I actually had my Rohn 45 fold-over done for real.  It was only $.50 a pound
and they prep it to remove rust (removing paint is more).  I was concerned
about holes filling with zinc - especially the hinge area.  It turned out to
not be a problem.  It's definitely tighter but everything still fits (you'll
need that tapered punch).

My local place was Ace Galvanizing.  You should be able to find a shop in
the phone book.  It's an entire hot-dip process just like the original.  I
just dropped off the pieces and wired them together with my name.  I came
back a week later and they were done.  The tower was so pretty, I've been
looking for other projects to galvanize...

I know this has been asked a thousand times but of course at the time I 
didn' pay attention because I was doing it.Well now I have 3 sections that 
need to be redone so I can go from 60 to 90 feet for my 75/80 rotatable 
dipole I want to put up.So just HOW do you do this.Looking for something in 
a can that I can just spray on.I know I'll have to clean the sections up,do 
you use a steel brush or?  Gregg  K9KL
