Galvanized NAS roll cage?

For work I send off stuff for galvanizing on a regular basis, and the fab shop I use could toss in my NAS exterior roll cage for little or no expense. Anyone have experience galvanizing the exterior roll cage on the NAS D90s?

Thanks.

So long as it's in good shape and there are holes drilled in the appropriate places, I see no problem. I had my internal cage (non NAS) galvanized, trouble free and came out great (see avatar).

You can also get the colorized galvanizing to be the best of all worlds...

There are some hard parts about galvanizing the roll cage. First powder coating is very hard to get off of the roll cage, even with a sand blaster. Second if you do decide to paint it after, you will be in for a lot of sanding as galvanizing isn't exactly smooth, but be careful not to sand too much or you will sand down through the galvanize. Then of course painting galvanizing is a little more work. My uncle hot dipped his roll cage, then sanded it down and painted it, turned out nice. But it was very time consuming to get the surface even without taking too much off. And since it is round bars we are talking about, not too many machines are helpful in this endeavor, more of a hands on job.

You can even do the tire carrier if you'd like. I think ron evilfij's old for sale thread of his yellow truck had just about anything/everything galvanized that one could.

Yeah, there it is.

Galvanized to prevent corrosion but will paint it black, eventually

If you are going to paint it, why not try zinc plating? I just zinc dipped all the steel parts on my build. They turned out great with no warpage (issue with galvy).

Forgot about zinc. One of the places I used for the restoration of my OGC (old German crap) offers zinc cobalt plating in colors.

The Galvanizers near Boston will color the galvanized metal. Take a look at Duncan's site.
Honestly prefer to leave it as is

I have a cage for one truck already. It's been painted so I'm going to blast that off, have it galvanized and leave it as is. When I have the cage for my other truck made I'll probably leave it galvanized and un-powder un-painted too. I like the look of it. I'm not even sure if I want to repaint the bulkheads ha!
