I have a homemade outboard motor extension handle similar to this: https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B07BWXZN2J/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
The narrow part on the right is hand-sanded galvanized steel pipe (chainlink fence pipe). The wider part on the left is bare exhaust pipe. The two pieces are welded together.
I want to paint the entire thing to prevent corrosion and to make it look good.
What kind of paint should I use? I'm under the impression most paints and primers are designed for galvanized steel, or regular steel, but not both.
I'm aware that welding galvanized steel produces toxic fumes and should avoided or prepped/ground away. I didn't do the welding myself.
