    A place that sprays in bed-liners would probably do it. Linex place by me will do it for a couple hundred or is included if it was to be sprayed with liner.

    Can any one help me on repainting my plow?

    [I have a Sno-way 28v series plow about 6 yrs old and it is starting to look kinda bad and rusted. It works great and would like to repaint it , but all I see is touch up paint for it on the sno-way site. Has anyone repainted their plow lately and is there a "special paint that I need the body shop or whoever paints it to get for it. I could use any help for sure. Thank you in advance.

    I used spray cans of Boss red and did it in garage. I wish I had bought a pint and sprayed it with a spray gun.

    I am re-doing the front after only two seasons. The back still looks new.

    Harold....I have the same plow and use a "hammered" paint in spray cans and then clear coat with a spray can over it.
    Looks great and will last all year.

    Plow painting??

    So Hydro 37 >>>>what kinda of paint did you use on it? I'm not sure what hammered paint is and what color is that ? Did you sand blast it first? What kinda of clear coat did you use over it and where did you get it also. I'm lost on this stuff.

    I got spray cans of Rustoleum (hammered) it is a black with Grey flake in it and almost matches the factory color. I just sanded it a bit so the paint sticks good. Got a clear coat that works over enamel paint. Got it all from Mills Fleet Farm. Any tractor supply store or even Wally World has it.

    If yours is rusted badly I would pressure wash it and sand really good and use an enamel primer first.
    Since I paint mine every year I just need a light sanding before paint.

    I used Zinsser from Menards worked great. It is a paint stripper that worked great on my Western definetely cheaper than having it blasted and then used 2 quarts of rust oleum sunrise red.
