Bill,
Looks great but no contour where your shins need to reach the pedals ?

All galvy parts done and tucked away in the barn waiting for your author to return them to their rightful place in the world.

Bill, that's truly a personal preference kind of thing. Having said that, I'd definitely paint a bulkhead. Others may disagree.

IM leaving mine galvy'ed

Ive never seen painted galv that didnt eventually start to peel. I know it can be done but the chances of it happening are hgh and peeling paint is worse than just galvy.

Doesn't galvanization get all crummy and oxidized looking over time?

Can you clear coat it?

It will dull after 3-5 months but actually prefer that to the shiny right out of the tank look

I wouldn't say it looks crummy ever

Awesome. Keep it Rover Chrome. I did and love it. The galvy patina is great.

A couple of pluses for leaving it "raw" - you have a good ground source at all times and the lighter finish is better for seeing items in the engine bay.

Trey snagged a set of galvanized t posts/ B pilars I had sitting around for his 83. Looks good on the early trucks with galvanized cappings.

Ha ha ha you all convinced me! I'll paint where you can see and leave it unpainted in the engine bay, so best of both!
Too cold to do any paint prep so maybe next week,,,

Bill, I would urge you to leave it unpainted too. Series trucks look great with the aluminum panels painted and the bulkhead left "raw" when galvanized.

Bastards! Just FYI the TRW clutch slave has a 12mm fitting, not a 10mm. Fahk.

Getting the bulkhead back in order. Installing sound deadening material and hardura. The nice thing about having a galvanized bulkhead is that you can solder stuff to it. Soldered on the tabs to hold the MLV and foam.
