Bulkhead T/door post galvanizing question

I'm prepping my bulkheads for galvanizing and I was wondering if you need to remove the tposts and if they need to removed is there a trick to get them out.

Also, do I need to drill out the rivnuts before taking it to the galvanizer.

Thanks.

You do want to remove the t posts and galvanize them too. They are not hard to get out. A stud plate at the front. Two bolts to the roof. Rivets at the body. Floor bolts. I would leave the rivnuts in and then drill and tap them out after galvanizing.

This is for your 90? They don't call them t-posts but I assume you mean the piece that runs between the bulkhead and the tub parallel to the frame rails. It's just a few bolts and they come off easy. Except you'd have already removed them to get the body off the frame so I am not sure this is what you mean!

I'd remove the rivnuts because at best they will come out in the process and at worst you'll have a nasty blob there afterwards.

I'm referring to the posts that attach the bulkhead to the frame and the doors mount too.

Those are part of the bulkhead. It's all one piece.

Do you have any pictures? There really shouldn't have been anything to give you the idea they were in fact removable.

Yup, just do your mods and take it to the galvanizer and ask them to strip it first. At the last galvanizer I used it was about the same price as the actual galvy, and came out to about $1/lb for strip and dip. I expect this place to be the same or cheaper based on Doug's experience.

I thought I needed to bring it to the galvanizers prepped and ready to go. What's the name of the place that will strip it for you? I'd rather just take it to one place and be done w/ it.
