Definately not dipped. Acid gets in the seams and you wont get it out, tiil paint starts peeling.
As me learned colleague BA Barracus says, I got my truck chucked in an oven, and given gas mark 12 for a few hours. All paint comes off, and it then gets a wash down. You end up with a surface rusty shell, that wipes off with a scotchpad. The downside is that it will need cross bracing all over to stop things twisting.
He is located in Oldbury, co-incidentally not too far from Surface Processing.
I did see one big Cadillac going in his oven, so I would imagine a CF would fit.

PM me for more details, if required
