Great looking project...

What it really needs is a nice black Mohair 3/4 tilt & H/D hood frame for the back and I just happen to have one for sale... How lucky are you !

Drop us a pm if interested

Keep up the good work !

Galvanizing your Frame?

There is a place in Ashland area that some of the members have had good luck with.
There are 2 different places in that area.
One is good and the other not so good.
Uncle Douglas and Mark Garrenton had work done at Commonwealth Galvanizing location in Ashland with positive customer satisfaction.

DO NOT go to Virginia Galvanizing as they are terrible to deal with.
We have several members who will never go back to Virginia Galvanizing, including myself.

Oh thank you. I use some vendors back in VA that are great but in swva area. If you ever need anything done that direction lemme know. I am CA right now, so finding new places has been tough. This forum has been a lifesaver so far. I think on this frame I am just going to powdercoat it. Have you ever known anyone to powdercoat anything that has been previously galvanized?

You're going to have to dry strip it (sandblast) and take it down to the metal before powder coating. Maybe an acid bath first. Ask your powder coater.

That could be media blasting though where you are. I'd ask though. I know here in Northeast media blasting (soda, bead, etc.) is anything but sand.

I wouldn't powder coat it. Rover frames rust from the inside out.

If you have the opportunity to get it galv'd go for that..... you can always paint it black later. Then it'll last..... long long time....

Yes galvanizing is a good idea, but don't think it's a panacea for rust. There's a lot of factors that determine its longevity particularly preparation. Galvanizing does not change the molecular structure of the metal, it's just a zinc bond to the exposed surface.

If you do powder coat, then the maintenance is different to prevent rust. An old school mechanic I know sprays diesel fuel in his chassis every other year to prevent rust.

haha we used diesel fuel for lots of things! Honestly, I was thinking back to my farm days seeing galvanized gates lasting for 50 years and then how the powdered coated or painted gates rust would seep out of the open areas and places missed. depending on how much its going to cost, i may just buy a new frame. I plan on keeping this gem for along time. Although I cant see it getting wet again very much if any. I truly like the look of a nice clean black frame, but it seems like the galvanized sets some kind of precedence in the defender community . Maybe I am wrong I am a newbie.

If you want a black frame, then paint it black after you galvy it. Please galvy it though.
