Galvaizing

I just picked up a set of b posts and sills for my 110. Before fitting them I would like to get them galvanized. What do I do to ensure threads are still useable after galvanizing.

I think my galvy place puts it on thicker than most, I had major issues trying to retap threads on my first batch and even had some 8 mm holes that were filled solid

Here is the page with the info of what I tried and the results, I would have posted it last night but I was posting from my cell phone.

I am happy with the results
