    Does curtis sell touch up paint? Or is it not even worth it considering the paint reputation? Should I just let it rust until I feel the need to blast and repaint the entire blade?

    Good one Tom - Now that you said that, you could not find a better match than that. Your a 10 on my scale for that one. That will help everyone that likes the curtis plows to look new. Jimmy

    The orange on our plow is in fact Kubota Orange (don't tell Kubota ;) ). We do offer touch up paint in either a spray can or quart (from Sherwin Williams). It is a little pricey and is really only standard paint as the original paint on the plows is powder coated.

    Now i have two 10,s on my scale. Your a good sales rep for curtis and glad you are here. Curtis makes a ( very good ) plow and the next truck WILL be a curtis - Jimmy

    think there is any point in touching up? My paint is chipping and peeling on a lot of the edge surfaces. Or should I just let it go until its time to repaint the entire plow?

    I feel it is worth touching up. The more you can keep any moisture or what not away from exposed edges of metal or paint the longer the overall finish is going to last.

    Also things that are kept looking good usually are usually kept working good!
