I am looking to get rid of the paint and undercoating on the hood and the two front fenders. They have no rust, but after hand stripping and sanding the bed metal, rear fenders, and rear half of the frame, I was hoping to find something easier and quicker. I thought a "dip" shop would be the easiest. The hood and fenders do not have hidden areas which could not be resealed like the cab. I do not plan to "dip" the cab. It has the usual rust in the rear cab corners and on the lower front area of the doors. These I will take care of with patch panels.
My initial question still stands. Where is a "dipping" shop in the Bay Area? They don't seem to be listed in the "yellow pages".
