I wouldn't worry about wet sanding. Does the plow have rust spots or is the paint just flaking. If its just flaking and you don't have to get rid of any corrosion just lightly sand the whole plow so the new paint will stick. Use some medium sandpaper probobly 80-120 grit and find some good rust preventive paint.

There is a couple products that lock the rust up and make a paintable service. I would go the the dump and see about household product recycling (people turn in paint and they let others take it for free), or get a quart of Rustoleum. Rust-Oleum Brands - Stopping Rust is Just the Start

if it has alot of flaky paint, you might try sand blasting it.

Yeah good catch, but their really isn't a good place on the forum to put it. Maybe we should add a section on painting, and body work, or somthing along those lines. Doesn't really fit in the topics for the off topic section either. I guess I don't see any harm with it here

might be a bad time to sell the plow. Farmers Almanac says this winter is gonna be the roughest one in years.

If I was gonna repaint it I would rough it up with a wire wheel first to knock off the flaking paint and bust off any rust. THen either krylon or rustoleum would be my pick for rattle can.
