Yea, steel rims with that deep joint are the worst. You can't clean it out properly and full coverage short of dipping is impossible.
That plow looks fantastic. Which brings up your point on cost. It's just not feasible to do large parts yourself with powder and the cost to pay someone else isn't worth it if you can finish it yourself with an automotive or industrial finish. Personally, if I didn't work in a large powder shop I would be using quality wet coatings as you do. I don't have the money to throw around to pay someone to finish my parts in powder or liquid for that matter.
