Not only for my renault , but I'mworking on my metal fabrication station :) I'm also building rotisserie ,
I also removed all the seam sealer from my chassis, blow torch , screwdriver and wirebrush did the job.

Bit better, now durability tests :)
Good work on the electrolytic galvanising but uhm durability test?
Leaving it in the rain for 5 years :D or spraying brine water for some days on it.
Will you do a final coat? e.g. passivate or chromate the galvanised part?
Regards, Joop

I have some sort of yellow chromate
I dipped it in it , but not for long and the chromate should be at about 30degree
So most of it came out with wire brush , there is very little of the yellow left in it and i need to buy some sortvof acid to dip it before galvanising it will improve coating .

Just got myself this wet blaster thing
For 70e to work with my power washer , and i must say I'm positively suprised how well it works.
Wow looks effective. Does it incorporate a grit into the water blast to be that effective ?
