Acid Dip
 
Looking for a reputable company in the Tri-state area that does acid dipping. Someone who knows how to properly neutralize after. I know the Allentown firm shut down and try as I have, the closest place I keep finding is in Eugene Oregon. I know people will say just get it blasted....not interested. Need a dipper.

Any info would be appreciated

There is one near Milwaukee Wis. I dont know if I would ever have body parts dipped again as they started rusting where there were seams. It cleaned so well even pouring paint into the seams didnt stop it from rusting again. Just my 2 cents.

I've heard both extremes actually. I am on classic car forums as well and seems that most have the opposite results depending on how the acid is neutralized in the process. Just trying to find a reputable company in close proximity to NJ.

Just my 2 cents...but i would be nervouse acid dipping. Reason auto manufactures dip cars through ecoat and prime is to get contact inside frame rails (uni-body) and reach areas not obtainable by a spray gun. Once acid dipped you have removed all coatings inside panels and rails and you will never get them sealed again. Resulting in rotting out from the inside. If it were me i would blast them and not with sand but with something soft like corn and bead it back down to metal and only hit the areas i could repaint and seal again. Unless i could have it redipped in ecoat and or primer to reseal again i wouldnt acid dip.

A lot of places the do acid can tell you were to get the ecoating done. I have shade many cars and parts dipped and it is much better then blast. I know it is a drive but I use international stripping in Ohio they do an awesome job. They also use a true acid dip not a burn off then dip in light acid
