    you could just leave it galvanised no harm in that and then spray paint or paint glavafroid as RayD explained if you have made any cut's/ holes we used these by the case load every week at 10 euros a pop https://www.mabeo-direct.com/A-261595-jelt-galvanisation-a-froid-galva-mat?utm_source=twenga&utm_param=eyJlcyI6Mjk5MDczLCJzIjo5NTg4MjM3LCJjaSI6IjAxM2E4ZWFhMmQ1MjRlZTNiZDk1ZTk2OGQ1MGMxZTNmIiwiaSI6IjAiLCJ0cyI6MTU0NDQ2NDI2NSwidiI6Mywic28iOjEyMDAsInAiOjEsImNhIjoxOTU3M30=&utm_campaign=twenga&utm_medium=cpc&gclid=Cj0KCQiAurjgBRCqARIsAD09sg_SYKuFCODa7iYe38X19UFuALMH4wldiaxrnj1UCoeEomUx4AqP5RkaAsxPEALw_wcB
