Damn, that isnt the answer I was looking for! :) Seemed like such an easy 
fix! Ill have to call around and ask someone who does this, see what they 
use. Doesnt seem economical for me to ship them to Europe to get 
dipped... there must be someone here. Maybe even a zip-strip application 
and a little steel wool. I dont mind spending time on them if it works!

Will keep you posted. THanks
