The dipping does a good job of removing everything. Thats where I have a problem with it. You can't get to all of those places to seal it up without submurging it (like ragtopman said). We did a truck at work that was dipped and it came back looking great, but the same issue did we get everything coated? (We hope so). The one we did came back with a coating on it like mwh said, but it was just a soap film coating they sprayed on, it had to be removed with water. I have also seen where some acids have found there way back out from nuks and crannies and stained a new paint job.
So if you do it do all you can to neutralize and protect it (water neutralizes most metal etches). just my $.05 worth.
