Galvanized seems like it would last a long time .------Something that comes to mind if you were to do this , bolts holes could be tapped to clean out the galvanize out the threads , but did you find a tap for the swing arm pivot bolt threads , do you have to grind out the holes for the ball joints, do you have to clean out the oring grooves on the axle tubes and swing arm , what about the rubber bushings in the a-arms ?

Cleaning out the threads is easy enough just run a tap through them. As for the pivot pins for swing arm I have some spares that I leave in and heat the pins to remove later, if that makes sense. The rest is done with a drill and sanded cone.

Yep. I could powder coat or paint but just more cost and you get some good comments when guys see it all finished.

A-arm bushs get pressed out and pressed back in once galvanised. Lots of hours of prep and cleaning but I enjoy most of it.

You have a tank or a friend that galvanizes or what? That's handy. There are places here that do it but it's pricey. I'd love to dip my mid 80's Jeep frames and bodies. Dang things rust if you look at them funny.

Here in New Zealand there are commercial businesses that do the galvanising. Cost me $175 to get everything done.

The environmentalists have shut most of that kind of thing down here, or made it prohibitively expensive with over-regulation.
