so on July 2nd i get a call from an engineering firm out of South Dakota (i am in Cleveland, Ohio). hey need a hot dipped galvanized cell phone tower painted by July 7th. its 100 feet long with a circumference of 14 feet.
I tell them $4,200.00 to acid etch, prime with Macropoxy 646 and finish with Acrlon 218 HS. I knew they were in a jam so i taxed them a little.
I get a call yesterday. the pole is now installed and they don't like the color; the need a price to paint it wile it is up. at least its only 97 feet long now.
here are some pics.
