    I am the Facility Director of a large church in Kansas City area. We have 9 acres to plow and plow our own lots with volunteer church members driving old trucks with old well used plows. We have 4 trucks, a Hiniker spreader and a Bobcat.

    I would like to sandblast our 6'6" Meyer, patch some rusted through spots, paint with
    POR15, and then install a poly skin to the blade.

    Any tips would be appreciated i;e, using POR15, applying the poly skin, etc.

    Thanks guys for the help.

    Why not just paint with POR-15 topcoat (they have yellow/red). I'm doing that with a rusted fisher 7.5' blade in the next couple of days. Going to remove the rest of the paint with paint remover, do a rough patch of some rust holes at the top, and paint with the POR-15 undercoat and topcoat. If you're sand blasting to get rid of the paint that's fine, but POR-15 can be applied straight to rusty metal.
