I have re-galvanized tower before.  It certainly extends the life of the 
tower.  If you paint over the new galvanizing, it extends the life a great 

As for the "fitting" issue, even new tower sections will sometimes be a 
"tight" fit.

The best way to handle this is, in my opinion, simply lay out the sections 
horizontally using some type of support, like saw horses, etc., and attempt to 
connect them first.  If a section does not fit well, use another one.  A 
previous section that does not fit well may be a perfect fit on a subsequent 
section.  Number or otherwise mark the sections that fit together well, and 
erect in that order.

Good luck,
