Hello Towertalkians

As a sideline to the blend-in painting question, I have perhaps a more 
basic query:  What paint to use in re-coating towers (Rohn 45 in this 
case)?  I have been told to use Rustoleum Cold Galvanizing spray 
(industrial part #2185, consumer part #7785).  This has potentially two 
disadvantages:  1) cost ($6+ per can -- $10+ for the "bright" version 
#2117; 1+ can/section) and more importantly 2) vapor inhalation risk - 
this stuff is dangerous to breathe.

I have therefore been looking for a brushable, canned variety.  The only 
thing I have found so far is Valspar Marine Primer #3084, Vinyl Zinc 
Chromate.  Has anyone used this?  Has anyone any other recommendations?

Thanks and 73
