    What's involved in replacing a polycarb Snow-way blade? Are these just a flat sheet of poly that can be purchased from a plastics vendor, or is it a custom curved piece that must be purchased from Sno-way? If it's a flat piece do you have any tricks for installation?

    Thanks for your thoughts,

    I had to replace my moldboard some time back.Stupid mistake,I oversprayed some Brakeleen while cleaning the metal A frame onto the lexan.Suddenly,the view was real clear with me behind the plow bending over.Yup--she dissolved that lexan real good.Anyway--go to a glass shop with your measurements for the new moldboard.About 15 years ago, it cost me about $100.Very simple to install and yes,it's flat,it will curve once you start bowing it and it's extremely resillient--EXCEPT to the tetra------type nasty solvents like Brakeleen.
