Hot dip galvanize is a globby, sloppy process as far as auto frames are concerned. Go look at chain link fence hardware at your home center to see how it looks. Do you even know where it could be done? A better approach would be to electroplate in zinc but that is not practical. After zinc coating, it is difficult to get paint to stick to the coating for very long. My suggestion is to have the frame powder coated. Can be done in any color of the rainbow, FAR superior appearance to zinc and will last as long or longer. Probably cheaper too.
