I resemble that!

A blaster might be easier to find than a dipper. Cheaper too!

And I have heard a few good reasons to avoid a dip. Check with your paint supplier on how the paint will react to stripped metal.

Hey , Fizzy
DON'T DIP IT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The chemical gets in every nook and cranny and removes everything from everywhere, like paint or other coatings that are in impossible places to recoat with new paint like between panels where there is more than one layer of sheet metal. The chemical will get between all the areas where panels are spot welded together, it will never rinse clean and will dry between the spot weld areas, Then later after it's painted and you wash it or get caught in the rain those areas get wet and reactivates the chemicals and eats off your new paint off.
Iv'e been there, done that , i'm fighting with a dipped 57 Chevy pickup cab now that I bought from a guy that had it dipped.
Blest it but not with SAND !!!!!!!
