[DML] Re: DeLorean Frames

It is difficult to get a good weld with galvanized (zinc coated)
steel. Even doing so the area that is welded has the coating burned
off so it could rust there unless recoated with zinc. The major US
automakers pioneered the use of a product called Zincro. It is sheet
metal coated on only one side and usually formed into a single part
with little welding like a wheel well or a rocker panel (and usually
spot welded). Used in high corrosion places with the unprotected side
exposed to the elements. Higher carbon content usually means higher
strength, not improved corrosion resistance. Other elements are added
for that. The most common form is S/S known for it's superior
resistance to corrosion. It also has a higher tensile strength so it
is heavier and harder to form. More expensive and a little harder to weld.
