    8" MMI plow, getting rusty, but no serious damage yet. My tools are limited as is my budget so taking it to a shop for sandblasting and painting is out. Would a powerwasher be of any use to blast off the loose edges of the powdercoting so I can get it clean enough to prime and paint?

    I was thinking of putting a coat of rhino liner on it...good idea or bad?

    get a 4 1/2 angle grinder and a wirewheel for it. takes the loose stuff off and scuffs the paint as well. worked good for me.

    You can also get wire wheels for power drills so if you don't have grinder this work well also. I have had good luck using this method on other projects. The rhino lining I am not sure about but I have heard that POR15 and other rust inhibitors such as this work well as a primer for paint, it also stops any rust that you couldn't get with the wire wheel from getting worse.

    Get a stiff paint scraper/spackel knife and scrape the loose flakey edges off first...Then wire wheel as said before..
