I'm experiencing some rust on the original fenders which came with my Calkins trailer. The company was bought by Carnai but when I ordered new fenders, it turned out that they were different than the originals.
My question is: Does anyone know where I could have the fenders glass beaded and hot dip galvanized again? Any idea how much it would cost? Trailer is set up with 13" tires.
The trailer is going to be used primarily in salt water (NJ). I've considered powercoating but I think re-galvanizing the original fenders is probably the better alternative.

Acid dip may be a better way to get the rust off. Talk to
NJ is a long way from home for a Calkins. But they have a good
