    just wondering if you or anyone else knows how much it is to get just a truck lettered like that?

    - but the truck and plow both look great, nice set-up

    thanks

    Why not? It's just snow...? Maybe go get you some type of clearcoat spray or something that you can spray over the front of the plow before you start using it, maybe that will help seal the lettering behind a protective coating?

    I like the plow. I think it looks really cool, especially being reflective. If you get a customer it is worth the $75 you have into it. Where are you in Maine? My grandparents live in Tenants Harbor, just south of Rockland.

    Whats going to suck is when you start to plow if one of the letters wears off and the sign doesn't read right. Other than that, looks really good. Money well spent.

    That looks really good, good quality vinyl lettering makes a big diffrerence in appreance. I might just have to copy the lettering on the plow idea for my own plows.
