Plus that will help us lose weight off the car in the end.

The chemical bath will strip everything that is not steel off the car. So if you had any aluminum, seam sealer, etc. It will strip off like alka seltzer in water.
That sounds really cool! I'm going to YouTube some time lapse videos of this chemical bath later, hehe.
