    Painting galvanized metal

    I just got a pretty nice galvanized double trailer. I never have liked the look of galvanized metal. I was wondering if anyone had tips on how to paint it.

    I did my loadride a few years back...sanded it down with 80grit, then 320 and hit it with a similar material to rhino liner (for grip when tippytowing along the edge on ramping) ill try to find a pic

    Interesting. According to that article epoxy's would work.

    So this stuff sounds like it may be ideal to use. Salt and Rust resistant. Also says ideal for frames and suspension.

    Hmmmmm I have a double trailer that's kind of old looking. May do this up in a year or so.
