Great work on the plow. Did you do any heat treating/hardening on the share tip by chance? I wonder how it'll wear?

On a side note, I actually enjoy the winter. Gives me a chance to get repairs caught up in the shop. Unfortunately, all my vehicles are too tall to fit in my meager 9' high garage door (4x4 suburban and 4x4 2500hd) so they don't get much work will spring unless needed. Even with the winter months, I still don't get ahead of the work I bring in.

on the moldboard the steel is high pressure pipe which is very good steel for ever to cut compared to mild steel so never had to heat treat it at all was 8" pipe , ummm thinking it is 3/16th gauge , all my machines are small compared to a lot you people have
as for winter i enjoy it as its normally to hot here in summer

Could you send me a couple Holdens stateside. I've always been jealous of all the v8 rear drive hot rods you guys have.

Our versions are finally making a comeback. Most GM versions are based on the Australian chassis.
