    Hi team, I built a garage using corrugated galvanized sheeting and I want to give it a coat of paint. I was advised to leave it and let the shine go from the zinc. It`s been 2years since I built it and want to know if I need to prime the steel and what would be the best paint to use??

    cheers ... :D :D :D
