Quick note if you end up with galvanized then you have to clean the coating/film off of it or it won't hold paint very long.
Just use some white vinegar and a rag to clean it before paint.

Roger that...galvanized absolutely MUST be etched before paint will adhere. And it usually takes more than just vinegar.

Yep. Or even better- use some ospho if you have some. It works well on galv to prep for paint.
