I would agree with Cullen that it is better to use media blasting rather 
than dipping, so long as you don't have a lot of rust to contend with in 
the structure of the car.  The tags are aluminum and probably will be 
devoured by any kind of dipping process.  With media blasting, you can 
mask off the tag and protect it, therefore avoiding its removal.  The 
JAL number tag is just held on with sheet metal screws, so that can be 
removed without any concern.  In any case, it would be wise to 
photograph the car before and after to provide a detailed record of what 
was done and how for future reference.
