Galvanizing the bulkhead?

I know this was discussed before but what is the final consensus? Dip the bulkhead just like it is or make a jig/cage for it to hold it in place?

Also what is the beat way to seal the inside of a new door from rust with out removing the skin? I noticed ECR does seam sealing. Anyone know what seam sealing is and the product they use?

Chris, I have done 2 bulkheads and you dont need to build a jig. Just tell them not to quench the bulkhead in water after the galv process to cool it. Tell them to air cool it. Nothing ever warped for me at all.

as for the doors, I removed the skins and galv the frames. then put on new skins and seam sealed them too. they will never rust now.

Randy - where did you buy your replaCement skins ? Was the price favorable or was it a screw-job?
