Tom, I Galvanized my bulkhead with out a problem. You do have to make sure that the tank isn't too hot. The Galvanizers use different temps depending upon the operation and what they are running. If you are going to paint it do not have them dip it in the oil tank after they are done galvanizing it. Otherwise you need to clean it so that you get all of the oil off of it. The main concern on mine was that the material got into the center of the bulkhead. The place I took it to in Ashville, VA took time and did it right. No noticeable warping. I painted mine with out a problem.
I am not a chemical engineer but the material used in galvanizing is a sacrificial metal. The action of rusting will attack the galvanized material before it attacks the metal. Even if everything doesn't get covered the material close to it will react first before the metal. It is similar to a boat that has zink's on the shaft to prevent corrosion.

Galv is best. Paint with epoxy primer like Awl Grip 545. Top coat with two part polyurethane. No more worries.

Slight wave on flat (non visible) areas of my bulkhead and there might just be a 1/8 of movement somewhere cause it takes a little persuasion to get it back on the bolts/frame.

I read this is the stuff to use on the bulkhead after Galvy, but it looks like its not sold in the US.
Is it called something else here?

When getting it dipped just make sure they let it air cool and it will be fine.

Does anyone have a list of all the little plastic plugs, clips, and othe misc little fittings for the NAS D110 bulkhead? Mine is totally stripped down and I'd like to do new when it comes back from Galvy.

I don't but when I did it I called Les as Roversnorth and he got me everything I needed (which was not everything because I had saved most of the orange ones and a bunch of others I saved too).

I bought like $1000 worth of little stuff (bolts, fixings, LHD dash parts etc.) over the course of a couple month and I used to ring up les and say "it is your least favorite customer" and he would laugh, but he did a great job finding everything and the prices were reasonable (I bought a lot of stuff!) save a few things like the square nuts for the rear crossmember area.

Thanks Ron. I'm really focused on the engine facing side. I'm hoping much of the dash side is ok.

He got me all that stuff too. The clip that hold the zip tie, the brake pipe brackets etc. You will not be able to get all of the inside stuff out in one piece so you will need some of those too.

He's quite right about the challenge of salvaging the small inserts on both sides of the bulkhead. I ran through the parts book and ordered the correct quantity of everything that fits into the bulkhead on both sides. I should have my list somewhere but it is set up for ROW trucks.

The one that attaches to the bulkhead is steel and I had that one dipped but the one that goes around the gear shifter is aluminum (atleast mine was)

That makes sense, since that's the one that rusted out on my 90.
I just bought the high temp RVT, did you make plugs, or did you put it on the bolts?
