I wouldn't weld galvanized anything, nor pay anybody else to. Look around you - every community has an oldtimer who drives slow and keeps an oxygren bottle handy. Chances are, he's on his way out cuz he ruined his lungs trying to do welding favors on galvanized steel. "Just work outside and avoid breathing the fumes" is NEVER good enough. That stuff will shorten your life if you try to weld it, just as surely as you'll lose a lip to cancer if you hold galv roofing nails in your mouth.
