Powder coat over fresh Galvanizing results

Picked up my bumperettes and bumper yesterday. I am very happy with the results. Hubbell Galvanizing, near Utica,NY.
The funky looking ellipse you see on the bumper in the 2nd pic is the result of a stinger bar that used to be welded there. Before it went in it was totally ground clean and not visible, they said it is the result of the different silicate level in the welded area building a thinker coat of zinc. Once it's dirty you won't see it.

Nice! I will be interested to hear the long term results once you beat it to hell. I am not a fan of powdercoating, but doing it over galv might solve my biggest concern. Let us know how it goes in a year or so! Looks sharp!

I wanted to keep it black thus the powder, but I won't even touch it up now with the galvy under it. I'm no fan of powder on bare steel either.

You can also do a zinc phosphate undercoat prior to powdercoating. I believe ARB and Equipe do this for their bumpers. Much better look and good scratch protection.

That seems really reasonable price. Did that include the strip of the old finish?

Nope, that I did in the driveway with a can of NAPA aerosol stripper for the painted bumper and a can of Permatex Gasket Remover for the powder coat on the bumperettes. Parts have to be delivered stripped of all paint and powder coat and with holes drilled for venting and draining if the piece has a closed channel. I did 7 3/4" holes across the bottom of the bumper with 2 of them almost right on the edge of the underside and 1 3/4" hole in each end of the bumperettes.


Before photos.

Nicely done. The P-coat doesn't adhere to the galvy very well....but at least it is black eh?
The coating itself is relatively inexpensive. A good thing to keep in mind for those who do not have the capabilities for a huge mess or have a $$ figure attached to their time is that 75 % of the cost is generally the prep etc. which would make this job cost something more like $600 + if it needs to be shipped somewhere.

Indeed the prep did take several dirty hours on a Sunday afternoon. This company sells the combo dip/coat as a product called fusion. They air dry the parts instead of quenching and do a bunch of hand work before the powder goes on. They use it for fencing and handrails etc so it must hold up well. The powder itself seems quite thick.
Time will tell.

yup, I'm quite familiar with the process. Both the Powder coat, and time telling.
