    Where at in NE Ohio? If you want steel of any kind just measure it and go to AirGas Great lakes, (used to be lake erie iron and metal) in painesville. If you want some kind of plastic, go to House of Plastics in cleveland. Sometimes you can get their "drop" stuff for pennies on the dollar.

    Hope that helps. Oh, my @ cents is go with steel or poly, I have seen way to many lexan moldboards break.

    Go to sno-ways website and check the guage of the moldboard they put on your model plow. Then just buy that guage from a supplier. You will probably have to heat it to bend it into shape on the plow, and you will probably need a couple of buddies to help.

    I replaced the plastic sheet on my Sno-ways 2 years ago.I used sheet medal I got from AirGas Great lakes,you will have to pre-form it a little to the shape of the plow frame,weld it in place,a good coat of paint and your ready to go.My plow is over 14 years old and have very little problem with it.The only thing I had a problem with was the dealer I got from,a real a..hole,he could care less about taking care of after the sale.I had to go over the installation and make correction,

    I replaced my rusted out steel on my Sno Way lobo V plow with stainless. It cost me about 200 dollars, and I installed it my self in about 3 hours or so. I just went to a local steel supplier, and bought the stainless and they rolled it to match the curve on my plow. Simple and easy.
