Yep that's the new industry standard we use welding gauntlets to handle the stuff till we can dress it with a file

Its only for personal use so I'm not bothered how it looks as long as it keeps the rust at bay.

The company that does the work for Hayling trailers said it would be 1.5x normal prices for all-ready galvanised stuff, just wasn't sure about a mixed job.

Thanks for all the replies.
