bodywork confusion

Hello Gents and Gals

If I do a dip on the sheet metal for my '64 impala, do I do the bodywork first, THEN dip or vice versa?

Much thanks!

personally id say depends on your car! On my mustang, If i dipped it right from the start, i probably wouldn't have a car anymore. the acid would have eaten away enough rust that the thing would have come out in pieces!

if you car just has a few holes, by all means, dip it, spray the whole thing with epoxy, and work on, but in my case I think it will be replace as much metal as I can, Dip it if I can afford it to get rid of any inner panel rust and small pinholes, spray it with epoxy, then body work to make it perfect

Like I said DIP IT first, if it all falls off in the bath it is not worth restoring!!!!

Really. A bath or media blast will let you know exactly what you have to work with...
