Question ? For those who have gaLvanized stuff

I'm ALMOST ready to drop a load at the galvanizer! What should I do with the threaded parts? I've seen mention of high temp silicone but need some advice. This is a series 2a 88 and I'm doing the frame, bulkhead and pretty much every other steel part and bracket. DANG there are a lot of pieces
Just when I think I'm done, I find another part or assembly to take apart and add to the pile!

Also, on the smaller pieces, should I wire them together in groups?

Thanks for all the great advice on this project! We are having a blast!

I don't recommend the plug with bolts method. I tried that on my B-pillars and still ended up breaking about 1/4 of them.

I just left all the holes open and re-tapped them after dipping. I did make a mistake and Galveston the screens though, and that made for a lot of work drilling them out...

I also left the threads exposed and retapped. I think it is best. In the industry it is called nine wire that is used to wire parts together.

I would recommend double checking to make sure you haven't included any parts that aren't steel. The inside door pulls, or the small panel on the bulkhead where the choke cable comes thru for example. They wont survive the process. Post up some pics when you get things back!

Me as well, when i got my chassis and B pillars (amongst other bits) dipped... i tried leaving some smaller bolts in place, and couldn't shift them when i got the parts back, so i just left the rest of the holes empty, re-drilled the correct size and re-tapped the threads.

There's quite a few on the B pillars on a 110 SW

Based on previous suggestions I need some metric taps!
Do you guys by tools online or locally?
I live in a tourist town with the nearest Lowes 30 miles one way from my house.
If you have had succes with an online supplier who is it please?

I have been very happy with my craftsman big metric tap and die set. Zinc is really easy to drill and tap as it is so soft.

I covered the threads in red RTV before installing. They came right out no trouble at all.

Hey Dave,
I JUST found your thread about this! GREAT info there!

So just to be clear, you put the red RTV in the threads? like in the tube?

Also, are there any parts that you wish you had done while you were at it?
I keep looking at the drive shafts and wondering if they can be done.
