    Media blast or acid dip?

    My donor T shell (which is in generally excellent condition throughout) is shortly due to be media blasted and all shutz scraped off by hand but we are also considering acid dipping the shell as a cheaper and quicker alternative with the added benefit of total coverage, and then after several rinses, applying an e-coat after the metalwork has been completed and new panels fitted.

    However before we make a decision, I would be grateful for any advice from those who have actually done both firsthand (as opposed to anecdotal advice) in terms of pros and cons of each method and particular things to watch out for.

    Also, are there any other methods for stripping back to bare metal worth considering?
