Cold Galvanizing Compound

Some areas of the body capping have lost the zinc coating.

Has anyone tried these compounds?

I have used it to touch up galvanized boat trailers. They sell it in spray cans- CRC makes a better version.

X2 on the CRC. You can also squirt a little satin finish clear over it too.

Sorry for the million questions...

Do I need to remove the capping from the truck?

Or taping the aluminum with the blue tape will suffice?

Cold galvanizing compounds look somewhat like hot dip. They don't protect anywhere near as well has hot dip. IMO their only use, pretty much, is to mimic the hot dip color. Despite claims to the contrary my experience is that they provide very little more protection than good paint.

I'm debating doing it.

What concerns me is the quality and look.

Price-wise hot dip is $1/lbs and cold is ~$190/Gal.

The body capping are less than 50 lbs.

if you are concerned about rust then take it apart. If this is just about restoring the appearance then use a $10 can of spray ZINC IT. Its 92% zinc so
the closest thing you can get to the finish with out the hastle.
