    Well I got a 1 foot by 10 foot piece of rubber. Now I don't know how to mount it onto my Fisher vplow.
    Do I have to drill holes in the plow? Should I cut the rubber into 2 pieces for the V?
    If I do drill holes will they start to rust?
    Any suggestions/pictures would be great.

    You can check in the pictures forum. I just made one for a 9' Boss that cost $15.00, and one for a Blizzard that cost about $30.00. Yes you will have to drill holes, just paint them so they do not rust. :cool:

    Does any one have pictures of snow deflector on a vplow?
    I got the rubber and I am not sure how to cover the hinge area in the middle.

    Check boss's website, I believe that they use 1 piece. holes drilled through plow every 12" or so, and a piece of 1" flat stock metal on top with holes drilled in it too.

    boss uses 2 pieces, one for each wing. There is a 1 inch piece of flat stock to hold it on the plow. there is a 16"x22" over the V part. if you need me to i will post pics tonight.

    Thanks Superduty, Paponte and Matt.
    Install is finished. I used a piece of metal going all the way across the top(2 pieces). I then overlapped a big piece over the V section and just bolted it on. Total cost $35.00 for parts and labor...Rubber was free from the coal mines (old used conveyor belt)

    I used a 1/2 inch thick piece of conveyor belt that I got for free. I thought flat stock would look like s--- so I just used nuts, bolts, and large flat washers. Had to drill my own holes also. Total cost, about $6.00:waving:
