A search of the forums only turns up one reference to using Cold Gal(v) as a rust prevention coating whilst there are more mentions of using POR15 and KBS rust seal paint treatments. Not sure of the principal behind the POR15 and KBS paints however given the proven characteristics of galvanising I suspect the cold gal(v) type paints with >90% zinc content would be the better option especially when painted onto the bare metal as an undercoat either on internals of the doors/hatch, the floor pans and/or on the underbody. The photo below shows how a fence/gate post in a coastal location (~100m from the beach) has survived 50 years of salt exposure with a coat of cold gal(v) whilst the barbed wire has not fared well! Anyone used Cold Gal on their Zed?
Just got my first Z and I'm wondering if you guys can instill your wisdom. Is it worth tearing back the sound deatening and look for rust under my floor? Most rust looks to be surface so surely i can just rust kill it, clean it and then spray rust inhibitor and call it a day? I don't really want to make more work for myself if I don't really need to.
