    IMO Hammerite changed the recipe years ago. Once upon a time it was virtually a clean, spray on neat & forget about it. Not now-lasts just one season on my garden ironwork.

    Selling in March as start of racing season, obvious time to sell.

    We may buy another, but will obviously be a Canarian one

    POI; Canary Islands aren't named after Canaries, they're named after dogs. Its also why you have Canary Wharf on the Isle of Dogs.

    Is initial treatment more important than the Hammerite coat ?

    Any tips for something I can buy from Ebay to get posted over here ?
    Phosphoric acid is by far the best, you can't get it in UK maybe the Spaniards will let you have some
    Be very careful with it, protective gloves and outdoors, the fumes can be very harmful

    Judging by the pictures you post up the rest does not look much better.

    Use a decent primer, I recommend using a zinc rich primer such as a cold galvanizing spray. Will last a few years.
