Too Big ? Restoring Western

    I bought a used 9' unimount for a good deal. I thought it wouldn't be such a big project.... kinda wrong about that. It turned into a big project. I forgot to get a good picture of before. I have some pictures of the progress. I disassambled it, sandblasted it, and had pieces welded in including the entire whole top and added a back blade. That turned into rebuilding the motor and replacing the pump. I added a set of Buyers wings too. My primary plowing is a nice open parking lot with a couple driveways.

    alldayrj - the white stuff in the corners is automotive seam sealer. It works great in the corners before you paint to keep any future rust from bleeding thru.

    scholzee - I wanted to add a little color on it some where to make it stand out a little

    Do you have to get 100% of the rust out before you seal it up?

    I payed $500 for whole unimount. I try not to think too much about how much I have into. After sandblasting, welding patches & installing back blade, replacing pump & motor, trip springs & hardware, it maybe close to $1000. It may seem like a lot, but I think it's worth approx. $1500.
