    Rustoleum primer and paint. The key to any paint is the prep work, and the prep work it the part that sucks. Ill throw some pics of my rebuild project(s) up when they're done, hopefully this friday.

    depends on your experience level, i sandblast my plows to bare metal, than use automotive primer and enamel paint.
    sand blasting at a shop usually can be done for around $400.00
    paint supplies ( primer lacquer thinner, enamel paint, reducer and hardener) araound $200.00
