Re: Galvanizing

--------------------------- Begin X.400 Bodypart 1 --------------------------
  I don't think my '84 4KQ is galvanized, it's rusting badly.
  Leagal lightening for SCCA HS!    :)
  My '85 ur-Q, however, is holding up very well and I
  suspect that it may be galvanized, though the hood
  (bonnet) is in tough shape. Perhaps on this car only
  the body was hot-dipped and the hood may not have
  recvd the same treatment.....? '84 4KQ - first year of
  Quattro for the masses!

Not sure when they started.. but my '84 4000Q (the first year for quattro
in the 4k's) had a galvanized body. 300K miles later still totally rust
free and looking great! (and Im in CT where there is a lot of salt too)

Drive Safe, Drive Fast, Drive a Quattro
