electrolysis tank, i need to figure a way to do the whole truck!!!
Just get a Really, "REALLY" Big tank..

[hint, some stripping company's have full dunk tanks]

I dont know what the cost of that is but I know a man here in AZ that does that, last time I was at his shop he had a MBZ 300 gullwing he was dipping.
