   There has been much talk of pinholes in the galvanizing on towers or 
cracks from bending.  Suggestions were made to examine every weld joint even 
with a magnifying glass before buying.  Even after that some can slip by.  
Just to make sure, reduce painting maintenance and even extend the life of 
the tower, spray it with 2 coats of Derusto or Cold Galvanizing while it is 
on the ground.  I know of towers that have been totally maintenance free for 
20 years and are still counting.  Grease the telescoping joints and bolts.
