    I did one of these also, of course my budget was larger. Mine was a $50 plow from a swap meet. It looked like it meet up with a telephone pole, but a few hours with a big torch & a sledge hammer fixed it up. I had a frame from a 79. Of course different frame width, had to re-make the whole thing. I tied into my hydraulic pump for my dump bed & used some cable controls I got for free. This setup has served me very well for about 4 years now I'm upgrading a bit.

    Lol my budget is not 20 bucks, I just called it the 20 dollar plow project because I got the plow, the nonfunctional pump/ mount ect for 20 bucks. I just put the pump back together and one of these days I'm gonna get some synthetic ATF and hopefull watch it work:p The main part of the mount it almost done(the part that mounts underneath. Then I jsut hafta get some 2 inch square tubing and make the "upper" mount. But it will all be one peice. Maybe at another time I'll make it two, but for now I like the idea of one piece.

    Sandblasting depends on how much it is. I might just grind it down, wire brush, ect, and then por 15 it.
