Perhaps it is wise, when refurbishing a galvanized tower section that 
shows some rust, to inspect the inside of any tubular member for rust or 
other deterioration.  Rust is a symptom of deteriorating galvanized 
coating, which may, in some cases, occur inside a tube at a rate greater 
than on the outside.  If the galvanized coating fails on the inside, 
painting the outside only may not make that tower section safe to use.
