Rust removal and powdercoating

I took the advice of some of the forum members, and started using white vinegar to remove rust from parts. I started with carb linkage, and have now moved on to an entire air cleaner submerged in a giant tank full of vinegar.

What looked like an unusable pile of rust is now stripped down to the galvanized surface. I am hoping to have this powder coated, but was wondering if I should also use some laquer thinner or something else to clean everything before I take it to the coating shop. I am also worried the coating shop might not want to coat anything soaked in vinegar, so I was hoping some can share their experience. Thanks.
