    I think paint would be the best option. Prime and paint with rustoleum or a similar product. That way you can do touch ups as needed without bringing it in to the shop. Thats what I'm doing to my plow anyway.

    Then talk to Dano and fluid film the whole thing.

    For plows I prefer Imron paint. Its VERY durable and snow does not stick to it.
