    Ill be painting my plow...

    What is a quality, yet inexpensive paint to use? How much paint just to do the front side of the plow?

    A gallon of auto paint was $50! Plus $15 for the primer sealer....

    I dont want to spend $70 for paint!!!!!

    we painted a 3 point scraper blade for a tractor with Safety Yellow from Tractor Supply Company, the paint is holding up really nice. My buddy and I painted it last fall and it has lasted all of last snow season and through re-grading a gravel road this summer. Just make sure you sand blast or wire brush the old paint off first.

    to answer the "how much question" a quart easily did the entire 8 foot scraper blade; Front, back , and support structure.

    Yeah man. Make sure you paint that blade yellow.

    And when you buy another plow buy a poly blade and some armor all.

    lol
