    So.... As the awesome plow season fast approaches, I took a look at my plow (swisher) and realized that it is in desperate need of a little tlc. Just wondering what any body else has used to re-paint their plows. I'm also gonna have my buddy work on a different plow mount system for the Swisher plows. I have had enough of playing with their mounting system for the last 4 years! Any ideas on the would also be great! And some pics of how the home made mounting systems work.

    Thanks in advance!!

    I just use rustoleum gloss black. Usually hit it in the fall, and periodically through the season. I just sprayed mine yesterday.

    I built mine, mounts and all. It works extremely well. Any competent fabricator should be able to come up with something that you won't have any trouble with.

    have the swisher plow as well which would work just as well.
