Galvanizer in Los Angeles

I was thinking about galvanizing the frame to my hood. Anyone in the area have someone they like. I wrote one place and this is the absurd response I got

Hi Barry,

We would have to strip and re-galvanize the hood frame

Stripping charge $200.00

Galvanizing charge $500.00

Turnaround time of five working days .

I got a quote from a guy here in Chicago to galvanize an entire frame for $600-$800 (not including sandblasting).

I know you're in LA, but if you're interested: michael@reliablegalvanizing.com

Minumum at the place in Delaware is $250. I don't remember what JimC's bill for his frame, two bulkheads and a ton of other stuff was but I think it was under $500 (not including the sandblasting).

Galvanizing here is done strictly by weight. It has been a little while, but I think it was something like $200 for the first 400lbs and then some incremental charge from that point.

yeah most places are like that. I wanted to do my hood frame to start but realize it isnt the most cost effective approach

Too bad you are all the way in Cali, I am getting ready to send a big batch to the galvy place in the next month and it would not be that much to have it done at the same time

I have an old hood frame from my fire damaged 90 I could get to Dave for his NAGC mission and then ship to you if you want.

There is a place called Superior or Supreme plating in Inglewood. They did a bunch of chrome hardware for my boat very cheap. Not sure if they galvanize

Just let me know, I am going to drop stuff off at the blaster and then the galvanizing place so I can get it blasted and dipped for you or Barry. Just cover the additional cost of blasting and dipping (guessing blasting will be about $30 dipping might add $20)

Thanks Dave

As long as the frames are interchangable I wouldnt mind trying it out. WOnder how heavy a frame is to ship
