Some of you know I am restoring a 641 right now, and I decided to paint my pair of new aftermarket wheels last evening. Decided to do this outside, since it was warm out and a really nice evening, and I could continue working on other stuff in the garage.
Here was my result.....do you think I've approached the galvanized wheel look? Tell me what you think, as this was by accident. I completely intended to just spray them silver and be done with it. I'll (embarrassingly) tell in a follow up posting how this happened.

Hard to see here:

But it's very distinct shiny and dull, mostly dull, and patchy:

It is mostly a dull finish:

Unless I'm terribly mistaken the original wheels were cadmium plated. I have a couple of them that still have some of the cadmium plating on them. The finish is not as rough as galvanizing.

Bring it to a galvanizing place and have the real deal done.
My 16' 11K gvw trailer was hot dipped when it was built 14 or 15 years ago.
Not a speck of rust anywhere.

Yeah, if I wanted to make it look galvanized, I would have taken it to have it.....galvanized. I just plain screwed up and got caught with a pop-up thunderstorm. I was in the process of just laying down single-stage silver enamel.

Question on your trailer if you don't mind me asking. Do you remember about how much that ran you $$$ back in the day? Once all the play money stops flowing outward from my tractor resto, I plan to build a small trailer, and I'd love to have it dunked like yours. Thanks.

I traded a bunch of tractor parts to a friend of mine who built this trailer.
He built a new, bigger one. A 26' tandem/dual 5th wheel and had it hot dipped. I think he paid about $1300 for that. They charge by the lbs of zink it takes.
Pretty significant up front cost but it's pretty much good forever.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

Busted!!!

Was a pleasant evening with good temps. No forecast for overnight showers, and by the time it was dark outside, the paint was setting up real good. Figured I'd just leave them until morning. Woke up in the middle of the night to a thunderstorm!!!

Thats one feeling I hate, you hear rain, you're in bed, and something's not right outside, uncovered, left some tools out or something like what you had going on. Sometimes at the end of a day, one is tired out, you finish what you were doing, but take one shortcut on clean up, that will change the weather prediction LOL !
