On behalf of Expert Village, I'm Terry, and I'm here to tell you today about building a wrought iron fence. As you can see we have a finished product. So the next step with a finished product, we've done, we've already done all of our clean up, is we need to select whether we want to paint it, or just let it be natural rust, or clear coat it, or what have you. If you're going to paint it, it needs to be cleaned up with a lacquer thinner and a rag. Just, you know, be sure that there's no flames around. Installation, it's ready for installation once you've finished it. What most people do is, they do like it rust. Painting, you can either take it and have it powder coated, we have them powder coat it or we paint them here in our paint shop. Just any color you want, hammerite, or regular house exterior coating, or an automobile paint, just whatever color you can get matched. Installation, that, there's a little more into installation after building it. Of course the clips need welding on the ends. This particular one will get feet at the bottom of the legs, and will be bolted to the top of a block wall. So that's the way this one is attached.
