Last night wen I was at dads digging out a deck for my newly aquired Bolens H14 I grabbed the old Brinly too.

Today I decided to tear it apart and clean and paint it. I used krylon super maxx in Ivory and rustoleum professional gloss black.

It didn't turn out perfect but I think it ot a much needed improvement. If it was perfect I probably would not want to put it in the dirt. I also finally got to put the stickers on that I picked up from Daniel about 5 years ago.

Great looking plow.  Did you polish it up good before you painted it so it would scour?  If not take it to a farmers field that don't care if you turn the ground a little and start in.  Give you some seat time and work at getting it cleaned up.  Bring a big putty knife with you as the first hour you will be scraping a lot of stuck dirt off, unless you have some real sandy soil.  A plow works the best when they shine like chrome.  Good luck.

Hi the plow looks like new again, I did mine a few yrs ago didn't have decals for but was able to save the old ones, and that reminds me I should fabricate a 3 pt hitch adapter for mine to use with the Power King.

Hey chieffan, good advise sounds like you have experience in the plowing department, mine was pretty rust when I got it shined it up with a sander and then took it to a grave pit to put a better polish on it work good now.

I did sand and wire brush it, just put paint on if to protect it right now. Need to find some Sandy dry stuff to get it polished up.

I just acquired a 10" and 12" plows will be redoing them as well. Nothing like working with good looking equipment!
