PITA to weld, you have to grind the zinc (?) off anyway and paint doesnt seem to stay on too long. A friend had an 80's ford pu with a galvanized hood, never found anything that'd stick to it for long.

Not worth the hassle

Totally Agree!!

Ya don't use the Galv. The paint won't stick, you got to grind a lot of it off, It's toxic to weld and it's crap. Go get some mild steel and don't waste your time on that Galv. steel. You be glad you did!!

Slam away.
You can etch the galv. off with some muratic acid. Outside of course and stay upwind from it cause it'll fume like crazy. Just leave it in long enough to eat the galv. off and no longer.Wash and dry it and get some primer on it quick,cause it will flash rust as soon as it dry's.
We do this daily when soldering for pan's,chimney caps and such so don't go freaking about the acid "destroying" the metals integrity. Sure, IF you leave it in long enough but just to rid it of the galv. is fine.

There was a time not so long ago when epoxy primer had zinc as one of its components. The government always has to mess with a good thing.
