    I'm looking for someplace in the Mass area that sands and paints plows?

    Just search for a powdercoating company. Most will have the ability to blast your plow to get the old, rusty, flacky crap off. Your probably looking at around $300-$400 for a good paint job.

    Or buy a grinder and a wire wheel, take about an hour and clean it yourself and grab a can of rustoleum and a brush and roller and do it yourself

    How detailed are you looking to have it done? Complete breakdown and cleanup+paint of everything? Or just blade front? What brand of plow is it?

    Hey Mikey.... just a guess, but he posted in the Fisher area! ;) That would be my thought, but you know what assuming does!!!


    PS: How's the sandblasting/painting/reassembly going??

    I got a quote from BC Industries in Oxford, MA for $450, blast, prime and top coat.
    I also called Travis at Abrasive Blasting and Coatings in Worcester...I think he said 300 ish...I've had Travis blast my frame on my Bronco...uses Black Beauty, good stuff, did a really good job too...

    Black Beauty is some serious blast abrasive! It does NOT remove Fisher powdercoating effectively!! I went through 600 pounds of the stuff before I gave up.:eek:

    LOL, real good point!!! didn't even think of that!

    My rebuild is going great, the sand blaster didn't really work so we are using some other methods that are working well. All the headgear pieces are primed as well as the lower trip blade assembly. Blade is almost ready for primer as well. Should be done by next weekend :)
