hi, i'm a new guy here. I just bought a 1972 GTO to restore 2 weeks ago. The body/shell looks sweet but I want to have it dipped before I start working on it. Hopefully I can find a company in Ontario Canada that is capable of acid dipping. Nice site BTW. Lots of infos. :seeya: :cheers

You can also search for "material blasters" as well. Not sand blasters, but guys who shoot styrofoam beads, crushed walnut shells, and stuff like that. Their process comes out a lot cleaner than the dip as they can concentrate on heavily rusted areas, etc. The walnut shell stuff is pretty amazing -- as it absolutely does not affect any of the good metal. Good luck and have fun.

I remember Richard Petty telling how they used to acid dip the bodys of the old stock cars. When a stock car was a stock car.

They'd use such a hot solution and take so much skin off you could put your finger through the roof :D
