Took advantage of a warm day

Recommended Posts

For some reason we have two days in the upper 50's and tomorrow is supposed to be in the 60's... so I am taking advantage of that and painting my new 46" spring-trip plow.Did the sanding, decreasing and priming. This is the first couple of coats... hope it stays this shiny!

Just did the 2nd coat on the front. So now I will leave it alone for a week or so to cure before I reassemble it.

I think I may get some nylon washers for the remote angle release mechanism to ensure it moves smoothly. I also have some aluminum bar stock to make a bracket for the control rod.

Good stuff. Nice job coordinating with the weather.Winter remains cancelled; but we might get some snow.Countdown to Spring 2 months, 8 days.And the Daze is getting longer.I really like the "blue sky effect" you captured on your plow - really cool. Looks like promise of good things to come. sm03

Well, it may not stay that shiny but if nothing else I will be glad to have a spring trip. And remote angle control! I have gotten really weary of having to get off my tractor to change the plow angle.
