    Now that’s what I call good, solid, advice. Appreciated.

    I’ve contacted Envirostrip here in the UK for a quote to dip, dip and e-coat and will see what they say. If it avoids the dreaded tinworm for many years to come, I’m all in favour.

    I like the acid dip myself, in my case it was neat that it preserved the factory stamping of the floor metal from early 1965.

    Thanks. Acid dip seems to have strong support from those who have used it.
