Nico, years ago, there was an outfit in Oklahoma City called Oklahoma City Redi Strip. Don't know if they are still in business or not. You can call Parr Automotive and they can tell you if they are or maybe the Yellow Pages can help.

Yeah, there isn't one anywhere close to me unfortunately all the tree huggers are doing their best to shut them down. Fortunately i'm only a few hours from dallas and I can easily drag my beast up there. There used to be a place in houston that did it however I think they went outta business a while ago. If anyone knows of a place in houston or surrounding area please let me know!

Thanx

Nico

paint removing

Streetrodder;

Your post didn't state if your project had enormous amounts of rust or you were planning on chemical dipping for paint removal. If you are in need of paint removal only, you may consider finding a local soda-blaster to handle the project for you. The cost is much less than chemical dipping and the results IN MY OPINION, are much better. the problem with soda blasting is that it is not great for rust removal. Chemical dipping has it's draw backs also. We use both quite often but the process depends on the project condition.

meida blasting... and dip...

I was looking for this same topic a few months back. When I found Media blasting. Media blasting doesn't warp the panels like sand can nor does it take care of rust...but if your doing this dipping for just paint go with media blasting....Plus with dipping you have to strip the entire car, off the frame all the wiring, all the interior, everything...it's just to much money and way, way to much work if the car isn't going to be pure trailer queen.....

I am lucky as I am only a 45 min. drive from Metal Rehab
in Ft. Worth. They are a non acid dip that removes everything
but the metal includeing rust. I have my 54 chevy pickup
doors there now and on the waighting list to dip the cab.

Red face acid dip unibody

I have a 68 camaro and I have found a lot of rust on my car and a lot of it is in the window and back seat, front dash, and passager quarter panel. Most of the rust has worked its way through the metal. I have heard that acid dip will take care of the rust but it was not a good idea for unibody cars. I plan on replacing all of the bad parts and making the car stronger by puting a rollcage in it. I was hoping that I could find a place in CA closer to San Fran. and if I could get the pros and cons form acid dips.

Thanks Fast454camaro

Sounds kind of expensive to me. You might want to shop around some more for someone a little cheaper. I had my '62 done at RediStrip and the cost was $600 and was glass beaded after stripping.
