For dipping I went and spent time goobering up the holes for all the bolts with RTV. Really this was a waste of time. The fact is that you have to chase the threads with a tap anyway, so I would say don't worry about it.
5/16 tap chucked in your dewalt and fed slowly into the threads does the trick. If the threads are really full of zinc hit them with the mapp torch then the blow gun then the tap.

those are the door hinge bolt plates, I think maybe Bill was on about the bolt plate that fits into the foot for attaching the lower sill bar between the bulkhead and the tub if a 90, is that right Bill?

Still looking for that place where I can carry a paddle and get asked what's that.

Definitely agree with bill on this. An m8 and m6 drill/tap set is your best friend post-galv. Zinc drills very easily and the tapping is a quick process.

The blowgun trick is neat but wear eye protection! The molten spatter goes everywhere. It does affect surface finish also.

That's what waxoil or used engine oil is for....

Bulkhead more or less repaired for now. Lots of rust and fiberglass disposed of and clean metal in its place. There are still a few problem areas on it but I'm good for now to get components in place.
