Hello to all and thanks for reading.

     I am in the process of refurbishing a Rohn 45 foldover tower and am
looking for a little advice from the "pros".  First, I intend to sandblast
the pockets of rust and then repaint.  I need to know the best procedure for
repainting.  What kind of primer ??  What kind of Paint ??  Best method to
apply each ??

     From previous posts, It seems a "Cold Galvanize" top coat is
acceptable.  Am I correct on this ??  Don't know anything about the type of
primer to use.

     Spraying makes for a neat job but seems like a lot of waste. Also
wonder if I would get the desired thickness of paint.  Is it better to apply
with a brush or mitt??

     Would greatly appreciate any advice on this project.

                                    Thanks and 73, Sam--K8WVA--
