    So last weekend, driving to my parents house, their neighborhood hadn't been plowed in a while so my splitter was helping plow the streets and when I got home I noticed a part of the splitter was a bit chewed up. No big deal, shit happens. Decided to clean it up after work today.

    Get some fine sand paper and start sanding slowly from the underside to get the 'strands' of plastic off. Continue a bit more to smooth it out. Don't get too aggressive and sand the front part of the splitter. As long as it's not in horrible shape it should clean up well and may save you that $200 + labor you may spend on a new splitter.

    See attached pics for before and after.

    Guess I should have completed my thought.. I meant to say I usually forget to change from thumbnail to full image once the picture has uploaded.
