I love galvanized pieces... but my customers don't.
They want a more stock look.
We take the factory pieces and then have them done up at the powder coater the way they do boat equipment (zinc under-layer and then coated in black)
That gives a stock look but better protection than the weak factory coating, not as good as hot dip galv., but it looks more stock.
The piece would galvanize well, but it isn't something we would have call for.
