Has anyone considered galvanising their van bodies?
Like old classic ones, there are companies that dip the chassis.

What's ppls thoughts?

34 years is all it will last in grimsville
And even worse things happen at sea
You need a stainless steel van
Although that won't stop the tramps moving in when it's a few years old
I had galv grids in the back yard and dog piss ate them after a couple of years it's bloody rubbish
Then there was my galv bucket but i don't to talk about that :x
