Coating a galvanized cage help?
« on: August 05, 2011, 02:21:15 AM »
I've ended up with a rather large homemade galvanized cage that I either want to franken into my current cage or use as a seperate cage. Either way this business needs coated and I have no idea where to/how to start..Must be VERY cost effective please. Help?

http://www.ehow.com/how_5169486_paint-galvanized-steel.html I used this method to paint my Bass pan. It's been a few months now, and so far, so good. :) The sanding part is important!

Wow that's way more complicated than I am willing to do..I'd never be able to sand this thing..it's a haphazard flight cage made by clamping together 1/2"x1" hardware cloth. It'd be way too much of a hassle. Anything easier that maybe won't last as long or look  as nice?
