Painting galvanized steel???

I got some galvanized sheet given to me that I want to use on the bus...

It will be getting riveted into place so there will be no welding done...

But, from what I understand is, it's tough to paint...

If not done properly it will fail fast...

Anyone on here have experience painting galvanized steel???

Did it hold up???

What did you do to prep and what did you use to paint it???

I suggest you use the search feature on the forum. I know there was recently discussion of this topic.
