If you have a firm who don't know what they're doing having only done
things like posts of thick steel and the like then chances are you're
going to end up with a rather hard to fit bulkhead, yes. Not the case
with the one I had done though, and I've seen plenty others.

That's different again! From the talk of bead blasting I assumed
Andrew meant hot zinc spraying, rather similar to hot dip galvanising
For the chap asking about Galavafroid, I did a series II rear cappings
with that and it's petrol cap and it wore through/off in places in less
than two years. Looks very dull as well, doesn't age that nicely
compared to real galv, but then that vehicle does live on the North
East coast and there is a lot of salt on the road compared to other
parts of the UK.
