> Ok I need to paint my Rohn 25. I currently have feedline, rotater
cables, etc taped to one leg. Any suggestions on how paint underneath
them withour removing all the cables ? I thought about painting all
but the leg with the cables and then once the paint has dried, move
them to another leg. Not easy, but should be doable.
Okay, I guess my first question is why paint it? If it's rusty, it
needs to be prepped and primered in which case you'd need to unattach the
cables from the leg. If it isn't rusty, then some cold galvanizing spray will
work on the existing galvanized coating. The cables may be hiding some rust
so you need to move them out of the way in any case.
When painting, you want to start at the top of the tower and paint
downwards. You can unattach the cables for a ways (10-15 feet or so) and then
go back up and resecure them. Repeat as necessary.
I hope it's worth the effort - hi.
