Stripping paint

Has anyone here ever taken their car bodys and sheet metal parts to a stripper that dips all the parts in a big tank and lets them soak to strip everything off ?
How did it work out for those who have done it ?
Were you happy with the end results ?
What do you all think off this way of stripping ?
Thanks ,Gene

i havent done it myself.

what i have heard is that dipping a body makes the chemical solution go everywhere specially in places you dont see so you end up with places stripped at bare metal but without any protection cause if you cant see it then you cant paint it. it will then become a area prone to rust.


in some bodys where there are no crevices dipping may be the best option of all.

If the dipping is done by a quality shop they dip the body in a neutralization solution after stripping and you don't have those type of problems.

I had my 41 done about 10 years ago and it's still doing fine.
