    If you're lucky. While the actual coating is only a few mils, you may get 
clumps of slag on the mast from the galvanizing process that need to be filed 
off before it'll pass through the TB. Most of the ones I've gotten galvanized 
were fine but the last one needed lots of filing before it'd slide thru the 

    Check it out on the ground - it's much easier there than up on the top of 
the tower while you're trying to drop the mast down.
