    Has anyone Rhino lined the framing of a snowplow?
    I have an Arctic snowplow with a poly mull board.
    I was thinking of stripping the plow down to the bare frame and have it Rhino lined.
    I then was going to put it back together with stainless hardware for the mull board and spill shield.
    Any disadvantages of Rhino lining on a snowplow frame?

    Rust. If it chips and you get water underneath it the frame will get rusty.

    Well, why I was thinking of doing the Rhino liner is because the black powder coating peels / is peeling and it is down to bare metal and rusting in spots.
    I figured that the Rhino liner would be tougher / stronger / longer lasting then the powder coating.

    It all comes down to the preperation, Rhino won't hold up any better than the power coat unless you do a great prep.

    It seems to me, if your time is worth anything, you'll just keep it clean and save your money, (make money with your time) when it starts to show some wear, sell it for good money in the fall and get a new one. You're less likely to have a serious breakdown when you need it least, your rig will look nicer, and it's good for the economy. That's just me talkin though.
