. What do you guys think?

    Glue a shield on ? or Paint and wax plow ???

    If the steel is still in great shape, paint it. If the steel has a lot of dings, gouges, bends, holes etc., paint- then glue the poly on.

    The 8' Boss on our '91 Dodge has the poly on it, as well as the 6.5' Meyer on our CJ7 driveway Jeep. The company that installed them for us welded a piece of "c" channel along the lenght of the moldboard just above the cutting edge. They set the poly into the channel and then force it to the curve of the plow. 1/4" bolts are installed about every 8" along the top to hold it in place.

    They really work great - no sticky snow and low maintenance.
