    I've sold a couple of Brookville 3 windows, I didn't pay any attention to the fact that they were galvanized?

    Flop is this basically the same chop as Ben’s car? It definitely seems cut down into the cool zone.

    I have heard too, that the doors were galvanized. Even some pics show them to have a more silver like finish, compared to the bare metal body.

    Have you noticed any of the welds more brittle on panels that have been galvanized? I know you strip the "to be welded" area first. That's a hazard in itself...

    Could it maybe be aluminized like exhaust tubing is? Usually a thinner coating, and easier to weld. Plus welding on it won't kill you like welding on galvanized steel will.

    No this is straight up white floaty things in the air and ruining gas lenses like it’s going out of style with all the crap popping back when you start an arc .

    You could call Brookville to confirm?

    For what reason ? If it welds like galv smells like galv puts white things in the air like galv it’s a good chance it’s galv . Wear your respirator remove as much as ya can and weld away .

    It's not galvanised fellas, it's zinc coated. Galvanising is a hot dip process. This stuff is I think a plating process. In the uk it's called Zintec, but that might be a brand. It has a uniform surface finish, unlike galvanising, and it is a very light coating which doesn't take much to remove for welding. It's the stuff that many / most modern cars are made of. My Brookville 3w has the 2 doors and the trunk lid made of it. Presumably they didn't make the whole body out of it for the problems in welding it? I dunno.

    This seems like it's skewing from the point.
    I don't give a fuck what it's coated in.
    Flop keep on it, shit looks amazing.
    I hope you could chop my 34, galvanized or not...

    Oh Man!!! LOVE the chop as well as the quality. Looking at the two different pics of the chopped 3W 's. It went from a COOL Hot Rod to Double Down Bad Ass Looking Hot Rod.
    Keep up the great work. Its' a frigging work of art on wheels.
