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

Ithink theres a water based one out now for non ferrous metals, galv etc...but im not sold on those stick to the oil based too.

If you cant find that particular one look for zinc phosphate...its the same thing
