    So I got my ultramount ripped apart and had it sandblasted and powder coated . First question I have is the electric motor is rusty and want to paint it do I sandblast it? Also where's a good online site to get some replacement parts from my local dealer isn't worth a ****. I know more about the parts I need then they do. I went on rcpw.com and try end using the code "plowsite" to get 5% off like the ad says and it doesn't work!

    CPW is the worst. I live and plow around them and won't buy crap from them.

    Check with regional truck 1st. CPW buys their plows from them. CPW is a sub dealer.

    "First question I have is the electric motor is rusty and want to paint it do I sandblast it?"
    Can't help you with parts prices as I live too far away but I can tell you about your motor. Yes you can sand blast if but try to avoid getting sand in the holes and especially avoid the output shaft end bushing. After you blast it blow it out real good with compressed air to get as much sand out as possible. Of course you understand that the sand can interfere with the commutator, brushes and bushings so keep as much san out as possible. If there are large holes stuff some tissue in there or something to keep the sand out. Same goes for paint, plug or avoid the holes, keep the paint on the outside.

    Don't even bother trying to sandblast it. So not worth "trying" not to get sand inside. Sure blow ir out real good. What about the sand that sticks to the grease on the bearing up top? Can't get that out
    Primer and paint that's about it
