Dwayne, Try doing a google search for "Redi-Strip".
The EPA has shut them down here, but there are other facilities open around the country still.
I will never get another body dipped, I would have individual panels dipped if needed. I have seen the effects of the bleadthrough from remaining solution, and how ineffective the dip is in pinch welds, specifically ones that have a slight build up of oxidation.

Unlike Les, I love working with these guys!! It's not an acid solution, like some are. It's a strong alkaline solution, that if handled properly, will not bleed through or cause problems down the road. It's best to wait a few days to make sure all the pinch weld areas etc. are good and dry before applying primer. I've had nothing less than excellent results!

Ditto on redi strip...They always have done a great job with our panels and they're quick and reasonably priced. It's worth the 4 hour round trip drive from Dayton.
We haven't done a complete body yet but are looking forward to it.
Prior to this, we used American Metal Cleaning in Cincinnati. :evil: We had a series of bad experiences, including lost parts, long wait times and a bent frame. Yes, they bent a frame that we gave them to dip! I could go on, but I don't want to rant... I would never use them again. Let it suffice to say that its worth the trip to Redi-Strip...
