As with anything else it needs to be clean of course and wiping it down with a good wax and grease remover is important. If it is chaulky you should clean it up with a maroon scotch-brite pad and then degrease right before paint. ZincChromate primers are used on galvanized panels but most any 2 part epoxy should be equally up to the task. Ask your jobber at your paint store.

My Dad always wiped the piece with good old vinegar. It works.

The steel fab shop I used to work in soaked galvanized parts in vinegar before painting, just like bartamos said.

It "etched" the surface and the paint would stick.
