    Hello. Is the off season, time to clean up the plow. I sand blasted the rust off, sanded rough areas and primed. Most of the heavy rust was at the seams between the blade and braces. I'm thinking of sealing those seams with a seam sealer prior to painting. Might stop the rust from happening again. Any suggestions on what to use? Has anyone tried this? Thanks

    i just sanded them down and welded most of them. then ground them smooth. actually came out pretty nice. but idk about an actual seam sealer.

    it might be the revese effect, and if any water gets under, it might trap it....like plowman said, if ur concered , then weld them shut, leave the bottom 3 inches open to drain
