I am looking at picking up a older gleaner combine and would like to reach-out to you all and ask if it is possible to re-galvanize, galvanized metal on a gleaner combine. The sheet metal is faded over the years and I have always wanted to see what the combine looked like when it was first new.

I have been looking at Rust-Oleum Bright galvanized paint. It said on the can that you can just spray it right on top of the old stuff as long as there is no rust. There are two kinds, one is called Cold Galvanized Compound, and the other is called Bright Galvanized Compound. I am wondering what is the difference between the Cold and the Bright. what is going to give me the most original color.

I have little knowledge of the lasting power but there is a product called GALVANOLEOM THAT CAN BE USED OVER RUST ETC. to good effect.

Your talking about Zinc paint. The bright will be more silver, and the other more flat. This will not match a galvanized panel because you will not get that pattern of galvanized metal. You will in the end get a panel with chalky grey paint.

I am willing to lose the pattern in order to get the brightness and color back. If there is no way of restoring the original Galvanization of its bright color then what do I need to do without taking the hole combine apart to get back the Brightness and color?

I have used cold galvanizing paint. I believe it was a Rustoleum product. It will come out as a flat medium gray, looks nothing like galvanized tin. It does however work great on touching up hot dipped galvanized boat trailers and anything else you want to keep from rusting. It will not match original galvanized materials though. I would think a semi gloss metallic silver paint might be your closest match. At least it would look silver and have a slight shine from a distance. By the way Gleaners had a disparaging nickname the "Silver Re-seeder". Don't know if its true, but it is funny.

Thanks for the help! The "Silver Seeder" is a very well known quote from the early 80s when Gleaner was switching over from conventional combines to Rotary combines. they specked out the old conventional M's till grain started coming out the back, using too large of heads for the narrow threshing design it was. It took awhile till Gleaner was able to get all the bugs out of the rotary like all the other combine manufacturers, but when they did the bad name of the conventional's stuck with the rotary unfortunately.

Isaac, gleamers were called "silver seeders" DECADES before the era you mention.

CLR cleaner brings the shine back, but if
you use too much, it will remove the zinc.
