    thanks bill:waving:

    i used a different paint than i always have in the past. instead of rustoleum i used that valspar that tractor supply company sells. i can't wait to see how it holds up to the abuse it's gonna see. i still have to paint the springs/spring brackets, get it put back together then the whole thing will get a nice coat of ff:cool2:

    got the springs and spring brackets painted yesterday then, got it put back together today. the installation process required a lot of fluid filming:weightlifter::weightlifter:

    first i sprayed/wiped down the area behind where the springs sit since there's no way i could easily do it after they were back on

    next i sprayed the inside of the springs and the sides that face the backside of the plow

    sprayed down the inside and outside of the sprong bracket. the adjustment rod that the bracket slides over was also sprayed liberally but those pictures didn't come out good :(

    soaked all the bolts/washers/nuts

    [​IMG]

    once everything was tightened/adjusted i sprayed the rest of the blade down then wiped it in
