dip it and get it primed(thin etch, and 2k epoxy) correct after, and keep in dry garage until painted and waxoiled... allot of diffrent ways to do this, so be sure its a proper Company.
sorry about spelling errors and other crap from me... I am from noway... I dont know better

My mate wants this done on his saph resto...

I may even get this done on the race cars ... but been told you have to drill a few holes to get the acid out after dipping..

if done correct, they should clean it without drilling... few diffrent acid used, and some make problems. my grpa was dipped, and primed when I got it, but they have used 2kepoxy straight on Without a thin etch first, so have few flaking Places... but I will never do any big resto without dipping again, since the time and Equipment you use trying to clean it, is allot, and still dont get the same endresult since you never get everywhere...

also bring it in closed trailer from and back to heated garage when doing it, since when bare metal it will start quick to corrode...
