Home gym ?

First timer...Hopefully this ? won't get met laughed outa here. Through craigs list and the swap sheet I'm putting together a pretty nice gym in my garage. Between the cold and moisture I know eventually some things will rust. What if anything can I do to avoid this???

Re: Home gym ?

for prevention just rub everything down once a month with a WD40 soaked rag.

if you want to remove rush you can sand it back, use rush removal gel and re-paint.

Re: Home gym ?

I've had a gym in my unheated wood shed which can get some snow in it once in a while. I used itfor 4 yrs and I have yet to wipe anything down. the plates are painted and the bar is chrome . the plates and the bar have a few spots breaking out but nothing that realy bothers it.

Agree unless they are exposed directly to the elements you're never really gonna get rush that effects the equipment.
