    So I'm just now hearing of this product plasti dip. Has anyone attempted using this stuff on there plows or spreaders? It sounds like a great idea but I'm a big skeptic on a lot of things. I'm gonna start sanding welding and painting my 8ft MM2 this weekend as it's seen better days and was considering spraying this stuff on my plow after it's painted as a secondary protectant. Any comments are welcomed. Thanks guys.

    I know someone who have used a spray on bed liner on their dump after they were already exposed to salt. A few years later he had a liner skin with no steel. The truck was washed several times prior to being coated. The idea sounds plausable on a new unit but it would add weight. A good factory e coat seems to last for 5 to 7 years, but depends on what you are plowing. Snow or pikes of garbage.

    Last year was plowslick to anti-slip this year.

    I would think that would give the snow and ice something to bite on.

    Won't work. It's a cosmetic thing and not very durable

    Its exact same stuff as por15 or Bill Hirsch's Miracle Paint - only with the recycled tires for traction...great stuff.
