Scott I've no idea, there are ways to preserve it according to the Internet. Such as lacquering over it before it gets really bad, and someone found spraying wd40 over it worked too.

Peter, is it hell. I'm just having some fun with it Wink

Jasper, road salt worked a treat lol

Get some light brown/orange paint mate and water it down Then brush it over the metal areas and it'll look like rust

Some of the bare metal still has a layer of galvanisation on it. Basically didn't sand the bare metal for long enough. Ha! Can break it more when I get home.
