I am intrigued by the glowing TT comments regarding cold galvanizing spray. 
Since my experience is so much to the contrary, I must be &#8220;Ralphing 
up&#8221; the process somehow. I&#8217;m hoping someone here can correct the 
error of my ways.

I have tried 3 different brands. I have enthusiastically read all the promo 
stuff: &#8220;Rich with self-sacrificing zinc, creating a durable bond, etc., 

I have applied the spray paint directly over clean, existing galvanized steel. 
I have applied it to new, buffed (with steel wool, and/or emery cloth) steel, 
and to chemically etched, new steel. I have allowed it to &#8220;cure&#8221; 
for 12 weeks. I have yet to achieve what I would consider a &#8220;bond.&#8221; 
To wit: the paint can be scraped off down to original surface with the 
slightest effort. In fact I can even rub it off with a callus on my thumb!

What am I missing?
