No need to rust new wire. I have 1000s of feet of wire already rusted. Just come take it down and replace it with new and it's yours. I'll even pay for the new wire.

if you could drag it in sand or something with a quad, that would probably do it

How about finding some used, rusty stuff to begin with?

I would think the vinegar would work but may take a lot of it. the burning it would be fast but I would not throw it in the fire maybe hang a roll over the fire and not let it get to hot. You should be able to find out how hot it takes to burn off galvanize, I don't think it is very hot and its not the best galvanizing on wire either. I was thinking around 180 would start burning gal. but I may be wrong someone may know

did some research they say muriatic acid will remove the galvanize then wash the metal in soda to stop acid from eating metal and it will rust fast ???
