    Hey Guys,

    My push plates are brand new but after a few snow events, have become scratched and rusted where the frame sits on the bottome part of the plate. What do you guys do to clean this up during the spring/summer? Hate to have a new truck all nice and shiny and rusted plow mount in the front. Scrub off the rust and hit it with some black spray paint??

    I do absolutely nothing. I'd just sand it down and paint with an industrial black paint.

    I hit them with a wire wheel to get the rust off then paint them black
