    Very nice. Look good and keeps everything scooped well. How long did it take you?

    I did something like that back in 2005, they worked good and the plow that they are on is rotting around them. You did a really nice job and I never had any problems with them so you should be in great shape. Some of the best plows ive owned where plows that got the welder and plasma cutter treatment.

    A lot longer than I thought it would, Lol. Between the cutting, bending and fitting I had about 6 hours in it. The hardest part was getting the curve right on those thick pieces. The wings are a 1/4" thick and we didn't have a roller heavy enough to make a perfect radius on them, so I had to make a set of lines on them every inch or so and bend them in a press.

    It worked and we got them on. Next time I will use maybe 1/8" or 3/16" plate. It will be more than heavy enough.;)

    Thanks for the compliments. I paint every plow, mounts and spreaders I own every year. It helps that we have a metal/machine shop too. I keep up on all the cracks, rust holes and any other issue I find.:D

    Looks good! I might have to get creative with my straight blade.

    Also I'd flip the pin over that holds them in, that away if the clip falls out the pin isn't 100% guaranteed to fall out instantly.

    They don't fit in from the top down, or I would! :D

    I wouldn't see why not? You would just have to strengthen the edges.

    O yes I know guys did that. They even cut a 8ft plow in half and put 4ft on each side of the truck plows to make there 8ft plow into 16ft plows
    It was a sight to see them in a 20 acre parking lot with 16ft plow on a truck.
    This was back in late 90s Ran western plows but they used meyer pumps.
    They said Meyers pumps would lift the plow better.
