is it possible to get the cab acid dipped?

it just seems like it would be the best way to remove all the rust from the entire cab inside and out. who does this and does anyone know what it might cost?

There are companies that do this.

I suggest you purchase a Hemmings Motor news ... and look at it and there are always companies advertising their services to do this ...

I prefer the old fashioned way ... sand paper and stripper @ home but I have never had a car that needed a complete acid bath. We have a chemical dipper/stripper about 100 miles from my home here in the Carolinas and a friend had his 32 Victoria done. Looked really clean ... but he had problems later ... all the acid removal chemical cleaned the areas between two pieces of metal ( sub frame structures and such ) ... and rust jumped back real hard because of no protection. He also had paint issues ...

Don't know if you have a Redi Strip in your area but I've been very happy with their work. Just had them dip my '48 Chevy truck fenders and that cost $280. They just told me yesterday dipping the cab would be $750 and each door $150.

So I'll be stripping the cab as Deuce does.

Here are before and after dipping shots of one bad area of a fender.

If you find a stripping joint ( ) anywhere in or near our fair state, please let me know where.

There is one in the Dallas area. The only complaint I have heard of chem stripping is they sometimes don't rinse the chemical completly off causing your paint to begin to bubble off. If you have the money they have the time. I think this is the best approach to stripping paint, rust, filler, etc. from your project.

(Jim, fair chance with this post you will say there really is a Santa!)

awhile back, GMW a member, (works for a company that builds e-coat systems) posted this thread.....strip and e-coat dip in Jackson MS

Here's an e-coated chevelle picture.

You can't do better than a strip and e-coat dip combo....that's bullet proof rust protection as long as the e-coat coating stays intact!

a second choice is Auto Restoration Depot here in central FL (Wachula)
