In a previous post on rust removal, chemical dipping was mentioned. I was wandering if anyone knows of a place in the Charlotte. N.C. area that does this? What does it usually cost? Any help appreciated!

Just my .02 diping is the worst thing you can do non acid or not .I have worked on several cars that have had parts and bodies done and have had to cut thing apart and the chemicals are still in the seams even if they are washed and ecoated.I have painted cars and tried to do everything possible from pouring epoxy primer in the seams to spraying grease in the seams after paint and they always bleed .

I don't agree.
I had my entire car chemical dipped 3 years ago. Yes, you will have to deal with some leaching of the chemical for a while, but it will eventually dry out.  I also treated all the seams with a neutralizer which really helped. Remember, most seams are out of sight too.
My car was absolutely beautiful after dipping and I am extremely happy I did it.

That might work. When I did mine I spent a few LONG days with a handheld propane torch heating and drying out all the seams. That was 5 years ago and no leaching or ill effects have appeared. If ya have the time and aren't afraid of what will come back from the dipper it's the only way to go.

I've got my pricing back and dipping my car soon, thanks for all the feed back! I have one more question( for now ) should the cowl tag be removed? I've heard it could be damaged.

Yes.
Most solutions used will attack aluminum.
Take some pictures of before and after to document the removal.
You will be amazed at what the car will look like when you get it back!
Good luck!

Do you mind sharing the ball park price? Are you just dipping the main body or doors and the rest?
