Sounds great! Can I ask about your experience with the dipping process? I've heard stories about the caustic dip (or acid?) not being completely removed and this causing paint problems later. Did the dipping guys coat the bare metal with a primer of some sort? I live in LA and am thinking of getting mine dipped.ThanksTim

I had my work done (2013) by Custom Auto Body, 32961 Calle Perfecto, San Juan Capistrano, CA 92675 (949) 487-9900Carol and Dick Susag and their son operate the business. They have been established in the area for some time and work with specific subs. They would be able to respond to technical questions. On the consumer side of this, I was very pleased with the Susags' work and they are nice people. The car came back dipped, CAB did structural repairs that the dipping uncovered, primed it and painted it. I think it was money well spent because the dipping gets into crevices that you cannot access and I have experienced blasted/paint work that still allows pinhole rusting. This car has been in Texas and now AZ and shows no issues. Living in LA it could be a possible followup for you. Hope this helps.
