Where to find galvanized body cappings?

I took out the drivers corner a whie back an I need new capping. Now would be a great time to replace them with a galvanized set. Any ideas where I might find them in the US?

I purchased a set from the following site but I am sure you can get them from Rovers North, RDS or the other normal places.

i have had my cappings galvanized twice. did not turn out as nice as i would have liked. i know there is someone out there that can galvanize these things and do a good job-i just dont know where they are?i ended up with a silverish powder coating for now.

Take it off and have it done your self. Different places do different work. We tried 2 places here in NJ and one was terrible and the other was great. THey have to take there time with the stuff and let it air dry and not quench it in water to cool it.

The problem is the one side is damaged from a rock encounter.
